Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

become financially independent with my music
My main goal by now

I used to study at the university, but I spent more time playing the guitar than studying. That was a few years ago, and then I set myself an objective: to become financially independent with my music before I turned 30. I am now 27, and I feel like I’m not working hard enough to reach my objective. I know that it’s a stupid thought, considering that I have 3 musical projects, I’m starting a recording studio with a partner, I’m teaching guitar at a school in Terrassa… but I work very hard and I earn very little! The plan is to earn money with my projects, but I think I’ve chosen the wrong country to work on the musical lines that flow when I write music.
Anyway, I’m confident about my quality as a musician. I just need a bit more of “luck” ;-)


I want to:
