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.

get out of debt

School pretty much put me about 15,000 in the hole!!! No lie! Not to mention the credit card companies that pitch a tent on campus to offer unsuspectiong college freshman credit cards. The only thing I have to show for my two maxed out crdit cards are a t-shirt and a stupid plastic watch that I got for signing up for the damn cards. It’s a conspiracy!!

learn how to drive stick-shift

God Bless anyone who can teach me . It seems too complicated – even though I never actually tried – but just the thought of having 3 pedals and driving with both feet would drive me insane.

open my own boutique
U gotta start somewhere

I attended college for 3 years before I realize that a career in Criminal Justice was not my passion. So here I am, on my way to follow a dream that some may think is way far-fetched. I applied to FIT and hopefully I’ll be starting in the Spring of 2006. I have dreams of owning a chic, trendy yet swanky boutique in Dumbo, Brooklyn—then who know? maybe a chain of boutiques?


I want to:
