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.

make more friends
make more friends

I want to learn how to make more friends. I don’t like to trust people because I’ve been let down before. I have best friends but they live so far away and I only get to see them like twice a year. I want a friend who we can just hang whenever, who I can trust and have great laughs with. I need to be more open with people and stop telling people NO!

Be in the choir

I love to sing. I have been on the choir in church as a little girl and my early days in high school. I came out because it was boring and my friends were not in it. I miss singing on the choir especially at church. It is so much fun. I am going to find out if they need people on the choir at church.

Become an elemmentary teacher

I love kids and ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to teach. I love being in control and telling people what to do. I am in school working on my degree. I know I’m going to be a wonderful teacher.
