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 a masters degree (read all 2 entries…)
Yahoo!!!

One semester down, four more to go. As of January 1, 2014, I’m going to start saying, “I’m done with the graduate program next year!”. This past semester was tumultuous, however, I stayed focused and faithful to God, and he saw me through it!



run the revolon 5k

I did it, and in only 35 minutes! Not bad for a first time. My advice, practice, perserverance, and determination, as well as, a little bit of reserach on the internet. Just Google couch potatoe to 5k!



Finish my pre-req's for Nursing
Feedback Needed!

I’m at a crossroad. I just received my Bachelors Degree in Health Science. My overall goal is to become a Public Health Nurse. I have a five year old and work fulltime for the gov’t(LA County). I live with a roommate and do not have the luxury of moving back home. So I have a couple of ideas: 1.) apply to an accelerated BSN program(12-15months)or Entry Level Master Nursing Program, take a leave of absence from work or resign, and for financial concerns, do savings, borrow from retirement and loans; or 2.)apply to Master’s of Public Health Program and then consider nursing school afterwards. My biggest concern is having a stable income for my child. By the way, I did the nursing program ten years ago but dropped the very last semester of the program because of family issues.
