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.

get a job i love
Began teaching in Fall 2009.

I started teaching Health to college students last year. While incredibly nervouse at first, I quickly fell into a groove. I love the subject matter, and I love the students. They make me laugh every single day, and it seems I do the same for them. I have found a true calling, and I hope I can always teach at least one class. I had a hunch I would like it, but nowhere NEAR as much as I do!

Play 20 Weddings
So far...

It is now the middle of May. I have played 3 weddings so far, with 5 more booked for the year.

I’m almost half-way to the goal, and I find that I wind up booking a lot at the last minute. This still looks acheivable.

Buy a House

Rob and I went to settlement on the dream house on February 29th. It was a short sale, took a lot of work, but we had a wonderful realtor, and are loving the new house!
