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.

finish my portfolio
one down

Took me a couple of months to build a consistent cartoon art style and less than a week to put it together plus looking for a portfolio site that I like. I’ll start another one soon with something more sketchy / traditional.

Learn to speak French fluently
Bonjour!

Do art for a simple video game
Accomplished

Seeing my game art come to life(moving and all that)gave me a sense of accomplishment. All the time spent into creating it didn’t end up to nothing.

I started learning game art last January when I got an invite from my bro to participate and help do art for their team for Global Game Jam 2013( a 2 day event where game developers and game artists get to collaborate and build games in a very short amount of time) and since I was watching this movie called the ‘YES MAN’ starring Jim Carrey, a movie about saying yes to opportunities etc. I decided to say yes and participate.

The experience during GGJ was good and bad since I had no idea that time how to do game art(pixel art to be specific) and how things worked when making games, especially in a short amount of time, so I ended up getting pressured and stressed out due to sitting In front of the computer the whole day and getting little to no sleep.

But on the light of things, our game: Won Best Game and Sound Design(even though the art wasn’t really good) and I learned a lot from that experience from seeing professionals and amateurs work, pitch and share their ideas, and how to work with others.

So…

This is the game art I did for my bro again, but this time it is pretty decent as I had more time to practice.

I think it will be showcased for Casual Connect 2013 Indie Showcase in Singapore for this May 21 – 23. Fingers crossed.
