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.

Cal, the traffic may be bad, but the weather is GREAT and what better way to enjoy it!! Day 1 I was a bit nervous on the streets, but today I felt much more confident and comfortable.

get paid to do what i love
What could be more important!?

How about just not working?

When was the last time you were unemployed? #1: it sucks not having money, and #2: isn’t it boring as hell?!!

Forget un-employment, forget employment.. How about never “working” again. Intend to get paid to do what you love.

I really believe the secret living a truly fulfilling life is to do every day what we feel passionate about. What lifts us up and makes us feel whole, inspired, energized. No doubt there is a way to transform your passions into something that generates income—NO MATTER WHAT YOUR PASSIONS MAY BE..

Take control of your destiny and take part in the abundance and diversity of this amazing universe.. ¡¡That’s what I am doing!!

A Magical Land of Contrasts

Forget everything you’ve been told. India is a place you must experience for yourself before you can even begin to understand its amazing complexity. Socially, economically, culturally – India’s diversity is perplexing, overwhelming, and moving.
