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.

candygirrlmissed class yesterday

candygirrlWorking On It!

I’m going to start working on my English paper today, it has to9 be 5-7 pages (sigh haha). But I’m going to do it so that I can be one step closer to getting my degree in nursing. Every paper I turn in, every test I take (and pass!)is a step closer to my nursing degree. 4 years ago


In college right now pursuing my nursing degree. Everyday I’m going to start reminding myself why I’m going to college and keeping my mind focused on GOD and my goal of becoming a nurse. If I don’t do that I’ll end up missing days of school because I don’t like it very much haha. I’ll start keeping a journal here of how many days I miss etc to motivate myself to go to class everyday and stay on track, because if I stay in class then my grades will be even better and I’ll accomplish my goal ALOT quicker. 4 years ago

girl powerEven though

i’ve applied for this degree. For me its more doing it because i have to. I feel like i should do something like this because i have access to an education, even though its not really something that im passionate about.
Three years and a whole lot of money for something im not interested in or passionate about is a foolish idea.
I wanted to take the degree to africa and volunteer but i think i can go there and help out without the degree.
I am pretty sure ive changed my mind. again. 6 years ago
