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.

avianseLegal Career

I have always wanted to be a Lawyer and believe that is my path. I have been researching types of law and have Narrowed it down to Intellectual Property Law and Environmental Law. Intellectual Property Law has a great deal of private sector prospects working in a corporation. Plus I could work in a university or gov. agency. 2 years ago

ABrashier01Step in the right direction

I have chosen a field that I found to be seemingly important in the lives of the public, and quite lucrative. I’m doing research, and have shifted and focused my schooling on Healthcare Management. Anybody have any experience in this field, or any suggestions? Good luck to everyone trying to figure out theirs’, As I was happy to get a light in the right direction. 4 years ago

ned99Pick a career

before i fall into something i hate doing. i need to find something i like to do 4 years ago

JRahibcFZEasier said than done.

Its very hard to pick a career. I’m at the point in my life where I really need to buckle down and start thinking of something. I know a lot of people go into school undecided but i would really rather have one picked out and have my mind set on it. That would make my class selection so much easier and it would help me pick classes that might have more of an impact on my career of choice.

Its difficult because I see all the people around me that have one and are completely set on something. When i talk to some people they ask me what I love to do, then they tell me to think of something around that to do. I find that difficult because along with doing something I enjoy I want to have a stable career so I can support a family with the way the economy is today.

I do have a dilemma on my hands because I really enjoy helping people but I don’t see myself as a doctor, I couldn’t deal with dying people. Also I really enjoy doing manual labor, which I guess I could do around the house. I still have some time but I really need to come up with something fast. 6 years ago


Not to optimistic but I’m working on it. Maybe Transcriptionist….. 6 years ago
