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.

become a chiropractor


Entries from everyone


This fall I am starting classes this fall for my pre-chiropractics so its the start of a very long LONG goal. It’ll be worth it in the end. 4 years ago


When I set this goal, I really had no idea how much my life would change in the process of achieving it. Over the past three and a half years, there were so many times I wondered why I was doing it, and if it was worth all of the sacrifices I’d made. Now that I’m here, I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for all that I went through, the people I met along the way, and the opportunity to say, without reservation, that I am a better version of myself for having done it. The greatest reward is having the knowledge and ability to help people get out of pain and improve their overall quality of life, without the use of drugs or surgical intervention.
I’m proud to be a Chiropractor, and I can’t wait to see where this profession takes me, and how many lives I can touch along the way. 6 years ago


Good luck to ppl currently in school. 6 years ago


Tomorrow is my first day as a student at Logan college. We have orientation from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The notion to become a chiropractor has been in my head since 1996 and after initially looking into it this year I thought it might take me until the first part of 2010 before I’d be ready to start – kind of missed that target (but in a good way)
I think I’ll be putting in my final notice at work after the orientation. I gave a clear heads up to my boss on the first of this month and he was decent enough to work with me so I could take attend the class and still work a few extra weeks but, I think the end of this month will probably do it for my networking career.

I’ll be going to Logan College of Chiropractic and starting the Accelerated Science Program (ASP) with an orientation on Tuesday, May 13, 2008.

After successfully completing four chemistry classes, three labs and one biology class I’ll be ready to start “Tri 1” in January of 2009 which will put me on track to obtain my Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in May of 2012. 6 years ago

reneecp223I think I may have found the answer

I am really starting to settle on a decision for my future career. I want something that is going to be both fulfilling and something I am not going to hate waking up in the morning to go to. I would love to start my own practice and also do volunteer work. 7 years ago


I filled out a transcript order form today. I ordered 6 of them. Just need to write out a check and pop it in the mail tomorrow morning. 7 years ago

I graduated in Sept. ‘05. I have really enjoyed the work. I do a lot of work with athleets, they make great patients. The schooling is long but if you just focus it is over before you know it. I would advise shadowing several different chiropractors before making the commitment of going to school. 8 years ago
