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.

marymoonshineso I asked....

So I asked for a nanny job for a GREAT family, caring for a baby and within walking distance.

And I got a nanny job… that I walk to… for the adorable 8 month old baby… of a great little family.

Ask and you shall receive. ;-) 7 months ago

marymoonshineI love this feeling!

I often write to-do lists, or lists of goals in a journal, or goals on 43things … and then forget about them for months/years. BUT I’ve been noticing lately, that whenever I refind a list… I have completed a few things on it!

It’s amazing. Honestly just writing it down or announcing my intention to do it like.. plants a seed in my brain (and in the universe) and eventually I complete the goals.

It’s a beautiful thing! <3 7 months ago


I enjoy living at home and use this time to recharge my soul and also save money.

I grow closer to my family. In summer, when my job ends, I move to Santa Monica. I go back to school. I really enjoy all my classes and my classmates. My S.O. and I get a nice homey little apartment or place of some sort. We are in love and we have fun together everyday. We appreciate each other and enjoy the closeness we have.

I can go to school and take a lot of science and math classes. I am going back to study nutrition OR become a mecical lab technician if that opportunity arises.

I get a beach cruiser and ride it everywhere. Me and Scott share a car. Everything works out wonderfully. <3 23 months ago

marymoonshinehe is..

he is gentle, he is kind. He rubs my back when I’m being a b*tch. He brings me whatever kind of food I want. He tells me I’m beautiful every day…

He is someone who I never would have expected to be with but what could be better than being with someone who thinks I’m great? :) 2 years ago

marymoonshineI have visions of...

I have visions of beautiful, circular housing communities built around massive parks.
Sustainability is key, walking and biking are the best forms of transport + great public transportation.
Food is grown locally.
More communal space, smaller private dwellings.
Shared yards.
Grocery stores are within walking distance.
Retirement homes are located adjacent to schools so that the children and elders can help take care of each other.
Greywater is recycled locally.
Maybe 10 or 12 of these Park groups would be around a central “downtown” area of the city.

I want communities to be beautiful again. :) 2 years ago

marymoonshinealways remember...

You always get what you want…as long as you know what you want.

Only open doors that you intend to walk through.

i’ve been stressed, trying to figure out when/if/where I should go back to school when in reality, I don’t really care.

I don’t care about school. I want to learn from the school of life.
It would be nice to get a job that pays well, of course, but I may be able to find that without going on a traditional academic path.

I want to LIVE. I want to travel. I wish I was independently wealthy so I could do as I please all the time, wouldn’t that be nice?

In reality, I always have just enough money to get by and I guess that’s all you really need. ;) 2 years ago


I ultimately want to live on a commune, in a treehouse and grow food/become a llama farmer.

find community, find true love for the world around me. I want to live lightly on the earth and stop worshipping the gods of consumerism.

Growing up hurts.
first it’s scraped knees and elbows,
bumps and bruises from falling off bikes and skateboards,
then it’s first loves and losses, emotions that tear your heart in two.
Then it’s falling in and out of relationships, jobs, towns, schools, addictions, losing yourself in a new place and finding your self all over again.

Even my scars have scars.
trying to move on but it’s hard to move forward when the past is all I have to hold on to. 2 years ago
