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.

kylepundDid it but pulled back

I had a thriving part time private practice clientele for a while. But then I found that the more my clients demanded my time, the less time I had for me and my husband. Eventually I found I was working 6-7 days a week. I was too stressed out and I couldn’t take any time off. Now I’ve pulled back on my commitment and stopped taking new clients. I am only seeing a couple of long term clients one evening a week (in addition to my full time school therapist job). In the future, I may expand it again and attempt to go full time private practice, but not for a while. 5 years ago


Well, this is going to happen in a different way than I first thought. I’d been working on becoming an independent contractor through this private practice agency, but apparently that’s not possible until I achieve full licensure. So now I’m working on becoming a W-2 employee there instead. A small, bureaucratic difference in what I’m called and how I’m paid, but nonetheless it’s coming along. 8 years ago


I am successfully building my private practice.
