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.

i need representation, new pictures, a thinner waist, a way to submit myself and a head that is completely in the game. i don’t know what is going on with me. i’ve become obsessed with making money because i really need it. i haven’t had the time or the energy to really focus on my acting career. i need to shine myself up but when you’ve lost hope you don’t feel like doing that. i have to remember that my efforts did win me interest from a very dateable bachelor. it did get me into those plays, it did get me a costar role on csi ny…. it has been working for me… i need to really keep putting my energy into rewarding goals – not just paying bills, the electric thing really fucked with me.. . then again, the rent really fucks with me but if i were to put my energy on my one true goal that i have trained for years in i could have a positive outcome. 7 years ago


I am pursuing 2 opportunities at this time and I am proud of myself for that! I have asked for a script from my agent of a new movie that is going to be cast soon and i have asked a friend to have the casting director see me! i am working on things, he said i should be working and now i am going to get some work – after all i deserve it…. it’s just because of my low self esteem that i see things any differently, now onto making tonights dinner…. 7 years ago

caramelizedNot doing anythign

I’m not really doing anything to make this happen. I have submitted myself for some stuff but I really don’t know what my agency is doing. Let’s hope they are doing something. I don’t know what I can do to influence and shape my future. Well meditation, reading, affirmations, collaging, planning, writing things down, that kind of thing. Reading how other people do it, that all works. 7 years ago

caramelizedI just need the opportunity

part of getting new opportunities is feeling really right for them. I want to focus more of my attention on my industry by reading magazines regarding it. Also, articles and just really being in the spirit of the possibilities for myself. My affirmations can help me with this today. As well as, doing some reading and rethinking my goals. 7 years ago


I feel so far away from reaching this goal. I really need a manager I think. My agency gets me meetings but I don’t think I am in the running because they do no follow up. It would take a miracle and I’m praying for one… I’m praying for one. 7 years ago
