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.

RagMamaRagPhase I

Got approval from management today for a year’s sabbatical. Unpaid, mind you. So I now have the time. Need to work on the money and the how I will support myself for a year pieces of this puzzle. Selling this condo will help I think. 7 months ago

mrfrooSo worth while.

I feel polished and knowledgeable beyond work experience. I find my confidence at work is more obvious, and I am more outgoing. I definitely learned more about professionalism, leadership, and my writing is improved.

I really recommend for anyone who wants to earn their bachelor’s degree to look into community colleges, first. It really makes the goal come closer because community colleges really are a smaller community and if you bug enough people, they open up so many resources. It is cheaper, too.

Many universities now require freshmen students live on campus and buy a meal plan. That easily adds another $10,000 – $15,000 (a whole low-end KIA) to the cost of college, beyond the $9,000 – $16,000 per year it costs with tuition and fees! Community colleges are less cost prohibitive and give fabulous support to those who are returning students, changing careers, or just feel less confident about the university life. They also offer many alternative choices for classes: in-person, online, televised lectures, and beyond.

For students in high school, many community colleges offer a cross-platform where high school students can earn credits at both institutions at the same time!

I really believe attending a community college and taking advantage of the many resources they have to offer really helped me achieve my goal. 17 months ago
