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’m working on this one. I’m pursuing a career in Nursing. I hope to be accepted into the Nursing program at Kishwaukee College beginning the Spring 2014 semester.

I was accepted into the program; I start next week. Now I just have to survive full-time work, raising a family and nursing school. 19 months ago

what would this look like?

working anywhere between 6-6
having to squeeze time in to home school
only having my children on the weekends
having a less cluttered home
making very little money due to lack of degree (but more than I’m earning now)
having a car, a commute, car issues

having co workers
having some respect
possible insurance for myself

missing my babies
depending on their father for childcare

crap. i don’t know. i’m entering a low place that is increasingly difficult to pull out of.

i’m not sure what to do to fix it. 23 months ago


I feel so freaking defeated. I feel so negative about myself, like I have nothing to offer anyone. I have to pull myself out of this. 23 months ago
