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.

ItchyFeetSo Close...

I’ve registered for my last 3 classes for the Fall session, in my certificate program! Wow.. hard to believe….. Dec 17 will be either a day of celebration or a major ‘sleep in’!

Feeling proud of myself for first trying ‘a’ course, then going full tilt. It’s been hard at times, working full time and taking courses at night when your over 50.

So many questions, and worries: Can I do this? Will this get me a good job? Am I too old to be doing this? Why did I do this to myself?? (taking 2 courses at one time is not wise – at least for me)

Good grades, and a lot of hard work (for me, as my brain shuts down about 9pm! when I need to be up by 5 or 5:30) but determined to get this certificate..

Eye on the prize! :) 6 months ago

JermaineHead to heart to action

It’s in my head and heart I just have to take the necessary steps 8 months ago


I attended college for two semesters straight out of high school. In high school I was a high honors student and completed my courses a year early, so in college I decided to take as many classes as I could to do the same. What a terrible idea! No one told me what college was really like and I burnt myself out pretty quickly. I was failing. ME…FAILING! So, I decided to take time off and find a job until I was ready to go back and try again. Well, one year turned into two, two into four, dead end job after dead end job. Now, it’s been eight years! I still don’t know what I want to do for the rest of my life, but whatever it is, I know it needs to be dedicated to helping others. Perhaps Anthropology? We will see… 8 months ago

ecstaciHere goes.

I registered to take a class this summer. I made up my mind and just did it. It’s a general class I would need. I have the tuition covered and it’s online so I wouldn’t have to worry about getting time off work for class. It’s just one class, but it’s a step I’m ready to take. 9 months ago
