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.

mollyoungaction plan

I’ve noticed that the grades I’ve been getting on my essays and papers are not as great as they used to be. I want to start taking advantage of the writing center to improve my writing skills. 4 months ago

mynameislifeadjustments and new goals.

so I realize that the National Novel Writing Month goal is not very realistic for me. I think it might have some good “pep talk” resources, but I will have to set a smaller goal for myself.

I’m trying to pick up my blog as a more reasonable project. 11 months ago

I put this in my goals because I need a way to express myself. I think writing may be one of my strengths. And it’s something I can do anytime I want.

I really hope to improve my writing skills though. I read through one person’s post here that enrolling in the National Novel Writing month helped them out. Hopefully it will have the same effect on me! 11 months ago

lesliephaIf I lost weight, I can definitely do this!!!

Hi everyone,
I am currently editing my teen romance novel but in the past two weeks I have managed to create my own website promoting my book and also a Facebook page, so publishers will more likely take me on if I get enough Likes. Please drop by and support me, so we can all accomplish our dreams together. My website includes a chapter sample so you can get a feel for what my novel’s about and so much more! And don’t forget to pass on the love. Thanks_

SorAzurereceived a gift

I have a friend who is really supportive about my dream to write a novel. He thinks I’m a good writer and that I have potential. So, when we went out last time, he surprised me with a brand new laptop. He knew I didn’t own one and he said that it would be a good way to launch me on my writing career. Plus, he gave me my first commission! Yeah, he knew I am NOT COOL about taking money from anyone, but he insisted. He said it was so I can get my place hooked up with internet connection. So, I will be doing just that.
We are co-writing a novel together (under pseudonyms) and now that I’ve accepted the laptop and the cash, I have no excuse to not start writing. Let’s see how things will work out. 23 months ago

I would like to enhance my writing skills before I graduate. Being able to write effectively is very important in the world today, hopefully I will be able to work on becoming a better writer by taking some writing intensive classes over the next few semesters. 3 years ago
