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.

imgladimmeAnother one down

and one to go! Yippee!
I passed today’s practical exam with awesome comments from the clinical assessor – I’m so happy :D
Now I have two weeks to study for my final assessment for the year. It seems almost unfair that I have so much time to devote to only one assessment task… 2 years ago

imgladimmeDown to the wire

I just submitted my last written assignment for the year… with 25 mins to spare! That’s still “keeping ahead” in my book. 2 years ago

imgladimmePlaying catch-up

I wish I had more time to spend on here, but I have been persuing this goal with fervour. Presentation tomorrow, 2000 words due on Friday. I chastised myself for a long time over not starting this last one, but now that I have, I can see that it isn’t going to be as much work as I thought, and the things I was doing instead (exercising, playing music) were just as important… so I’m going to go easy on myself… and get back to work2 years ago

imgladimme2 out of 3

I’m doing so fantastically well in this goal… in 2 out 3 units. Urgh. I’ve ignored one of them all semester and now I have TWO WEEKS to complete the entire workload (a group presentation and 2000 word funding proposal)! Time to crack the whip! 2 years ago

imgladimmeNearly there

Just the conclusion to go. I’m already 150 words over my limit, so a bit of editing tomorrow and I’ll be done. Yay! 2 days early. Although, I’m struggling to keep up with the readings and lab preparation I need to have done by Thursday. Another big study day tomorrow.
Roll on Saturday! 2 years ago

imgladimmeI'm turning into a cup of tea

All day working on this literature review, but I’m about half way through. Phew!
oh, gotta pee2 years ago

imgladimmeKeeping up

Week 5 begins. I’m doing well with the weekly lectures, readings and prep-work, but this literature review! Ugh! Shoot me now. There are so many other things I would rather be doing and even though I didn’t go to circus today, or for a lighthouse walk on Sunday or any of the other fun stuff I had planned, I don’t feel any closer to getting it done. I am rather good at chest rolls with the hoop now, however…2 years ago


I’ve become so good at this study thing, that I don’t have the time to spend on 43T that I once did. This semester is HUGE, but also compelling, stimulating and incredibly interesting. I’m loving it. I miss checking in each day, but I am just so keen to keep ahead with my work which could so easily snowball that I’m staying away.

I look forward to catching up in eleven weeks!!! 2 years ago

imgladimmeInstructional program

I have entered all my classes, appointments, exams, assignments etc into outlook. If I actually do get time to scratch myself, it will only be if the computer tells me to! 2 years ago

imgladimmeDay one of a the new semester

I solemnly vow to stay ahead with all my reading, exercises and assignments. There are a couple of really big research and writing assignments and I just cannot afford to let it all go to the last minute like last semester. Even if I did get 93% for that last essay that I wrote in the 48 hours before deadline, I WILL NOT do that againOK I have 2 hours to do the reading for my first class – LOL, what a way to begin!! 2 years ago
