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.

AlixThis is my number one goal in life!

I am a big day and night-time dreamer, so dreaming is not gonna stop anytime soon in my life, BUT!

right now, I’d like to shift the focus on getting more into action and actually doing things and making them happen!

This goal is inspired by this poster, called “Dust off the sketchbook” designed by Ed Nacional and found at this cool website:

This what the artist had to say about his resolution:
“Brush the dust of some of those sketchbook pages and make those ideas a reality.”


More specifically, this means for me:
  • make my travel wishlist happen, starting this Fall
  • prepare my next solo exhibition as a self-taught painter and calligrapher
  • undertake a few (not a gaziilion either) enjoyable courses. exercise: kundalini yoga. professional: engraving for advanced students. creative: firing earthware, with an emphasis on glazing, for advanced students. music-related: learn to tap dance, beginners course. 15 months ago

nydcatl_mdHow to handle difficult, powerful but not smarter than me, BOSS ?

Yes, she is a type of J.A.P. (Jewish American Princess), smart but spoiled, bossy and thinks she is smarter than anybody, but the truth is behind her back, people speak that she is an idiot, obsolete. Her way is the hight way, forcing me to do old fashioned way… I need a space working my job, but she is very nosy.. I know I should find other job, I will talk with other BOSS, who is much smarter thanthe J.A.P. 3 years ago
