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.

quit walmart and get a better job


Recent activity

larsthepiratefinally quit

about 2 weeks ago on Nov. 9, I had my last day at Walmart. I feel better already. Now I’m working on the better job part, I’m moving to California by January and still have my part time job at Hot Topic so I’m doing well.

I am so happy to not work there anymore. 4 years ago


I put in my letter of resignation literally 30 minutes after I heard I got the job I wanted. This new job would be working with teens addicted to drugs, a much more meaningful and needed job. Folding clothes for hours doesn’t stand a chance against that.

Good riddens! 7 years ago

larsthepiratemay be closer than i thought...

so depending how everything goes with an interview and such, i may be able to break free of walmart with a better paying job sooner than expected. i’m hoping for the best, but not holding my breath… 8 years ago

larsthepirateit's tearing me down

i’m trying so hard to last after a few target things happening this summer. i have the matches in a week. my birthday next month, 21 might i add. then army of freshmen, warped tour and most likely my boys of suburban legends all before july is up.

i then need to go to california for a week sometime to use my work vacation time. and the fact i need to get back out there.

after those things, i am determining myself to get a better job. one that not only has better pay, but better conditions, better people, and overall better environment.

i’m so sick and tired of being so sick and tired. it’s wearing me down emotionally and physically. i just hope that i can make it just a little longer. i’ve been there for 2 1/2 years, i didn’t even plan to be there that long. argh. 8 years ago
