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.

return library books on time
Just paid 70 dollars

And I’ve paid hundreds of dollars over the years in overdue fines. I actually decided several years ago to stop going to the library altogether and just order books off Amazon. However now that one of my goals is “Stick to a Budget” I realize I have to learn how to return books on time. That is why the library is supposed to be such a great thing b/c it’s free!!! Unless you can’t remember to return your books or you lose them (which I do often)

And to make it worse….my mother is a librarian….


this has always been my problem

I just cant seem to get my lazybackside to the library to return books.I have had numerous library membership casue we kept moving around a lot.When i relised the book was long long long overdue,i would just chicken out by the fine,that i would never return the book and keep it with myself.The first time i had my lib book overdue was when i was in the 3rd grade,then my mom refused to pay for it,she made me pay out of my piggybank.My entire collection went down the drain.Since then just never told mom abt having lib books overdue.:D


I want to:
