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.

Finish all dental work by end of 2010 (read all 4 entries…)

I went over a payment plan with my dentist’s office manager and this is likely the most painful part of my treatment (i hope). It’s going into 5 figures over the next year and a half and I have no dental insurance. Part of this expense is simply the result of an accident I had when a child which knocked out or broke a number of my teeth. Years of surgery, repairs, crowns, caps by a number of different doctors and dentists of varying talents has resulted in an uneven and cavity prone set of chompers and a progressively worsening bite problem which gives me morning headaches.

I did expect a large bill to fix them and my bite correctly once and for all but – jeez – i don’t know how i’m going to swing it. this will likely put any plans, vacations and big purchases off for the next 53 years – hopefully i can figure out a reasonable payment plan or get financing.



I want to:
