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.

user29759 is drinking hot coffee in a cold saturday stormy morning.

figure out what i want to do with my life
you are responsible for you

how did i do it? i sat myself down and figured out what i really wanted to do with my life.

-first and most important: work, i need money to survive and to get the things i want.
a. how did i accomplish this? study hard. i am a working student. i work at home by doing phone assistance and database management.
b. get rid of people’s drama. if it’s not your concern, keep your nose out of it. minimize interaction with people you will not benefit emotionally and professionally from.
c. spend below your means. this mean keeping yourself from partying when you’re suppose to study or work.
d. if you can live without a boyfriend/girlfriend then don’t spend your time with looking for one especially if you are suppose to be reaching your goal. love will come and knock itself to your door. and you won’t ran out of people that will come in and out your life. hello? there are billions of people in the planet.

- i slowly built myself up. i got myself an apartment, build my home stuff one by one and when i can afford it. lived simply enough to save up. now i have my own computer, mobile phone, dvd player, etc.

- i am slowly teaching myself to save up.

- okay, now i need a love life. :p



I want to:
