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.

almost ready to mark this as done.
in six months i have paid of my car, maintained paying board and phone bills, had a social life… kinda :P and saved 8000 towards my round the world trip. that i leave to go on in two weeks. i mastered the art of not spending, but still having just as much fun. i admit i wasted money occassionally still, when you feel emotional a big night on the town seems essential and nothing else matters. but i worked hard enough that it didnt matter if i did that occassionally.

i need

to make a budget (again) and sort out my tax… but that means admitting how much money i have wasted over the course of the year!
but it must be done.
and ASAP

my aim is to have all the money for the courses i want to do next year saved up by the end of this year, so that i can save all of my money earnt throughout summer break towards my university fees…
hehehe have just talked to my dad. he is an accountant and will help me out :D he is going to take charge of my tax things, hoorah!, and i have arranged with him to organise a budget with me at the end of the year. i just have to manage my accounts til the end of the year. and then he will re-assess with me at the beginning of next year :)
how exciting :D

this is important

i waste so much money. usually on food, of buying coffee for people. i have a tendency to tell people ‘this ones on me’ the problem is… its more than one, and they add up!

28days has gotten 2 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
