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.

keep on trying

Well now i have a secret account thet I am hiding from myself for this. It is in another bank and the idea is to just FORGET about the money if it goes in there. Also god forgive me but I am hiding it from my husband who knows i have the account but does not know how much is in it. Because he might calculate it into something so i am just refusing to tell whats in there I say “almost nothing” which is relitively true, compared to how many american dollars exist, my $2000.00 is almost nothing. So $8000.00 to go and I’m not taking it out for any reason inshallah just considering it as not even existing. Now I paid my hight intrest credit card ,so i have no guilt about saving, well somethimes i think I should pay my car with it. BUT NO. Mashallah, I wish my husband would start making bank too and give me a bunch of money but anyway…even on my own I think this is a reasonable goal to try and complete by next Ramadan. If i can resist buying anything.

I'm lame...

8 months and I am actually farther away from this goal…

This is how I can complete this goal

1. sell all my company stocks and put the money in my savings-done deal. But then I have nothing in E-trade.
2.Put $1000 a month in for the next six months. Ouch. But possible.
3. get a job and put all my earnings in savings, part time job mabey it will take four or five months instead of six. Ug but I dont wanna get another job yet.
4.Cash in my retirement account. Tax penalties… and I have to wait until after April 2008 because I guess my old company has to put my profit share in then even though I quit haha.
5.Pray for a windfall.

Perhaps I should get another job

or sell some of my stuff. OR stop buying things!


Well, I dipped into my savings ALOT. Now I’m about 1/5 of the way to this goal. But I’m not giving up.


about half way but dipping into the savings when I want things…
