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.

Blast from the Past

This isn’t really about saving money, and it doesn’t really encourage my other goal of making a smaller ecological footprint, but just a memory of how much less money we all used to spend on gas. This is from a run down gas station somewhere along the I-95 corridor through GA.


This is a bad time to start saving money. Not that there are bad times really, but I’m about to spend $3000 I don’t really have yet, so that’s kind of depressing. Upside is that I get to spend two weeks in Paris. I have to keep telling myself that it is worth it, that I will not regret going, and that I can pay down a big credit card bill over time, it doesn’t have to be instant. But it goes against all I’ve been taught – DO NOT GET INTO DEBT. Ah well. At least I’m getting into it knowingly and (somewhat!) willingly. So, any money I put away will still be good. Sigh, okay… just wait, a new goal of mine will soon be “get out of debt.”
