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.

i have been in a slump for a while now. it got soo hard that i couldnt do it anymore. i asked for help from my brother and he paid all of my bills off for me!!! and in return, i must cancel ALL CREDIT CARDS!!! save up 1,000 dollars in savings, must not apply for a credit card for one year, and pay him 100 dollars a month till paid off.

total amount paid off= $6,000.00
he saved my life.


i paid off one entire bill, and cut up the card.

now i have i think.. uh.. i dont remember….how many more i have to go. i get lost and confused just thinking about it.


i bought a new car. so i got a 2nd job to afford it. and then when i pay off all my debt. i’m still going to work at my 2nd job so that way i have more income coming in to make more money. :)


paid one bill but its not paid off. just paid the minimum. getting closer to paying them off! :)



i have paid off 2 more cc’ds so i think i have only one more to go, or do i have 2 more???? well, one bill is not a cc’d. so yes and no. i have one cc’d to pay off and one bill to pay. like ticket of some sorts. so, i should be in the clear with all of the other cc’ds. the other 2 things will take me a while. but i’m on the road to success!!!!


hip hip horray!!

this coming friday i will receive my x mas bonus which i will use to pay off either 2-3 credit cards( not sure of the amount i will be receiving). well, i dont want to say pay off the whole sum, i will at least not be overdrawn with 3 cc’ds and pay off the whole balance on 2 of them so i will have like 2 more cc’ds to pay off after friday or i should say monday when the money will be processed.

please cheer!!!


i have 5 cc’ds. i have paid off one just now. i have four more to go!
