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.

back to square one

it depresses me a bit that everytime i feel like i’m getting somewhere, something comes up that requires me to use my savings. i was doing so well for the past two months when i suddenly had to withdraw everything and use them for that trip to singapore in october. =( now, i’ve stashed 10K in my account and hopefully, i won’t need to use that money in istanbul. =) i really really really want to seriously start saving for the big move to singapore next year because i’m really really gonna need the funds while i’m job-hunting.



tit for tat

i will try to match in savings how much i pay for my credit card every month. that means that for this pay end date, i will pay 7k credit card, next pay end date, 7k savings. =) hopefully, this balances that cashflow statement.



back to square one

this time now, i’m serious about this goal. i got a deposit envelope from hsbc last week and i wrote down the amount i want to deposit by the end of the month so far, i have 220 bucks. haha. i plan to commit a certain amount of money to filling the envelope everyday. =)



deposit number 1

i’m depositing $20 tomorrow for this goal. i know it’s not much, but it’s a start. we all have to start somewhere, right? if i didn’t have boracay to worry about at the end of the month, i would put more in this account and pay more of my debts. but since i’ll be going for a holiday on an island far away from civilization, i have to be liquid till then. (ok, i know i said no vacation leaves till i finish my personal challenge, but i meant it as no vacation leaves until the personal challenge is over, which it isn’t. 45 days to go and after that, no more vacation leaves till i pay my debts.)



where and how to start

i don’t know how to start with this goal because i still have those damn debts to pay. i promise, i’m going to stash a huge chunk of my 13th month pay and then start stashing at least $200 a month after. i’ll cross out this goal as soon as i stash $1200 away.
