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.

curbed the urge

to make two online purchases!! :) so happy!

paid for parking on my card which is ok and i took the other two cards out of my wallet!


was supposed to put 10% down on all cards. will be short this month and may miss my $1000 per month too. not a great start! but it’s ok. baby steps!

bad news

tried to use my card today…i had the cash and still tried so i’m going to take it out of my wallet! if i don’t have the money, i really shouldn’t be buying it!

december 31 2010 the goal is in

i will have all of my credit cards paid off! if i do then i get a beach vacation next new years…if not, my friends go without me!

since last entry

i’ve paid off

$600 and i’ll pay another $600 next month

three cards

one of which isn’t mine and that’s the first one to get paid off

the goal is to have them all paid off in 18 months. that’s $750 per month! i’ll need to get my business going in order to make that happen but it’ll be worth it!

and to live my authentic financial life for 18 months would be amazing!

back in 613 and ready to go! has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.
