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.

2 Months to go...

and my home will be paid for. Thanks Dave Ramsey! This might have something to do with it too…

I took the 43 Things Personality Quiz and found out I’m aHealthy Organized Money Manager

Only 8 months to go, possibly less

and I’ll be done. It’s going to be good to be able to give, save and spend more without this mortgage hanging over me. I gotta get out and stimulate that economy.

13 Months to go...

I’m not sure what the math was last April but this time next year, I’ll have that last mortgage payment in sight. Here’s to living like no one else so later you can live like no one else!

33 Months to go...

just 33 monthly super-sized mortgage payments and I’ll be done with debt for good. Thanks to Dave Ramsey for the daily encouragement. The borrower truly is slave to the lender.

Paul has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.
