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.

Well I've just been goin' up shit creek in a speed boat on this one

It wasn’t that I did anything else to put myself here. Again, situations. I knew this month was going to come around. I have been trying really hard to come up with a plan. I think I have one. I hope I have. We will see by next week. If not, I am f**ked.

Not much hope here.

Well, not to be a Debbie Downer, but this little goal of mine is just plain hopeless. This time of year is when things start to go downhill anyhow. My electric bill will soon start to slowly increase more and more – electric heat – old house. My teenage son is, well, a teenager. One thing after another keeps popping up. Medications, tons of school related things, birthdays, and christmas will be coming up in no time.
Frickity Frack!

Who doesn't have this goal?

Down in a hole. Yeah, well that’s me. Can’t seem to climb out and it just keeps getting worse. I scrape by. Juggle bills. Soooo tired of this. It is hard to make a plan of action for this one. It is hard to cut back on little things when you had already cut the little things back long ago.
Not to get too deep in to my situation, but some things are hard to change. Medical, prescriptions, etc.

I have found myself overextending myself at times though, just because I hate being like this all of the time. The broke girlfriend, mom, friend, sister, daughter. Sorry, can’t do that, get that, go there – can’t afford it. So freakin tired of this.

I simply can not come up with a plan for this one. This one is another wait and see. Crap.
