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.

Budget done

Now to stick to it.

Made a lot of progress tonight

Maybe when I have some free time when I’m at my parents’ house this weekend, I’ll finish it!


I’ve found some discrepancies in my pay stubs, and I’ve also discovered that I’m going to have to create my own budget plan. The ones that I’ve downloaded aren’t quite going to work for me. Back to the drawing board.

I've started

I have an excel template that looks like it’ll work out great. Now to find all my old bills and get this thing really going and working!

It's time

I really need to create a budget and stick to it. That’s my number 1 goal for this weekend. That and figure out all my expenses, etc.

I guess that’s part of starting a budget though.

Chuq has gotten 32 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
