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.

win a free ipod (read all 2 entries…)

hey, um, i need the help of the world. This win a free ipod thing has led to a contest between a friend and I, it’s not who can win a free macbook faster. i need twenty refferals, you just have to sign up for a credit card offer you don’t really have to use it. Will you help me reach a goal please??

the link is

please help me please.

Anyway, I want a macbook for college. I’m starting in March if i can get the money up, but I don’t have any extra money for things like this, I thought this would help me.

trust one person completely
I want to be able to trust a friend

and do so completly, without holding back, and without having to wonder or worry what they think of me. it’s kind of pointless to trust someone if you can’t do it wholly. i think it would be good for me to have that kind of relationship.

And it’s another thing to trust someone and for them not to trust you back. I’m trustworthy, but i guess I can’t control who others trust. So a little trust back would be nice, of course, but that person doesn’t have to trust me 100% on everything. That’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and it might not ever happen to me.

make a budget
I want to make a budget, and then STICK to it

if I make a budget and stick to it, i won’t always spend my money and be broke ALL of the time, will I? that would be nice.

See all entries ...
