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.

get out of debt

RIGHT NOW: After successfully completing an interview process, I have just taken a drug test and await a call from my employer. I expect to start working part time at minimum wage next week, and be able to pay off my extravagant apartment rent. I have 3 sources of debt: My apartment ($3200), Military ($243), and Student Loan ($5001). My first goal is to tackle my apartment rent; then my Military debt; and Finally, my student loan debt. I expect to have all of this completed by June of 2010.

THINGS I HAVE DONE: I graduated from a top public university at age 20; I’ve been successful in my post-college job search.

THINGS TO WORK ON: Finding alternative sources of income; Look for a better job; Look for a cheaper apartment for Fall 2009.

THINGS I HAVE DONE: Exercise on and off; Do not consume alcohol, smoke, chew tobacco, or use drugs; Avoid eating certain foods.

THINGS TO WORK ON: To regularly brush and floss my teeth; Stretch more frequently; Stick to a sleeping schedule; Weight Training; Regularly tracking my progress.
