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.

finish my post grad

Well I have finished my post grad – it was only 2 years which doesnt seem that long in retrospect. Although during those two years I was flat out, just trying to manage having a normal life!

What I can say is keep your eyes on the prize, keep working at it in small, acheivable steps!

All the best – you can do it!


Buy a House
Bought an apartment

Definately worth doing, but be sure that you want to make the committment. Before I bought my place I was planning to live over seas for a while, travel, build a car etc. All of those plans are pretty much impossible now, although I feel good that I have established somethign for my future.

At the end of the day, the positives out weigh the negatives, although it is important to ensure your priorities are in order and that buy property is something you are committeed to doing!
