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.

is starting to get focussed again

become debt free
Will take time, but will be worth it...

This is something I have had in the back of my mind for a long time but not ever really done anything serious about it. I need to get more focussed on this so that I can pay of all my debts and then be able to start saving up to finance the future plans I have.

I will start my making a budget, to help me see what incoming and outgoings I have, and then work out what I can afford to pay off each month. Hopefully keeping this up to date will help me remain on track. I will also try and keep a log of what I am spending money on, to help me work out where I can make savings.

identify 100 things that make me happy (besides money)

This list is going to be difficult for me to do – as much as I try to stay positive, I often find it difficult to identify the things that make ME happy – I spend most of my time trying to make sure others are happy, and don’t tend to worry about myself. Which is why I think this list will definitely be worth doing!

Become ATT qualified
Halfway there!

Passed my first two ATT exams (Personal tax and Business tax) – got 74% and 62%. Hoping to improve on these scores in the next two but am pleased with these results!

Dance in the rain

I did this with a friend whilst we were living in a flat in a Church, which had a paved area round the back. We went out one day and danced in the rain. It was good fun, made me feel so free and alive! Sounds corny but it’s true!

learn sign language

I recently completed BSL level 1. I am so glad I did it.
