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.

long-time goal

aside from quitting smoking, this is one of my goals which prove to be very, very challenging! haha.

good news though is that i only have a couple more pounds to shed. according to a chart i referred to, i should only weigh between 91 lbs-113 lbs. blah!

save more money
rainy day pot and sake bottle

i used to have bottles of sola at home, filled with 5-peso coins. well, let’s just say i had a lot of rainy days and i spent them all.

now, i’ve been saving my 10-peso and 5-peso coins in a small ceramic pot jhelo gave me last christmas and it’s already full! but i have another empty bottle of sola i could use.

the 5 and 10 centavo coins i got or found are now in an empty sake bottle. the ones i used to collect are stored in an empty absolut vodka at home.

my bigger goal is to open a dollar account and a time-deposit account. maybe i should review the retirement plan in our company and the savings scheme attached to it. hmmm. i think i should.
