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.

Work to pay off debt and to get a new car next year (Save $10,000)

I achieved this goal early and the best part about is that I didn’t have to work at McDonald’s to achieve it.

I’m no longer in debt, I recently bought a 2008 Ford Edge and I have more than $10,000.

Financially, it’s been a superb year.

Start microdermabrasion treatments - Have a better looking skin by the end of the year
Again the 14-month pattern.

Instead of doing a bunch of microdermabrasion treatments, I decided to go with the real deal and get dermabrasion done instead.

The surgery will take either in February of 2012 or March the latest.

Although I tried doing microdermabrasion and seen a difference, I’d rather do dermabrasion once and for all.

Visit 3 different countries
1.5 so far?

I started the year by firstly going to Cuba. Then Buffalo (USA) for a total of 6 hours. But hey, that counts!

My plane ticket for Turkey is ready for March 1st so I will have completed this goal but failed to do it within the timeline of one year.

Took a total of 14 months for 3 different countries other than Canada.
