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.

Eimearsimple but effective

gave my credit union book to my mother, who lives right beside it and works only part time. So now all I have to do is give her whatever I want to save and she will drop it in when passing. Why didn’t I think of this before? Had been causing me problems as its only open late one day a week! 3 years ago

EimearVisited the Credit Union today

popped in a tenner…...looked at the woman behind the counter blankly when she asked if I had filled in my slip….. thankfully she was a patient person :-) Don’t mind how small the amount is, as long as I start putting something away regularly. 3 years ago

EimearMy goals are all starting to sound very sensible and worthy

but I need to get this one going, so I can afford to be wild and whacky and adventurous :-) I will start with replacing the 200 euro I borrowed to go away last weekend. 3 years ago


CANT BUY ME LOVE CANT BUY ME HAPPINESS! Really? It can certainly help in both departments and if I want financial freedom I better start doing something about it. 3 years ago
