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.

bevel1Work In Progress

In order to gain the level of financial dependence which I desire; I figure, I’ll need to instantly start cutting back and saving money. Eliminating the things I want but don’t need.

I will need to either create sources of income to increase my financial position, then save as a result until there’ a great abundance.

I will need to market the various things I do online by helping educating, coaching,teaching and equipping others with avenues to help them gain financial increases in their lives as I do the same for self.

Update and Track Progress

Doing these things will certainly aide my challenge to live a comfortable life-style and take nice long vacations on beautiful beaches with the breezy wind blowing ever so gently. 3 days ago

Kato_doing better

so, it’s not as bad as last time. I have a shitty job that is really low-paid but somehow I’m managing to pay off my debts little by little. It’s still a lot, but mostly bank-loans and not money borrowed from friends, so it’s a relief. 1 month ago


I’m taking a course right now to become a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), which offers better pay. ^^ 1 month ago

antalyaless work more money online

I see new system of the 21st century now represents a new generation business roll. This business is similar to ad-words and ad-sense that provides. I want to learn about marketing and startegy to start doing ” less work more money online” like the rest of the world. 2 months ago

goalsaregood43Still not...

Still trying and still going. I have added a new skill to my life: teaching. This has provided me with a little bit of extra income and a light at the end of the tunnel to see that I can do something else with my life! 2 months ago

RexKwonDoTarget: 2022

I was able to get a better paying job that I start in a few weeks. I’m going to try to save around $9k per month, which includes my bonuses. This should put me at my goal in around 8 years. 3 months ago
