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.

patriciaofozi failed

I set out to do this over a year ago but I never did get to do anything. I’ve already received letters from some of my super places telling me they’ve put my money into “unclaimed super”. All I need to do is ensure I sort out this current super account I have since it has the most money.

I suck at this :( 6 years ago


TangerineRoseDone!

Well I’ve done my bit anyways. Compiled all the info required and sent it by email. Will pester them if I don’t get a response shortly. So I’m going to call this goal done! :) hooray for 43Things, otherwise I could have taken a few more months to get around to it… 6 years ago

I have two funds that need to be merged. The fund that I am trying to exit from was set up by a previous employer. I tried to sort this out once before, last year. I received a letter from the fund(after my repeated calls to them over 3 months!) saying they required some more documentation. So I will collect the documents they require so I can get my funds outta there! Once I have tied up this loose end I will feel most happy. I had a horrid experience overall at that former workplace. When I have sorted out my super I will be able to move on and forget that old employer ever existed… :) 6 years ago


Shell74Looking after the future

This is something that I need to do now for the benefit of my financial future. I have 7 different funds and need to roll them all into my current superannuation fund.
I’m happy to say that I have already got the forms and filled them all out. All I need to do is get all the other documentation to prove who I am and then get it all signed by a JP and sent away. Sounds easy. Just need a kick up the backside to get me moving. 7 years ago


patriciaofozanother AIM

I DEFINITELY need to sort this out before I move to the US. So that when I come back to retire here in Australia in some 40 years, I can come home with HEAPS of Super Money! WooHoo! 7 years ago


patriciaofozback to Super SA

Now that I’m back to becoming a public servant for the SA Government, I can go back to putting my super into Super SA. Yay! I’m very happy about this because they have great benefits with Super SA (& it’s only for SA Govt employees).

I guess the only headache is still trying to organise all the other ones to go to Super SA. Really must get that done sometime in the next 2 days. I just wonder how I go about doing so… 7 years ago


patriciaofozhanded in

I actually sorted out PART of my Super this week. I handed the form to my boss. Now all I have to do is Rollover the other 45257893672 Superannuation forms so that all of them can be consolidated into ONE!

I may sort this out tomorrow…if I don’t get distracted by the Internet that is. 7 years ago


patriciaofozi have forms

I dropped by the Statewide Superannuation office in the City this morning & the lovely Angela (who also had the same birthday as me!) gave me all the necessary forms I need to get all this sorted out. How’s that for service?

Now it’s up to me to organise the rest…send it off & viola! Super is done! 7 years ago


patriciaofozstatewide

I’m such a lazy ass that I think I’m just going to go with Statewide Superannuation. 7 years ago


patriciaofozdenied

My plan was to transfer all of my different Superannuation Memberships to my Super SA fund. Well, went to the Super SA office on Friday & found out that because they’re a “special” SA Government Superannuation Fund, I am unable to bring in my other funds into them (since I’m no longer with the Govt.) :( So denied.

Now I have to go choose another of my other funds & transfer not only my Super SA fund, but also the others too. Oh, how much fun that would be. 8 years ago


patriciaofozlong overdue...

I’m going to round up the forms today. I think I have around 4 to lodge & gather up. And since I’m lazy, I’m going to pick Super SA as my main one as I have the most money there & out of all the ones I’ve got, they’re the best at maintaining my money. They get my tick of approval.

I would love to sort this one within the next month. 8 years ago


OliviaRolled over

My four super accounts are now one! Now to hope I can afford to retire one day;-). 8 years ago


OliviaOver a month later

and nothing has been done. I am beginning to suspect the forms probably didn’t make it because the mail room at work SUCK. 8 years ago


OliviaFinally done something

Forms to rollover are in the mail. Have emailed my current super people to make sure everything is set up ok on that end. 8 years ago

OliviaJust super

I’m trying to get them to send me out info but I think that their email form on their website is broken:-/. It’s either them or Australian Ethical so I wish they’d hurry up so I can get that sorted and then work on getting them all combined into the one account. 9 years ago


OliviaAustralian Ethical

I think I will open an account with Australian Ethical and then fill out the required forms to get all of my super transferred there. That’s assuming the small amounts I have dotted around the place haven’t been completely eaten away by fees;-). 9 years ago
