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.

beatricekweird timing

I have a budget in place, but keep forgetting/neglecting to keep track.

Responsibility calls for accountability. Two days away from November, going to spend the next three months tracking my expenses weekly and figuring out a good method to follow my pre-set budget.

Page Once was a bust—it was too hard to access everything (bank account, phone account, etc…) in a consistent way, plus it didn’t refresh often enough. I have to be own personal assistant and reminder now.

I’ve got high hopes! 3 years ago

beatricekhere it comes!

July starts this Friday, so there’s no better time than to get cracking on this goal!

From July to the end of September I will be managing my expenses, with the help of my PageOnce “Personal Assistant” application on my Blackberry and the Life After College budget tracker.

This goal is important at any age, but seems even more so now. I have one more year left in college and one more year (technically) to get my ish together. I want to star the year level-headed, creating GOOD spending habits.

As someone who enjoys her fair share of clothes, dinners out, impromptu trips, concerts and etc. I know it won’t be the easiest but I think it’s completely necessary.

I cannot wait to jump into this. 3 years ago
