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.

joie de vivreWell, heck

I needed to get a car bought while I still have the strength of our combined credit. So I ran out and looked at cars.

What I’m getting: a Toyota Prius C 3. It’s the last 2013 on the lot, so they supposedly gave me a deal. It’s new, but it’s about the same price as if it were a low-miles used car, as I looked at these. Red, because I have no choice as to the color – last one on the lot. Black interior – again, not the first choice, but acceptable.

It’s smaller than the classic liftback – I can barely fit the bike in the back, with the seats down and the wheel off. I might get a rack, but that’s down the line. For now, the rare times that I’m hauling the bike somewhere – in the back.

And being small – especially since I’m going to be living in the city – is a good thing. I’ll need to maneuver it into small parallel parking spaces.

Gah, so many many big financial decisions, life changes, all in the space of one summer! 4 months ago

It is very a difficult goal! that’s because… It requires a Lot of money!! I have some savings but I though “Do I want to buy a car? or save that money for my studies??” So I decided I’m gonna keep them for my studies!! It is Extremely important to me! So that’s why I give up (right now) on buying a car! Maybe in the future… We’ll see. 5 months ago
