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.

gigisworlda minor setback

Graduate school this year has proven to add an additional sum to my loan amounts, but as a teacher in a new state with lower teacher pay, I must get this masters degree in order to get more income. Therefore, they have pushed me to better myself. I’m not complaining. With more pay, I can greatly accelerate my debt-free self, including student loans, and be a better classroom teacher for my students as well. 11 months ago


I hate my student Loans – I pay more in interest than the actual balance of it. I still have $31,797.42 to go. :( 11 months ago

gigisworldLoan Consolidated

I’ve paid off my outstanding consumer debt, next up is the consumer debt from this summer, as well as my car note. Then, all money on student loans.

I am dreaming of the day when all my money goes to me! It’s going to be even better than I can imagine just sitting here today… 12 months ago
