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.

I moved out of home and stopped relying on others for support.
I haven’t been happier.. Yes my bank balance is low but I have learnt to curb my spending on things I don’t need and find I am saving more because I dont know when I will need to funds to pay bills etc. 11 months ago

ccreech73financial independence

I Pray I am getting a second chance to start over in the financial management of my life department…It is in Gods hands still but, i pray it all works out and I promise myself and my life that I will cherish each moment of this opportunity it is not the best way to gain the second chance by being chronically ill but that is not in my control either…I have to accept what I have been dealt and learn to make the best out of it and my life. also for the people in my life like my children and close family. I cannot let htis chance is granted turn out to be the opossite of what the purpose is. I will be financially free from debt and be able to take care of myself and my children and family. i cannot spend beyond my means and I will not create debt again jsut because i want things. My health is most important and the stress I have now is causing it all to be szome much worse than It should be…Please God grant me this opportunity and I will commit and fulfill my obligation to myself and my family and my promise to you. Thank you 12 months ago
