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.

its imperative that i learn to budget. i am proud to say i haven’t bought any clothes or shoes even though there were some major sales and i had a coupon, but i have everything i need.. i need to keep telling myself that. and, i have kept my credit card paid off. i would rather buy furniture and utilities for my apt than clothes i don’t need, or more groceries when i already have food. i have bigger goals. 2 years ago


so pissed i had to pay for a car wash today. but i haven’t bought anything since saturday. 2 years ago

thisntmetomorrow's another day

yeah today didn’t turn out the way i wanted it to. i feared my lunch that i packed went bad so i went out and got chips and candy. $1.89. then after work i spent $16 and paid part of my rent $100. the rent doesn’t count, however the 17.89 does go against my goal. why can’t i just stick to something?? tomorrow’s another day. 2 years ago


already finding it hard. thinking about what i want to get since i have the day off. i think i’ll go shopping in my closet and put away the things i’m not wearing. then go through my craft drawers. need to keep busy. 2 years ago

until no more impulse buys, grocery shopping, retail therapy, or going out. i have everything i need i have food and some nice clothes. part of me wants to rush and buy this nail polish kit i’ve been wanting. but it will be there after 30 days. i will do this. and the right way. 2 years ago


im kinda afraid to start this goal. i like stuff. i like pretty things and tasty things. i love a good sale.. i have to realize i have everything i need. if i do this, i won’t be able to travel until the end of june. and no buying lunch on the fly from the vending machines. no more adventures with my friend…it’ll be okay. at least that’s what i keep telling myself.. maybe i should start after memorial day. there’s always a good sale on memorial day. ok, so that’s it. after memorial day i will start this goal. 2 years ago
