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.

DonderjaegerGetting there

I’m currently working less than I “ought” to – these being my prime earning years – partly due to last year’s injuries. I’m currently in my fourth short-term stint in a job that pays poorly, but which I enjoy (more or less lol) and which has a much more positive work environment than I’m used to.

So I’m not making as much $$ as I “should”...but I’m embracing the concept. (It helps that I’m nearly debt free!) 5 months ago

I’m working on being minimalist, so I only have to live off of less than a thousand dollars a month. 8 months ago

PeaceLoveHippienessan uplifting occupation

I always ended up being miserable with every job I’ve ever had. I recently discovered a job in which I’m able to make my own hours, do what I love doing, all while making good money. It’s still a job so of course I dread going but when I’m there, I have a good time. I only talk to a few coworkers because I’m usually busy, but my managers are super nice and I’m happy to be there. It’s only been about a month, so I won’t change this goal to completed just yet, but I’ll keep y’all posted (;

I’ve finally found a job that brings in the cash and I genuinely love doing. I get along with the people I work with fantastically and I will be really sad to leave…. However, they can’t offer me the proper hours in order to support myself.
But I learnt so much here, one of a few jobs where i’ve stayed longer than a year and I really proved myself and got a bit of authority, I am very proud of myself. Networking and liking the people you work with is very important! 17 months ago
