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.

wellthisisunoriginalAlmost there...

I’ve paid off my overdraft, most of the stuff bought on credit and money owed to family members… It’s just my bicycle left now. I think I have about 700 left to pay :/ which is a lot. I need to find out really so my aim is to call the finance company within the next week to give myself the actual figure. Then I can see when I can pay it off in full instead of monthly installments.

Right now and in the future my aim is to not buy anything on finance ever again. I don’t like the feeling and it creates unwanted stress.

My goal for when I have no debt left is to save 2000-3000, quit my current job and go traveling… I need to start planning so I have something to work towards to keep me motivated. I’m young I don’t want to miss this opportunity. 20 months ago

I will be paying off all my current debt just in time to head off to grad school. I hope to live in such a way as not to occur too much more debt as I finish up my schooling. It has taken me a long time to get it paid off, and I don’t want to have to go through the process again! 2 years ago

Mr_Accountant26th December 2011

I started this process in March 2010 when I realised that my levels of credit card debt were unsustainable. I took out 2 three year loans and used the money to clear off my credit cards. I then closed all but one of the credit card accounts and reduced the credit limit on my remaining card to 1000 euros. I should be virtually debt free by March 2013, excluding my mortage of course. Having to adjust my lifestyle and limit my spending has been really tough at times, some months I have had very little disposable income and so have not always been able to buy what I want or go out at the weekends. I can’t wait until my debts are cleared so that I can start enjoying a comfortable and debt free standard of living. 2 years ago
