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.

Eat food that is better for me than McDonald's when I'm too tired to cook (read all 2 entries…)
I'm getting there

Ok, I’ve been making some healthier food choices lately. I’ve found the easiest thing for me is to do the healthy snack thing. I’ve been buying really healthy snacks, and preparing them, wrapping them up and putting them on a plate in the fridge. So when I get home I’ll have Crackers or bread, cream chees, deli meat, small amounts of chutney and pre-sliced vegies all ready for me to unwrap. Good food, and all I have to do is sit and unwrap ingredients. I also chill a juice or water, so I can pull it out when I get home. It’s worked really well so far. Although I’m still tempted to eat Maccas often, I do it less. Which is good. But to combat, car travel hungries, I’ve been taking fruit and nuts and water in my glove box. Enough to stop me making bad choices….
