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.

master cleanser (read all 12 entries…)
day 7

today is my last day. i have to say that i cheated by drinking some orange juice and it tasted so good. the cleanse has really sent my whole way of thinking in another direction. i had an especially hard day, but instead of turning to external sources for support, i looked within myself to find the courage to keep moving on. and guess what? along the way, i ran into some friends that i hadn’t seen in months. they were there to cheer me on. my ex m.i.l. and i had a great conversation, and even though the day started out to be very difficult, it ended in a very peaceful and happy way. just like my cleanse has…i want to have good memories of this, so i’m not gonna do it another day. but, i will do it again, perhaps to celebrate the new year. jan 1. but also, i plan to cleanse or even fast, one day out of the week. it’s amazing how much i eat, even healthy stuff, when i’m feel lonely, or disappointed or sad. filling myself up, instead of using my own resources…i’m repeating myself.

my honest opinion on the mastercleasne, or whatever version i did, is to try it. be religious about it. really put your energy into it, and see what happens on the other side. i think you’ll find a better outlook, even if you do it just to lose weight. that helps you along the way. the confidence of seeing your body manifest what your mind is encouraging you to do.

have fun cleansers…i’m outta here… until next time.
