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.

Don't eat fast food (read all 14 entries…)
Blew It Today

Well today I messed up and ate not one but two food items I’m trying to avoid. I did pretty well up to today but I feel like I need a restart on this. So tomorrow I will start again with Day 1 of 30 days avoiding burgers, fries and other fried foods. The only fried food I’ve been wishing I could have is Ivar’s fish – the cod you get with fish and chips. I don’t miss the chips, just the fish. When I get my 30 days over with I will let myself have the fish as a special treat. I think one item in 30 days is doable. And it’s much better than in the past when I’ve eaten fried foods almost every day.

Ivar’s fish is a downfall of mine too….

Have you read “Supersize Me”? It might help provide motivation for achieving this goal. I might take up this goal in the near future. The stuff they put in the fast food to keep you hooked is scary! Good luck with this one…its a great thing to master!

I didn’t read Supersize Me, but I did see the movie. That’s scary stuff! And pretty good motivation to get started on the junk food goal. Thanks again and good luck to you too!

Carm has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.
