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.

This Charming Man has been missing in action but is back, Jack!

Get fit and stay fit (read all 6 entries…)
Run because there's nothing else to do.

Yesterday was a mad one.
From feeling so confused, hurt and low in the moring to ending up so optimistic in the evening.
I went to the gym midday and ran
Ran because I had nothing better to do.
ran because it gave me plenty of time to think.
I never stopped running future conversations in my head.
Planning what I was going to do next.

I ran further than I ever had.
8 miles.
In 1 hr 15mins.
I impressed myself.
I think I will do that race.

....That's good....

Your going to be so fit, that there will be no way she can resist you…

Ah if only it was so easy…

Both of us are hopeless romantics..

I still pray he will come back…I haven’t made it through the ebook yet…

I’m afraid to get my hopes up..

But I keep praying for you.

To be honest with you, I’ve throw that away to the side now. I don’t have a month to play around with. I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and regret all the things I never did! I’m living for today.

I pray for us both,
that we may be happy again.
