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.

eat out less... or at the very least try to have at least two meals a day for a while in my place (healthier, relaxing, better for the soul) (read all 3 entries…)
We're getting better about this... and since we've done it long enough to make it a new habit, I think this goal is complete.

Nearly every time we eat at home, the food is better than when we go out. We’ve come up with a fair amount of new recipes that have been incredibly successful and we’ve definitely started narrowing out restaurants that are places we don’t ever have to eat at again.

By eliminating the convenient food stops and being unwilling to accept the mediocre, we’re much closer to having a diet solely composed of foods we adore. By spending more time at home in the kitchen, we’ve spent more time as a family… helping us all relax as a whole.

Keeping at least two of our meals a day from home has been a great goal. Though I will admit the coffee out at some of my favorite places is missed the most (for the ambiance and conversation mostly), being at home more together has been great for all of our souls.
