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.

do at least 10 little things for myself in May 2009 (read all 16 entries…)
1. buy decent workout clothes

Actually, I did this 2 days early, as I had a discount coupon worth 10 Euros from Marks & Spencer that was valid until Apr 30.
So I bought my first new exercise pants in… several years.
It’s lightweight and very stylish.
Can’t wait to wear it at the gym!

I also got a new

workout se (for my birthday), but didn’t go to gym since. :)

shapeshifter_v if you're going through hell, keep going


I’ve been procrastinating terribly about going to the gym. I’ve been making every excuse in the book.
Too busy in the mornings – too self-conscious in the afternoons – too tired in the evenings.

Spring has never been not a good time for me to exercise!
I want to change this!

Me too, I’m the same. But when I get there, it’s really fun, and I enjoy it, but then again I can’t find the time to go there. :(
Let’s try to change this!
