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.

Claytons i'm living it up

get in shape (read all 9 entries…)

I am really struggling with this goal. I Need to re focus and work harder. But it feels like swimming upstream, and it should feel like swimming downstream. when I was younger (high school, university, then first five years working) it was much easier. I am not sure if it is the demands of my job, my body getting older, or what. I am getting to the point where I want to check this goal off as completed or just give up.

I have fucking had it. I am going to get my 12 things done.


PepperyJasmine is trying to keep it together.

Hmm... swimming...

Have you tried swimming at your local pool? hahaha.

keep trying

I have tried to lose the same 10-15 pounds for several months after gaining during a prednisone treatment. It is harder after we get older but I am going to be praying for you. Try to find something FUN to do, I’m thinking about skating or bicycles myself. Hang in there! You can do it!

Claytons has gotten 19 cheers on this entry.
