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.

It seems to go like this, one good day one bad day...

Yesterday was a lousy days… I woke up later than usual, feeling more tired and sluggish. I wanted to keep up with the workouts so I forced myself to get on the treadmill and instead of running I started walking uphill (15% and then 10% towards the end and then 0% for the cool off. Speed only 2.5, 3 at the highest for a little bit). It was great really… I was talking to my parents on the phone the whole time (I was behind in catching up with them, I only get to see them once a year or so), so that helped distract me. Also, does talking while exercising help or hurt? I have no idea.. Anyhow, I don’t know how many calories it was because while still on the phone I forgot to check and turned off the stupid machine. Oh, well.. I’ll just have to do it again today.. although I am thinking of taking a day off… Maybe I just need some rest from it. While usually I feel really energized after a workout, yesterday it just made me feel more tired. I ended up falling asleep twice during the day and had to resort to caffeine to get through the afternoon. Hope today will be better. I think I’ll just stick to playing some wii…



I want to:
