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.

January Boot Camp - 10 new successes (read all 5 entries…)
January Boot Camp: About 60% Done With the Goals

So, it’s February 1st, how did I do with these goals? I’d say I got them about 60% done. I would have liked to have finished more, but perhaps my list was too ambitious. Especially the weight-training one, my right arm still felt pretty bad for most of the month. So I finished Five of them, started four of them, and didn’t really make any progress on one of them. Guess I need to keep working!

INCOMPLETE! •1. Get back on track with my goal of weight-training three times per week. My right arm is still kind of screwed up from my surgery and still-not-finished radiation, so my goal is to get back into this doing at least the lower body and ankle weights. My doctor said I could lift some light weights with my right arm, so I’ll just have to play the upper body weights by ear.
FINISHED! •2. To get started on my “Update My wardrobe goal” I want to complete my closet purge this month. I have an uncomfortable feeling that when I do this, I’m not going to have much let, but that’s okay, then it will be time to go shopping! And I plan on rewarding myself for finishing my radiation with some shopping!
DID WELL HERE! •3. Get some aerobic exercise at least five days a week. Minimum exercise is 1+ miles walking the dog. More as my fatigue and crappy weather allow. Would like to do some riding on the exercise bike. Can’t swim until at least February, need radiation rash to be gone first.
PARTIALLY DONE •4. Clear off my computer desk. Yuck.
DONE! •5. Clean off table in Living Room. Yuck again.
STARTED< BUT NOT FINISHED •6. Give away or store old kids’ books. Decide which ones I want to keep.
SUCCESS! •7. Cook dinner at home at least five times each week. Save money and eat healthier. It’s okay if I buy prepared food from Whole Foods, it’s still much cheaper than eating out.
COMPELTE! •8. Make appointment and get my teeth cleaned. have been procrastinating on this due to the radiation, I need to suck it up and get it done.
ALMOST DONE! 9. Fix tile in guest bathroom. Need to figure out with DH what needs to be done. Mostly this is his job, but I need to keep after him to get it done!
STARTED< NOT DONE! 10. Clean up guest bedroom so it is usable for unexpected guests.
