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.

February Boot Camp - Consistently Improve My Fitness and Nutrition (read all 9 entries…)
Weekend of Feb 5-7

Highlights: 3.5 mile cycle (home from the bike store) and week 2 run on Friday, plenty of fruit, roast veg and loads of salad, much energetic dancing Sat night, opting for ham salad sub instead of fast food for post-nightclub munchies

Lowlights: a bit too much booze, a bit too much lazing around playing old video games with my bros, a bit too much of my new sister-in-law’s homemade fudge (but oh was it scrumptious!)

Could have been a lot worse, all in all. It was a very busy and sociable weekend, which for me often involves grabbing junk food on the go, but I held it together ok. May not have gained any ground, but I don’t think I lost any either.

Alas, though, I managed to bruise my tailbone last night in a most undignified fall which I was by no means drunk enough to deserve. (Seriously, I wasn’t!) It’s quite sore today, so I’ve skipped the run I should have done; I’ll try tomorrow and see how much it’s affected. I’m going to be most put out if this ridiculous injury keeps me from running.


Evie has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
