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.

December Bootcamp 2011: Dream big, Live now (read all 21 entries…)
Day 22

I feel so out of touch. I have had internet only intermittently for 3 days now and my bootcamp goals have fallen by the wayside. My mother-in-law is staying with us, so I’m not playing guitar or writing (although I sat down and started on a song last night)and have done no exercise. I’ve also been drinking (a couple of glasses of wine the last 2 nights) and not had much water…sigh…on the upside, I discovered, looking through my computer files that I’ve in fact written 4 songs this month, not 3, so that’s a bonus!! I’ve done a lot of paper work for the house and today I have to apply for single parenting payment (not much fun). OK, I’ve still got 11 days to pull it back together – filling the water bottle and planning a walk RIGHT NOW.


Joe Mayer is depressed that the U.S. has set itself up to become a police state.

Right now is good!

It’s always good to jump right back in the saddle and get moving toward the goal again. Good luck for the next 11 days, and of course beyond!

imgladimme has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
