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.

lose weight (read all 6 entries…)
gain power and lose weight

The question is not if you can lose weight.
You know you can.
The question is how you can gain power to say no and focus on your goal.

How you can do that?
By doing small steps each day.
And if you fail. Don’t worry. Just continue next day!

So how to start.
First get only healthy food in your kitchen.
Second go out and walk, run, sprint, enjoy in nature.
Third go to sleep soon enough (you need at least 8 hours)

Can you do it for one day?
Can you?

Cheer if you did it!!!!


dragonfly53 I can & I will succeed!!!


Good entry. Wish you all the best of luck in achieving your goals.

PepperyJasmine is trying to keep it together.

japanese saying

there is a japanese saying, “it’s better to take a small step forward, then a giant leap and fall backwards”

just do something small everyday and in a few months you’ll be amazed by the progress you’ve made!
