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.

May Bootcamp 2012: Keep it Simple (read all 5 entries…)
Through May 8

I’ve tracked my food every day so far this month on MyFitness Pal. I think I’ve walked, ran, or ridden the exercise bike every day so far in May as well.

My body really likes the exercise…I now feel like I’m missing something if I don’t at least get out and walk 2 miles.


I admire this

I wish I could get the commitment together for what I want to do. There’s so much! I’m putting work first, but that’s because I’ve returned to a career I left 11 years ago and need to work up again and take care of requirements that have been imposed. Office work is not conducive to exercise like my old job was. Way to go, you! I hope to use your inspiration.

Thanks very much!

I agree, I’ve got a lot of things I want to accomplish as well. Getting your career backl in gear is definitely a big job!

Right now I’m focussing on my exercise and diet, and I’m pretty sure I will be successful at it this time. Hopefully after this year I won’t need any more weight-loss goals on my list!

I definitely agree that office work makes it tought to get enought exercise. I’m not working right now, so I’ve got lots of time for exercise, although I’m only actively exercising about an hour a day. I’m grateful to have the time for this!

an hour a day

It often sounds easy to do, doesn’t it? Just an hour a day. But some of those hours are hard to find. The days just fly by.
