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.

Ass goal: Stay real in 2012 (read all 8 entries…)
Sometimes reality sucks

My heel hurts worse than it ever has and the pain is different. It must be the actual spur, rather than just the fascia because it is a sharp pain. It even hurts just sitting.

Also, I finally. Got rid of my van. I bought an older Toyota but with fewer miles. The van needed some work and even if I did everything, I’d still be in a van. So I opted for a vehicle I could easily afford and just hope it is in as good shape as it appears.

Gosh I feel old.


Adar What?

The heel thing....

I have discovered that a lot of the thing I THOUGHT were my knees and feet were actually a form of sciatica, and the real problem was in my lower back and hip.

Just a thought.

For better or worse,

It’s my feet. I’ve seen the x-rays. I’ve grown a hook inside my heel. No doubt my back and hips are old as well, abut this is a well-diagnosed, localized problem.

I want to:
