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.

Perhaps I should stop putting this off

I ran for the bus today since I knew I would have made a friend wait for me if I missed it. It had already gone away from the stop I was approaching, so I turned around and ran around the back of some houses, down a lane, through a car park and accross a road to just meet it three stops down.

This was just over 400 yards, and I was knackerd. I was sweating and I barely had breath to ask for my ticket. It took me the whole journey to stop sweating and to get my breath back. Just over 10 minuets I’d say it was. 10 minuets to catch my breath!

To add insult to injury my legs have been stiff most of the day now because of this.

This really made me see how bad my fitness is, even if my current diet is able to keep my weight at a reasonable level. I NEED to change this.


The Journey to Change

begins with a single sprint for the bus…good luck with your journey…with the right pair of trainers, running is quite fun!

Yeah, my mentaily of this sure has changed now, even if I do hate running more than I did before. I’m more of a cycling person, so that’s what I’ll be starting.

But I’m off to go start a job next week, so I’ll have to see what facilites I’ll have there since I’ll be away from home. At least it’ll stop more from making the excusse that I might bump into someone I know.
