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.

Last week I saved like 40 bucks and did well for the most part. I kinda fell off the boat a bit this last weekend, we had a big company party, free booze, you know, headache the next morning and then some hair of the dog to recover. Overall I am happy with my effort, this next week I will try to improve just a bit more…day by day :)

yay for me

I am proud of myself, so far this week I have drank far less than usuall by this time. I have spent about 70% less money on beer this week and have taken two full nights off. I must keep strong as the weekend is approaching and just focus on football sunday as my beer drinkin time. If I could keep this pace up I will be really happy.

This must end

I must see this goal through. It’s getting real old fast. I am finding it so hard to do this. I have no self control and rationalize in my mind why it’s ok today to drink. I wake up almost every morning mad at myself but by afternoon I am ready for another go at it. I want to do this but it has been a part of my life since I was 16 and it’s hard to cut back. I don’t want to endanger my health anymore than I have. I have so many interests but they go by the wayside as I am usually drunk every night. I feel like a loser cause I can’t seem to get it together. I’m not drinking tonight mostly because my body feels like I have the flu from this last 2 week bender. This sucks.

Am I retarded?

I just don’t get it. How can you want to do something and just never do it? I want someone to kick me. This is lame I failed yet again.


Day 2 still doin good, for me that’s good OKAY :) Had cravings but drank a big ice cold glass of green tea and that seemed to curb my craving for something cold, the rest is history!

This is it!

Today I wrote out my goals for this for the next 4 weeks. I hope to stick with it the best I can and from there I can set new goals, wish me luck!

I need to do this!

Mainly for my health and secondly it’s costing me too much money. It’s my default if I have nothing to do, I’ll just drink all day, I can’t do this anymore it’s retarded.
