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.

I haven't REALLY done this

But I didn’t want to click the ‘I give up’ button, because I haven’t!

This is just way to broad for me – I have goals that break it down more (drinking more water, getting more exercise) and that’s better for me.

When you’re extremely overweight and have lots of health issues – looking at ‘Be fit and healthy’ on your list every day isn’t terribly inspirational! I just look at it and think, “Oh. Yes. THAT… well, maybe ONE day..”

So – away with it! I’ll stick to smaller, specific goals regarding health and fitness!

It all seems too hard...

I need to get my health problems under control – food intolerances, ovarian cysts, over stretched tendon in my knee. I need to lose heaps of weight and I’m extremely unfit.

Trouble is, I feel good and I’m happy… so it’s kind of hard at the moment to motivate myself. Which is silly. I should be able to really get into it all because I’m feeling so good!

I have been using my exercise bike more… but I’ve been eating sugar and gluten… big no-no’s for me!

Funny thing is, people keep asking me how much weight I’ve lost… so I must be doing something right! (Must be all the good lovin’ I’m getting..!! Hahaha!)


This is one of those goals that I know I have to do… but I’m so not the healthy athletic type!

My idea of a perfect Saturday arvo isn’t going for a bike ride/ hike/ game of tennis then having a salad at a nice Cafe…

My perfect Saturday arvo is sitting around a table of lots of yummy, decadent snacks and a few bottles of Omni Blue gossiping with my girlfriends…


Watching DVD’s snuggled up on the couch with my man and a block of chocolate


Having a beautiful 2 or 3 course meal at a beautiful restaurant…

So yeah, this is kinda challenging for me!! Hahaha!
