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.

oh dear

not much progress on this one .. haven’t been going for my morning walks (went three times altogether this year) oh well .. have been sick .. still, shan’t lose hope .. and do walk more often up and down the road, and try never to take the lift, always the stairs.

but this goal needs more work .. only not just now . it’s TOO COLD.

am sick in bed

so no exercising the past few days. But have been trying to do a few stretching exercises cos this flu bug gives me horrid body ache.

Christmas Day

did more stretches this morning, and walked to my parents’ and back several times today. Phew! That’s plenty.

Day 2

Did some half-hearted stretches this morning. I hope that counts. Plan to walk down the road to mum and dad’s for lunch. Hope that counts too. I figure something is better than nothing.


I hate exercising. At least, today I do. I’m planning to start some stretching exercises though. I like stretches cos I can do them lying down in bed LOL

I need to walk too .. sigh .. that’s about all the exercise I’m open to these days. Maybe in summer I’ll find a pool (no heated pools in this city, I’m pretty sure).
