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 know

I will succeed amazingly at this when “I” choose to stop.. not because someone else is telling me to

ok.. changing this goal..

AGAIN. I have made the choice to just stop period…

been three weeks

can’t say it’s been difficult, I hope as a result I have lost some weight:)

Last night

at work the boss came in and offered us all a drink at the end of the night- the other girls had a vodka or a kahlua (or both) and I declined:) Was interesting that I didn’t try to find an excuse to have one.. but I didn’t really feel like one:)

Last night

My eldest daughter and her guy came over to Jam for a while.
Dare played the drums, Ernst played Bass and sometimes guitar and Tasia and I sang. Everyone was drinking but me, and ya know what? it didn’t bother me. I honestly thought it might- but it didn’t:)
I think I have discovered that my problem with alcohol (if there indeed is a problem) is that once I start – I don’t like to stop until I am done. Period. Whether it is one glass cause I am out for lunch with a friend or it is a bottle and a half cause I am in front of the fire pit and I just haven’t reached the state of “holy crap I can’t drink anymore and I’m done”. I dunno- trying to figure it all out- it’s kinda been an interesting experience to look at my habits and explore them more closely;)

So far so good!

Been a week now, and I did suck a good job of it last time that I haven’t really been in the mood to have a glass of wine… lol
6 more weeks till Yule:) and if we take Sorcha to the bar for her 18th BD next week I get to be the DD! Dare usually does, so this time I can let him take the night off and cut loose with a beer and his girls at the pub:)


43things needs a FAIL tab;) lol
ok.. gonna adjust this goal to make it read no drinking till Yule!


well this is a bust again…
I went three weeks no drinking. Then Dare and I went on a road trip. We were staying at a 4-5 star resort in the mountains that was just beautiful and I had a blue rare steak (really yummy) so I had wine with supper.
Then a week later it was my birthday and I had wine…

ya know.. I don't

seem to need to drink- or even miss drinking. I definately like it- and I find when I do it I just like to do a good job…lol If it’s not around I don’t even think about it. Interesting

7 days

don’t miss it. We’ll see how it goes till the next BBQ:)

NorthernSkye has gotten 44 cheers on this goal.
