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.

Bye, Bye Sugar...

I figure one of the first things I am going to tackle in order to meet this goal is unfriend my sugary friends. :(

This will be extremely difficult, seeing as how we’ve been super close these last 30+ years! Sugar and all it’s aliases have been a constant in my life for so long that I just can’t imagine how I will survive without it!!! How do you say goodbye to something so delicious and scrumptious??!! I know it’s bad and I know it’s monopolizing my health, but I LOVE it so VERY MUCH!

It will take tremendous willpower, strength, and dedication to stay away from it. I seriously do not know if I will have the right amount of these components to get me through it; especially when it’s everywhere….at every corner, in every pastry and almost every drink! It’s sneaky and it’s aliases are so deceptive which means that if I am going to achieve this goal, I must be very alert and careful with my food and drink consumption.

Good luck to me, for I will need it, very much so!!!
