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.

3 weeks! I'm set :)

I’m happy with my progress and I feel great! Keep drinking [water] and don’t quit!!


One week...

Well with the exception of juice, milk or lemonade I have only had water for a week straight. Well okay I had two beers this weekend…but as for “snack drinks” like pop and coffee…no more. I did this once before and I cut caffeine out almost completely so cutting out pop (mostly sprite and mt. dew) wasn’t too tough. I am drinking a ton more water and I find myself asking for water when I am at home and when I go out to eat.

Two tips:
1) one, if you find yourself hungry for a snack…try drinking water. Most of the time your body is thirsty not hungry. After a glass of water you might find that you are not hungry at all.
2) two, (potty talk! haha) the Zen monks talked about how important water was to diet and the regular use of the bathroom [pee people…pee] because it helped rid the body of impurities. They strived for a “pale yellow” color all the time. I read almost the same thing in a health magazine recently.

keep up the work!!

working it...

So far this week I have not had any pop and only substituted milk and juice for water a few times…I feel like a million bucks! :)
