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.

I don’t eat in bed anymore really, but I still eat in my room, which is just as bad and lazy. I only really do it when I watch television, but I don’t like crumbs and messiness in my rooms.


I don’t feel guilty when I’m doing it, but when I wake up and see the evidence on the floor, I feel really bad.

Mann I Frickin Suck!

I seriouslly need to stop this. The only way that will make me stop is if I find a mouse or something in my room….I have to stop before it gets to that!


This goal kinda…creeps me out. I duno why, but maybe it’s the things I eat in bed. Chocolate, yoghurt, smoothies. I mean…can you say WTF?


Last night I ate about 3 bars of chocolate in bed. Boohoo!:(


Usually on Fridays I stay up late on the laptop, the TV really loud, and eat tons of chocolate in bed. This usually happens from around 10.00-0.00am. Yeah, I love eating bed, but it’s gotta stop!
