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.

So I attempted to cook rice today – absolute disaster. :(
I never knew cooking rice was so complicated! I put it in a pot, added water and then let it boil. When It looked good I tried tasting it, still hard. So I cooked it for longer, still hard. I put a lid on the pot and took it off every now and then and the rice turned into some weird mushy substance, while the bottom of the pot got a hard layer of ricer crust or something.. So yeah. No breakfast today! :(

So it turns out...

... that I’m underweight, by a whopping 20Kg! I knew I was skinny for my height and I wasn’t the healthiest bloke on the planet but 20Kg? Get out! I guess I’m going to have to start doing what normal people do and eat some food. I’ll keep this updated since that seems to help me stick to my goals. :)


I want to:
