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.

iamevoxus in England is doing 41 things including…

The ability to read awoke inside me some long dormant craving to be mentally alive - read and finish my 2nd book for september 2011


iamevoxus has written 2 entries about this goal

i am

halfway through the book. i like that it is straightforeward and easy to read and he doesnt mince the facts. he tells it like it is.

i am digesting this information, and looking at ciggarettes a little bit differently. beginning to understand my addiction.

i still ahve doubts that i can quit once i have finished the book, but i think this is a normal thing for any smoker trying to quit.

i havent quit smoking yet, as he even encourages us to smoke whilst reading it. i will be officially quiting once i have finished the book. i am feeling a bit stronger, and a bit more empowered with new knowledge as to why i have failed quiting smoking so far. i really hope i can do this in the next few days/week when i finish the book. and that i will find it easy and not difficult.

2nd book

for this month, which i will be starting today is not a fictional book.

it is allen carrs “easyway to quit smoking”. i have heard rave reveiws about this book, and it is also endorsed by a number of famous people who quit using it. i also personally know of 2 people who quit through this book.

it works on eliminating the fear and psychological dependancy that takes hold of smokers when they attempt to quit smoking, so that the goal becomes acheivable and u actually have a fighting chance of quiting. all this using allen carrs unique methods.

so im gonna give it ago. ive had a look through the book and it looks interesting and like it has a unique perspective, and is not full of BS or scare tactics.

ive quit smoking numorous times in the past for months even a year and then for whatever reason started again. however this time round, i am struggling to quit on my own whereas before i jsut quit cold turkey. so im hoping this book will help me to get there. the other thing it offers is that once his method/technique is understood and mastered, it will also help u to stay a non smoker for life and that you would never feel tempted by the need for a ciggarette, 1 month, 6 months, 2 years or 5 years and so on, down the line.

so yeah gonna give this book ago. and then apply what im reading to my life, and see what happens.

wish me luck!


I want to:
