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.

day 1 without soda

felt fine throughout the day.. just hydrated with water. i find i am able to tolerate the hot weather without drinking any of the stuff, although i did fall asleep. which is fine since i am on vacation.

got addicted to soda

I got addicted to soda during my clerkship year in medical school. At first it was just the McFloats I bought regularly during the nights I was on duty. Then I moved on to buying (and consuming) 1 liter bottles of Lipton sparkling iced tea (since they were on sale in the supermarket near the hospital). Then I moved on to buying (and consuming) 2 liter bottles of Coke. I tried getting off the habit last March. Didn’t work. I can’t stay awake without the stuff.

I’ve finally graduated.. moving on to internship in May. I don’t know if I can quit cold turkey by then. Hopefully..


I want to:
