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.

This is

proving a little difficult at the moment as I have permanent lower back pain which is causing my left leg to go numb sometimes; apparently they reckon I have a compressed nerve somewhere, so my trip to the hospital will be interesting. Practising correcting feels so un-natural despite it being better for me to stand/sit straighter and now the situation is being compounded by this nonsense but I just view this little setback as a deviant nerve who is trying to mess up the game plan but I don’t intend to let this break my stride.

X Ray

Not good, saw the x-ray today, a slight curve in my spine but it was enough to make me really want to achieve this goal. A friend suggested buying a book on back care, will have to take a trip to the book store to find a good one, a daunting task as it may offset my other goal but this is for my health.
