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.

I need to focus on this goal

I feel like I let things slip a lot and I havnt been making the effort to take care of myself in the ways that really matter. When I have time to myself I tend to watch T.V or read (which are not bad things) but I dont make time for the little personal grooming and care for my mind and body.

i have decided to draw up a weekly program to do the little things like paint my toenails and exfoliate and deep condition my hair and get back to basics like walking, drinking water, praying/meditating. Hopefully this will also help with my other weight loss goal and my resolution to dress nicely and make an effort. I will post it here and try to track my progress
