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.

Great Book Recommendation

Bill Phillips – Body for life was recommended to me by my personal trainer. There’s a lot about people doing it for the competition, but what I do like about his approach is:
Don’t do it to get in shape – Do it to change your life.
This is so true – success in one part of your life will make you successful in many other areas.
Ok, I’m inspired .. and its going great. and eating all the time is great :D but I miss junk food sometimes

zero progress here

well, its coming up to xmas …
and I definitely don’t want to miss out on all the jolly making…
I think this will be a new year goal when I am tired of partying, boozing and general cavorting … anyway its too cold to get that skinny just yet :p

very tough..

I hate exercise…
I used to be a commando.. Did 6-10 hours a day running with a rucksack full of rocks training for about 5 years.
Now, 1 good lung, broken hip about 20x, dislocated collarbone, operations on both knees, ...
It sometimes just hurts too much to exercise

I need to find new ways to make it fun.
