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.

"Try to get through today without eating one unhealthy thing"

This had been my goal for every day, but it rarely ever happens.

This goal needs more work

I need to plan for my budget better. I have been sort of binging lately. I need to hold strong in the evenings.

Eat healthy: my progress so far

I was hungry, but held strong and did not touch anything at the reception.

But then came home, and overate…

Still fitting into my weekly budget though.


I have about 400 calories left for today, but I have only had 3 cups of water. Before having another meal, I will try my best to fill up on the other 5 cups of water I should have for today. Maybe it will fill me up and reduce the size of my dinner.


I pigged out without even going out today. :(

"Try to get through today without eating one unhealthy thing."

I think I did it. I had one teaspoon of sweet butter with my oatmeal before reading the post, and then everything was healthy. I still went a little over my daily calorie budget, but compensated those calories by walking.

"Try not to eat anything after 7pm today."

I am going to a birthday party tonight, so that won’t be possible. But I will try my best not to overeat there.


The last few days have been quite terrible with this aspect. I will try to improve it in the near future.


I want to:
