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.

work out
Untitled

I started working out again 3 weeks ago. I’m so proud of myself. It is hard to do since during my free time I love to sleep. But I know I can make it a regular thing. I just have to have faith in me.

Right after my birthday in November I gave up pop and started drinking water like crazy. I swear I was doing so good till 3 weeks ago. I went back to drinking pop and water just disappeared out of my life. The only time I drink water is after I work out. I have to just try harder.

Ten pounds down..... YAY

give up red meat
I decided to give it up again

I went many years without eating red meat. I swear it wasn’t a big deal. It was really easy to do then. I can honestly say that I felt better and healthier. I know it’s only been a few days since I gave up red meat once again but just because I forbid myself to have I want it(It’s funny how the mind works). Anyway, I really think I will do good. I just have to stick to this and make sure I plan ahead what Im gonna eat so I don’t give in.
Wish me luck

6th day without pop

OMG I honestly didnt think it would be this hard to do. But I’m actually on my 6th day without touching pop. I’m very proud of myself. I really hope I can give it up without having to force myself.

Stop bitting my nails
I've been bitting them since I was two years old

GGGrrr.. Okay im like really girly and the only thing that bothers me like crazy is I cant stop bitting my nails. It’s been a week that I’ve kept my acrylic on but I keep picking on them. I cant wait till the days comes that I wont even put my fingers in my mouth. Gross. I don’t like watching people doing that so you would think that I wouldnt dare do it. WELL IM A DORK! Let’s hope I can improve this. Good luck to me and everyone else out there.



meditate on regular bases
Meditation heals your sould

I don’t have to leave ny house to meditate, just sitting somewhere peaceful at home without anyone bothering me. It reenergizes me. I use to do this more often. I have to get back in the habit of doing it everyday for atleast 15-20 minutes.



drink more water (read all 2 entries…)
Our body is made up of more than 70% Water

If we know this then why aren’t we all constantly drinking more water? For the past few days I’ve been drinking a lot of water. I have’t kept track of how many glasses, but I know as soon as my glass is empty I go and refill it. I love cold water, so to make me want to drink more I make sure to put Ice in my glass. It makes me want to chug down the glass.

I’m healthy now, but I want to look better. I want my thighs to be thin and my ass to shrink up(which I know for a fact my boyfriend would hate me for that) ...but at my age I have to start watching what I eat because I know in your 20’s your body goes to shit if you don’t take care of it.

I’m slowly working on making my self over. Several months ago I completely cut drugs out of my system. I couldn’t be more proud of myself because it was really hard to do. Since then I’ve also cut partying and drinking out too. I have joined charity services. Theres something about me that when I make someone else feel good it makes me feel good. So I want to do more of that.

Giving up alcohol

I recently gave up my drinking alcohol. I use to drink all the time. I was drinking almost everyday. And not just one or two drinks. If I was drinking I was drinking to get drunk. So I decided to cut down on my drinking habits two months ago or so and after that was going well I decided maybe I should just quit drinking all together. I can honestly say I feel better. Yes, at times it’s hard since a lot of my friends drink a lot. But in all honestly I don’t like how people get when they are drunk. I can only imagine how bad I use to get when I use to have my binges.
But I have a very supportive boyfriend who rarely drinks and is helping me out all the way. I cant wait to have alcohol completely out of my life. It has only brought me bad things. And since I’m such a happy-go-lucky person I don’t need that.
