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.

I am really struggling with this goal. I Need to re focus and work harder. But it feels like swimming upstream, and it should feel like swimming downstream. when I was younger (high school, university, then first five years working) it was much easier. I am not sure if it is the demands of my job, my body getting older, or what. I am getting to the point where I want to check this goal off as completed or just give up.
I have fucking had it. I am going to get my 12 things done.
I could be slipping due to chatting.
I slipped for a week due to too many meetings but now I am back on topy.
I am starting to always pick stuff up and put them away.
I guess evening out my mood swings would help.
I guess it would help her a lot if I was to be less argumentative.
I find her cell phone and charge it every night for her, same with the cordless phone. I load the dishwasher every night and empty it every morning as a habit now.
