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.

get over my ex (read all 9 entries…)

Well, i’ve done 38 days of no contact and am defintely better (I even went out on a date..), the thing that really bothers me know his how to get him out of my head, to stop the thoughts about him. I’ve tried telling my mind NO! don’t think about him, but it’s always comfertable to play with your mind and dream that he did call, he does care and it all ends happily ever after. I just really want to find a way to supress these thoughts…:(

Lose 20 pounds (read all 4 entries…)

I am 35 percent fat. I am 35 percent fat. I went to a dietician and she told me that I am 35 percent fat. More than a third of me is fat. I have to start taking this more seriously and start watching my weight. She said I need to reach 22 percent fat and that would mean losing 20 pounds….

get over my ex (read all 9 entries…)

I kind of have the same deal, my Ex and I have a mutual group, the things is that all of my friends know that it’s really hard for me to be around him, so whenever they do stuff with him= I don’t go, and same vise versa, it’s a bit annoying, but they’re my friends and they understand. If it really makes you so uncomfertable- leave when he comes, or ask your friends to maybe go out with him.
Whatever happens, they’re your friens too- he has no right to make you feel uncomfertable around them.
Good Luck!Tell us how it goes
