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.

Day 1...Not so bad!

I had headache throughout the day, but I am sure that is due to not having my large cup of coffee from McDonald’s and at least 3 Diet Cokes throughout the day. I did a lot of housework and didn’t feel dizzy or anything. No significant hunger pains, but tough watching my daughter chow down on pizza while I drank my dinner. I had to tell a white lie to a friend who was driving through that I couldn’t go out to eat because I wasn’t feeling too well. I just don’t want to tell a lot of people that I’m doing this. I guess I want to wait to make sure that I am able to finish it and according to my daughter, I definitely will! I felt the need to brush my teeth in the early afternoon as if I hadn’t brushed them all day…weird. Anyway, I hope you’re doing well and don’t give up! Time to fix the Smooth Move tea!

No maple syrup!

I am really mad…the GNC by my home does not have grade B maple syrup! I went home and called around to other health food stores, but they were closed already! (I don’t have any Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s near me!) I was really in the mindset to begin today. I found a store that carries it and hope to pick it up during lunch. I hope your day is going better. Quick question…are you supposed to take the Senna tea the night before you begin? I have ordered the book but it hasn’t arrived yet. Let me know and good cleansing!

stop wasting time
It would help if I would get off this damn computer!

I believe in writing down goals in order to make things happen…but, c’mon, I feel like I need to go do sumthin’! So, I’m gonna stop wasting my time and yours, because if you’re reading this, you’re wasting time too! GO DO SOMETHING, DAMMIT! Love ya like a play cousin!
