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.

drink tea every day

I’ve started to make the effort to prepare a mug of tea every morning before work. In the past I would occasionally have extra time to make tea, but lately I had been skipping it. Seems really ridiculous of me, looking back on it, because it is so simple. Boil water on the stove, pour it over a tea bag, wait 4 minutes… hardly any effort involved. Now I remember to prepare my tea before I make my breakfast or lunch, that way I pack it in my bag and it is ready for me at work.
So far it’s been 6 straight days drinking tea. My goal is to go an entire year having a cup of tea every morning. I figure that if I can go a whole year then I will be one step closer to a healthier lifestyle and will have the confidence to continue to make this effortless mug every morning.
