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 more water (read all 3 entries…)
Getting there

This goal is almost ticked off my list. The last few weeks I’m drinking about 1.5L of water a day. Being such a good girl!!! :-D

It’s a good idea to buy a 1.5L bottle of water in the morning and decide that the bottle will be empty by the time you go to bed. After the first time you can just refill the bottle with water at home, as long as the bottle is full every morning and empty every night. I started with a 500ml bottle and worked myself up from there

become a morning person.
Soooo not there

I’m so NOT a morning person. I like going to bed late and sleeping in. I’m one of those people who would be perfectly happy to sleep 12 hours a day… but with responsibilities to take care of there’s no way I could actually do that. The end result of course is a very grumpy me when, at the very last second, I finally pull myself from bed and rush to get ready for work! Not a great way to start the day

Wouldn’t it be so much nicer to be fully awake and relaxed? I think so, so I’ll have to work on it

get married
One Day...

Not getting married anytime soon, want to have a stable life before then. So that means finish my studies, get my dream job, earn enough, be completely independent… that’s a good 10 years away… at least that gives me plenty of time to find Mr Right…

... oh who am I kidding I can’t wait that long! I’ll be 30 by then! Heck no, I’ll settle for being independent before walking down the isle.

Clearly there are two sides of me at war here. I want to be successful, organized and independent but I also want happiness and love and romance…

What’s a girl to do?
