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.

stop biting my nails (read all 2 entries…)

I feel so awesome~ Summer has decreased my stress levels so i’m working on killing all my bad habits!! Hopefully I can keep this up. But my nails are looking good so far!!

stop biting my nails (read all 2 entries…)

I realized how much I bite my nails today. Everytime I felt stressed (which happened alot today) I went for my nails. While I didn’t actually bite my nails, its really hard to not when my body really wants me to. I should probably try and replace this bad habit with a better one, maybe it will reverse my need to bite my nails. Well, i’m going to start school again tomorrow, so i’m waking up at 6 am, thats probably going to be hard on this goal, because of the stress. But on the bright side, maybe my, wake up when my alarm clock goes off goal can be accomplished tomorrow, wish me luck guys! (and girls)
