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.

I haven’t been working on this until rececntly. For me learning is best when it’s fun and fairly easy. I found a site (on a goal on here, actually) called Duolingo which I’ve started using and it’s great.
Got a game after I joined called “Evoland”, and have been playing it!
I went to a rum tasting event, it was interesting.
Since I started reading the book I’m supposed to be reading I haven’t read hardly any of it. I guess I just need to get into the habit of it (hadn’t read a book for quite a long time), especially reading before trying to sleep maybe. Have been reading some magazines recently though.
Just writing this here as a reminder to start reading it properly!
Played Dominoes in a pub last Saturday.
Also recently played “Sorry” (I won) and “Coppit” (I almost won).
Had a salad (from Subway) and some watermelon fruit packs.
This goal is obviously easier said than done!
Anyway; I read this article (it was right, I had put off reading it, but now I have read it). A lot of it makes sense.
Another thought I had regarding ‘stop procrastinating’, was… playing a video game I’ve been addicted to recently as a reward for getting something done.
This also seems useful. Now to implement what I’ve read!
Had a melon & grapes fruit pack, plus veg pizza and the other day different fruits in a pack (grapes, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries).
Today had an Innocent Super Smoothie “Antioxidant” (kiwi, lime, wheatgrass & flax seeds). Awhile ago I had an Innocent Super Smoothie “Defence” (mango, pumpkin, echinacea & flax seeds). Also the other day I had an Innocent Smoothie (Mangoes & Passion Fruits).
