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.

Not set too many goals for myself (read all 2 entries…)

Its tough, I had too many goals listed here so I took a few off to start. This goal has a lot to do with staying focused and completing goals that I’ve already created. So considering that I’ve already completed one or two of my previous goals and am working on some of the others I think I’ve done a fairly good job of staying on task. I bought a planner the other day and I still haven’t gotten into the habbit of keeping track of everything and I find myself wanting to put that off. Looks like I may need to add another goal to my list.

stay in shape

I currently weigh 201lbs. I’m about 6’ tall. I’m “husky” if anything, not exactly hugely overweight, but its more than I’ve ever been.

So, I’ve started going to the gym on a semi regular basis – Every other day sometimes a 2 day break. What inevitably happens on my days off/in between I end up going out to eat and drinking.

I think i need to start either eating less or just eating healthier. Either way I’ll be miserable. I plan on eating breakfast because it is supposed to keep your metabolism active earlier in the day. Drinking less will have to be tied into this plan too because drinking actually slows the metabolism. Its going to be a long haul.

Not set too many goals for myself (read all 2 entries…)

I stretch myself too thin, i take on what i know i can’t handle or maybe I can handle it if I were better organized. I’d like to stop doing that. I worry that even sitting here now writing about each goal i aim to accomplish is taking up time i could be spending elsewhere.
