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.

Improve my financial Credit Score and Report (read all 2 entries…)
6 more months?!?!

Well, I mustered up the courage to take control of my debts. I’m sooo irritated that I have almost nothing for myself but I guess I can stand some suffering now to be able to enjoy my HARD earned money later on…UNFAIR!

be punctual (read all 3 entries…)

I’m glad to say that I have been on time to work everyday for the past 2 weeks. But I broke the habit 2 days ago because I’ve been sooo damn tired. However, I will keep trying. Setting my clock a half an hour ahead of time does help.

Drink 8 glasses of water,

I’m not sure why but i drink at the most 4 glasses of any liquid a day. I just have no deisire to drink. i do know that i need to flush out whatevers floatin around in my body some days i have no energy at all, possibly dehydration also weight gain. i don’t like the lack of taste in water. the flavored brands are ok but they seem to fill me so quickly. any suggestions for drinking more water?
