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.

WHAT can I do in a month? (healthily)

I guess I will see. Ill be posting regularly once again. Tracking my weight as it goes and my eating habits and ups and downs. =]

Things have been going better. Havent weighed myself.
Im going on a road trip to CALI and Ive decided I wont weigh myself again until I get back.

go to college
I can mark this as done!!!

So today I financially cleared and turned in all my medical and housing information. Ive registered for all my fall classes. Im ready to go =]

I dont want to jinx this but I WILL be doing this! I knew I would but ive now passed the hard part. Paying for a private college was definately something I thought about alot.

Hey =]

Its been a LONG LONG time since ive posted or visited.
Just wondering if anyone here is 17 and around 5’3. Send a message or comment. =]

I realized what I was doing wrong. We tend to get impatient with this goal and do alot of things that jeopardize us in the long run that set us back. Thats what happened to me. Im starting college in the fall and so Id like to take advantage of the freedom of home cooking (although school wont be too far).

See all entries ...
