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.

do bikram yoga

I am going to join a 30 day trial tomorrow and go as many times as possible! Really looking forward to seeing what I can do with my body

Give up chocolate for Lent

I did this 2 years ago so I know I can do it again, but I really don’t want to….chocolate is my first love!!! The first time I gave it up I managed for the entire six weeks or however long it was. I started eating more crap in general- biscuits, bread, cake etc because I was replacing chocolate with it. In the end I realised I would put on a lot of weight if I kept going, so, instead of cutting down on what I was eating, I just exercised a lot more. I lost about 10 pounds in 6 weeks and it was all fat that I’d burnt off from running all the time. I am looking to do something similar to this and am going to join a Bikram yoga centre tomorrow in addition to my plans for running a few times a week! Fingers crossed it goes well and by April I will look a lot healthier!

control my jealousy

I’m jealous of other girls. My boyfriend’s exes mainly. Because they spent time with him, and he is the most important person to me- I just hate that other people have mattered to him as much as I do. I know it sounds silly and I know I am the person he loves and is with now, and he says all the time that he loves me and how much I am the best person for him, but I still get this irrational hatred of the fact that there were other people in my position, is this mad?
