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.

read 20 books in 2013
1) Looking for Alaska by John Green

I’ve wanted to read this book for a long time, and I’m so glad that I did! Such an amazing book. Truly amazing. I was truly engrossed by it and I can’t get it off my mind. It is a life-changing book and it made me really stop and think about things. Wonderful novel.

Have a front and back walkover
Working hard.

I went to gymnastics on Thursday with my friends, to try to help with my tumbling. It was helpful and the equipment there is very useful. I just need to get my walkovers, especially my back walkover, by April. It seems out of reach now, but I know if I can stay focused and determined, anything is possible.

Looking for Alaska by John Green

The first book I’ve read this year, and my goodness, it was amazing!! I’ve never been so changed by a book. I can’t seem to get it off of my mind, and it is a wonderful novel about relationships with people and finding out who people really are. I could definitely read it again!

Progress :-)

Haven’t bitten in about a week! I’ve realised WHY I bite them, making it much easier to stop!:-)

Look after my dog (read all 5 entries…)
I want him to be healthy!

I love my dog so so much, and I would love to make him lose weight and be happy. He needs walking at least twice a day, regardless of the weather, and not to be overfed. Just plenty of walks and happiness!

Be a good sister (read all 4 entries…)
I think I'm slowly getting better.

I don’t have a perfect relationship with my brothers, not at all, but I am trying to be better. I need to not get angry with them and understand that they do care about me, like I care about them.

walk my dogs more often (read all 12 entries…)
Could be doing better!

I walk Doug occasionally, but not everyday, and I REALLY need to! The weather should be no excuse – He deserves a nice walk and he needs the exercise! I love him so much <3

Do my chores (read all 15 entries…)
Could be doing more!

I’m ironing more often now, and I try to pick up a bit more around the house, especially in my room, but I could be doing much more! There’s always something to do.

have more patience (read all 10 entries…)
Need to think before I speak.

Especially with my family, I need to be more patient. I need to stop shouting or getting angry straight away. I just need to be calm, relaxed and chill out! I’m such a stressy person lol, I need to stop worrying and just have more patience with them, because I do love them so much! :)

Get into good habits!

Just try to get into the habit of turning off lights when leaving a room, or shutting the doors to keep the heat in. :)

pray more (read all 17 entries…)

I’m praying every night, but still not as much as I’d like! I think the night time is a good time to pray, because you can talk to God about the day as a whole, and truly reflect on the day. I would still like to pray in the morning sometimes, to help set me up for the day. It’s a lovely feeling to pray and know that the Lord is listening!

Back into bad habits!

I’ve gotten back into the bad habit of coming online as soon as I get home. I need to have a snack, drink and then do my homework and all my work straight away, even if I don’t feel like doing it. It will make SUCH a huge difference, and help to keep me on track for this busy year ahead. :)

be healthy (read all 32 entries…)

Haven’t really focused on this goal since going back to school. I’m not incredibly unhealthy, but I just overeat. I need to eat slower and try more healthy options. I’d like to actually start cooking my own food, because then I know exactly what I’m eating and I’ll be more focused on what’s going into my mouth instead of just stuffing it in!

stop biting my nails (read all 82 entries…)
Doing okay.

I could be doing better with this goal! I don’t bite often, but when I do, it really ruins my nails.

Conjoined twins.

There are two twin girls who are conjoined, and they have to share the same reproductive system! Crazy! I can’t imagine how hard their lives must be. They are so brave. <3 God bless them.

Do my homework as soon as I get it (read all 3 entries…)

Struggling with this. I need to remind myself how much better it feels to just get the homework out of the way! Now I have an essay to write last minute.

Nail Varnish :)

Wearing nail varnish has really helped me to combat this. I just seem to forget about my nails when I wear it, and I don’t want to ruin them. However, when I take it off, say for just a day, my nails become ruined and sometimes bitten or split. :( I think I need to protect my nails more when wearing varnish so they stay stronger. :)

Do my chores (read all 15 entries…)

I do all the chores that I’m asked to do for that day, with no hassle. However, I now need to go out of the ‘list’ a bit and start doing things without being asked.

Worry less. (read all 5 entries…)
Getting better. :)

I think I’m improving on this, unknowingly. I just seem to be a less worried person. Certainly less worried about what people think or of people’s opinions. However, I do still stress out over small things, such as trying to find something that I’ve lost, or trying to juggle several things at once. I just need to relax more. And you know what they say about worrying?
