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.

stop surfing gossip sites
i have no idea

and very very frustrated

i’ve been surfing hollywood gossip sites for the past year.
it gets my mind off things, especially after tough studies and work
i’m so happy i don’t have channel E at home
but this is truly baffeling
it helps me unwind, looking at nothing and bored people talking about basically – nothing
but i always feel tired, knowing i wasted my time
and have no idea why i am still interested at where these stars go, with whom and why
especially when it’s so important for me to stop gossiping in the outside world. i am quite addicted to it. can i stop for a week? what will i get in return? amazing how tough it is. why??

drink 8 glasses of water a day (read all 4 entries…)

i’ve been gone and have been very harsh on myself. the regular all-or-nothing plan. if i can’t do everything, every day, might as well just stop. i let myself go, these have been tough times. but i think the way to go for me is to stick to one or two, and try not every day, but as many times a week as possible. less is more. i’m back.

take omega-3 for 2 consecutive months (read all 3 entries…)
