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.

go on a road trip across the U.S. (read all 6 entries…)
Not quite (or anywhere near) across the US

but next weekend I’m driving from NW Ohio down and around parts of Indiana, then up to Chicago by Monday night before making my way back home on Tuesday.



get out of debt
working on it...

I’m taking Dave Ramsey’s video class: Financial Peace University. There are some really good ideas on how to do thise in just a few years. It would help if I could work 10 more hours a week than I do, but I’m working with what I have and I’m beginning to make progress.



improve my fitness (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

walked 3-4 miles to the library a few days ago… my legs were sore but I felt really good. And I’ve been doing ‘weighted push-ups’… well, sort of. My three year old niece will sit on my pack and my one-year old nephew on my legs and I’ll do push-ups from my knees instead of my feet (but since they allowed that in gym in school, I say it counts). I do about 10 of those a day and I can feel my arms and chest muscles getting stronger. YAY!
