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.

drink less Diet Coke
Untitled

I think I’m such a creature of habit and I realise how much of addictive personality I have. I have many vices, Coke and chocolate my top two if we’re talking about food/drink. I used to drink a lot of original Coke and the folks got upset by it, they couldn’t take me off Coke completely though and compromised by replacing with Diet Coke. It’s still bad though.

It’s odd though, I used to have this thing at night where I’d sit back enjoy chocolate, Coke, couple smokes. I can kick everything easily but the Coke though. (well chocolate’s hard)



make more male friends
Untitled

Truth universally aknowledged that males and females are different apart from the physical. Males would be different friends from females of course, less bitching, I would say. I’d like that. Some guys to hang out with and have a beer.



make a real friend who shares my interests
Untitled

My friends at the moment are crazy and think they can have a life just like Carrie on Sex and the City and as glamourous as that life would be, they are so naive about reality. They don’t share any of my interests they just care about money and boys and it’s such a drag. I wish I knew someone GENUINE.
