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.

eat healthier (read all 4 entries…)
2 steps forward, 1 step back

I know what is healthy. If I did not eat out with friends and family as part of being a normal social person, I would fare even better. Excuses, excuses. Need to start making the right choices, not the easy ones…

Become a vegetarian (read all 3 entries…)
Maybe not....

On some level I want to do this because I love animals. Reading up on animals raised for food…..about their life, how they are treated, what the companies do to make a buck, turns my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts and have given up most diary, but over the past year have increased my intake of fish alot.

I don’t know that I am commited enough to do this. Perhaps with much change in other areas of my life, this is just not a high enough priority.

I would like to know what others think. How do you get along in the world of meat eaters?

exercise regularly (read all 3 entries…)
This is a never ending goal....

That is not a bad thing. I used to hate to do anything that made me sweat. Once you get past that and embrace the fact that you may have to get hot and sweaty, it is all good. Trust me if you can start with just a little and work your way up to at least 2-3 times a week, it is SO worth it. You feel so much better. Thing is, you don’t need a fancy gym or equipment. Walk around the block, at the mall, do yard work, even housework at a good pace works up a sweat. Just get moving!!!!!! You will feel great.
