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 to the gym 5 days a week
Shift it up a gear

Been going every other day since early January and want to start doing 2 days on 1 day off soon so it’ll be 4 or 5 days a week instead.

Thing is I don’t think it’ll be that hard really since I’m at the point now where on days when I don’t go to the gym I think maybe I should go to the gym tonight. Only thing is that it would be awkward as I would have to get home from work, pack my gym stuff and go about half way back to work to go there and probably wouldn’t get there will getting on for 7pm and the last bus home is at 8:25pm.

Might try it next week, bring my stuff into work for 2 on 1 off schedule instead.

go to the beach

Not got an excuse really, only 5 mins walk away. Just need to get some friends together and go for a wander down for some beach fun

move to another country (read all 2 entries…)

Moved from England to Greece (Crete to be exact) and was so worth it. Laid back atmosphere, cheaper to live, good weather (only worn shorts during the day so far). Do miss family and friends a bit but got dad coming over next month so got that to look forward to and I’m making new friends over here.

See all entries ...
