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 procrastinating
here I go!

Ok I’ve just completed my 30 day challenge of no tv so I feel compelled to defeat procrastination. How will I conquer procrastination? to be the opposite of a procrastinator, to be proactive. I’m going to make a schedule for myself for every day of the week, setting study time first, and make leisure time last. I will stick to this strict schedule for 30 days and by then it will be second nature to get things done!

give up sugar (read all 3 entries…)
day 22

Almost done with my 30 day challenge and I’m thinking of making this a year long challenge! I will let you know when I get there. Haven’t had sugar, chips, junk food period. I still drink crystal light though, and I’m considering ending that consumption since its fake sugar and its probably no good.

Stop watching TV (read all 3 entries…)
I did it!

I read somewhere it takes 30 days to really form a new habit, or get rid of an old one! So its been 30 days non-tv-consumption! I was so proud of myself that I bought a new pair of running shoes! Yah! By the way this accomplishment was totally worth it in the end, and now I will continue my tvless life however now and again i will watch movies with the fam :)
