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.

find at least one thing each day that makes me happy and record it everyday for a year
18 april

Ok, this has been a goal for like 3 years and I’ve not made an entry!
So..for yesterday:

18th April

  • completed my workout for the week, giving me a weekend to relax
  • spending time with family in the evening when everyone is finished at work


get over my ex (read all 6 entries…)
Untitled

I realised at some point that my unhappiness was about myself, and that focusing on the breakup thing was more of an excuse, a distraction..



spend less time on facebook (read all 10 entries…)
Nearly...

I was intending on going a whole 24 hours without Facebook, but my friend messaged me on there, so I ended up staying logged on to fb for nearly 4 hours – from 1am till 4.45am. On the plus side I didn’t spend any of my day time on FB or even the computer, up to that point. I felt better for it. I suppose even if I log in once every night for a few minutes, overall I would be cutting down a lot.
