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.

don't touch my cell phone for 8 hrs per day

This one is very hard to do. I’m so connected in my online life due to living in a different state than my family. while picking up a phone and writing letters are easy, using SMS, Facebook and G+ is even more convenient. This is a technology driven society that we live in today. How can one not be “wired”....

Weigh 150lbs or less
210lbs to 135lbs

After dealing with a miscarriage in 2011, I gained a lot of weight. Yet I was determined to work on getting the weight off. I figured out what I needed to do and stay consistent and patient. Now one year and a few months later the weight came off plus extra… I haven’t been 130lbs anything in 15 years. :-D
