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.

run a four minute mile

While I was in the US Army, I ran a mile in just over four minutes.

It only happened once and I have to admit, it was a rare feat.

So, after several car accidents and a medical separation from the Army, I am on a challenge.

I would love for anyone’s advice.

Find the Beauty in all people.
Is this possible?

Could I really find the beauty in all people? There are so many reasons to hate, despise or ignore people.

People make so many mistakes, back-stab and hurt others.

Is it possible to really appreciate people like Hitler, or serial killers?

Overcome fast food cravings.
When my cravings started.

When I was growing up, my dad would let me eat at a fast food restaurant two or three times a year.

Then joining the Army, I was eating out every week. After a few years, it became a habit.

After the Army, with me busy a lot and on the road, it is just so much easier to drive through, grab food, and eat it.

It finally turned into a craving.
