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.

Stop Picking At My Face (read all 6 entries…)
This time for good

I am tired of this. I feel motivated and good. I AM going to complete this goal soon. If I don’t pick for 8 weeks, I will consider it accomplished (because after 8 weeks I think the habit will be kicked)


hmmm….8 weeks from today: July 11th!!!

lose 15 pounds
Feeling Motivated :)

I have been really good for quite a while (a couple months) about working out almost every day. I have definitely toned up and lost some fat around my stomach, but I am still the same weight (about 142). I am really proud of myself and I feel motivated to keep going. I was to start to actually slim down and lose weight as well.
One thing that I feel will help a lot is to take it easy on my alcohol intake. Being that I’m in college it will be a bit hard, but nothing impossible. Also, I graduate on Wednesday and I have a three week break after that before I start working for the summer, so I’m thinking about doing two workouts a day, like swimming in the mornings and going to the gym in the afternoon. I’m a lifeguard and I have a free membership to the gym/pool at my work (which is about 5 min away from my house) so it’s not hard to get there.
My boyfriend and I are going to Europe in the fall, and I want to be absolutely gorgeous (because I think he might propose!!!)

More later, but I’m excited to go through this journey with all of you!

turn off the tv

I got rid of cable a few months ago and my boyfriend and I LOVE it! You all should try!

See all entries ...
