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.

make a burger

I was watching the Travel Channel and this chef made burgers on there with cucumber relish, 5spice and onion rings. Today I decided to try it. I didn’t have the exact recipe but remembered most of the ingredients and steps and in the end it was all worth it. The taste was amazing, it was really juicy and gorgeous. I felt proud of myself and whoever tried them, loved them. I am just worried they are going to ask me to cook more.

lose weight and keep it off

ok Latest BMI index states I am freaking obese. I used to be mildly overweight. My bones are heavy okay. Anyway I do have a good image of my own body and personally dont care but for the sake of health and in the name of fitness I will try and do this goal. I am going to start off with lots of green tea and some herbal concoctions every morning. Lets hope I get healthy soon.

appreciate my parents

I love my parents especially my mum but lately I have noticed I tend to be really short tempered around her, finding faults and losing it even though I know whatever she does, she has my best interests at heart and truly loves me. So I am going to try and show my appreciation by taking her out to restaurants and maybe for a movie sometime. And just spend quality time with her.

Fall in love

Its really difficult and when you dont have it, you realise how much you want to share your life with a special someone. But of course that doesn’t mean just settling for the next person who happens to come along…. I prefer to stay single than be with the wrong person.
