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.

Finishing Module 5

I am currently working on my fifth module for my master’s. I can’t believe I have made it this far. It has been really hard this year. I am really burnt out from my studies. I am learning a lot and I am changing as a teacher and materials developer. So it is definitely worth it!

Have a completely wearable wardrobe (read all 2 entries…)

I am on my way to creating a fully functional wardrobe! I have been throwing out the old and replacing them with something I love. It makes a difference to not have to stress about what to wear in the morning. I don’t a lot of clothes or expensive ones. I just want feel comfortable with the ones I have.

Drinking only water

I’ve always struggled with drinking water. I just didn’t like it even though I knew it was extremely good for me. So I finally took some steps to get myself and my family to drink more water…only drink water. So simple but it really worked. I stopped buying juice or any other kinds of drinks. Another thing that helped was adding lemon or fresh mint. I’ve noticed a big difference in my health and I have had fewer migraines which were probably caused by dehydration. However, I’m still drinking coffee. I don’t think I can stop doing that!
