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.

Be in a healthy relationship
So far, so good!

Been with my current boyfriend a couple of months now, and we both have our issues, so it’s not always easy! We’ve so far been very good at communicating and treating each other in a respectful, loving manner,so despite little challenges here and there it’s going very well! We’re both working to make sure the relationship doesn’t become co-dependant; and we’re both quick to apologise for things and yet to get close to having an argument. This feels like a very different relationship to any I’ve had before, I hope it continues like this!

New purchase!

Got myself a lovely meditation cushion which I hope will help my motivation. Also made a good playlist for meditation on youtube which helps me settle into practice with the sound of a bell.

I’ve started going to classes which is really helping intergrate meditation into my week. Hopefully as it gets easier to practice I’ll find it easier making time for it.

keep fit
On this hype!

Been running everyday since Sunday and I’ve been to yoga, slowly feeling my fitness return, long may the motivation last!!

Stop searching for validation and feel enough

Just forced myself to send a text that made me feel a bit sick to a man I’ve been dating and really like. I would have hated myself if I hadn’t said anything though so I’m glad I sent it. I don’t need him to validate me at the end of the day. Progress!
