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.

Say Goodbye to 43 Things.
So sad.

I just learned of this today. I’m so sorry to see this site go. Now I realize I had a little place in my heart for 43Things. I met wonderful people here, and it helped me accomplish fine things. Now I’m writing words that will vanish into the ether of the web. It’s a little death, isn’t it? Good-bye, old friends. 43Things has joined what the Romans used to call the majority. Farewell.

lose 20 lbs

I’ve written about this in another entry. In 90 days with Tony Horton’s P90X program from Beachbody, I lost 20 lbs, reduced my body fat by more than half, improved my strength and endurance, and became even more good-looking! Try it. It’s hard, very hard, but it works.

Ran the Color Run

I wrote about how I ran The Color Run under my goal, “Run a 5K.” This is how I prepared for it. Highly recommended.
