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.

run a 5K in less than 31 minutes
Sitting at 35...

I have been doing pretty well with my running. I am currently sitting at 35-36 minutes, which for someone who is not naturally a runner, by my standards is pretty good. If I could get my time down it would be a great motivator to increase my distances, I would like to (long term) run longer distances.

Loving yourself...

I think before I make a decision I love someone else I need to love myself. Right at this point in time I have not been doing this. I am going to start…soon

No progress, in all honesty.

I have started running this year and it has been going amazingly well. I am beginning to enjoy it and I feel great after it. It helps me start the day well. I am still at 96kg…but I feel I have lost a bit of weight in my tummy and hips :)

The best part about this goal is I am committed I just need to get to work on the excution.
