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.

Keep a detailed food diary for 7 straight days
simple math - calories in & calories out

I run a lot. I also sit a lot in front the computer and work. I eat quite a lot – probably somewhat more than a should.

That’s why a want to do an experiment and write down everything i eat for a full week and then decide what i would like to change about my diet.

strange thing this thing

strange thing this 43T website. I’ve missed it. I’ve kept on having my own list of objectives but somehow it isn’t the same as publishing my goals online for everyone to see and everyone to cheer and support.

i can not believe i’ve been offline for about 30 months… some goals i’ve proudly finished, some i had totally forgotten about and some are still very relevant!

but it’s time for a second chance – 43 things. I’m back!



MAKE 100 KIVA LOANS
Helping others to help themselves

I have currently made 87 kiva loans so I have 13 more to go to reach this goal.

The first Kiva loan I ever made was to a woman called Ana, who lives in Peru. The loan was funded on 18 February 2008 and was repaid in full 9 months late.

The description of the project touched my heart and it goes as follows:

Mrs. Ana, is a very hardworking woman that is always aware of the wishes of her family; many years of hard work and effort have allowed her and her husband to manage their own businesses and be able to finance the dreams of their children.

Ana wants to be able to keep her family together and at the same time has a deep sorrow knowing that her mother has pancreatic cancer. For this reason, she wants to take advantage of every moment to spend time with her mother and her family and wishes to forge ahead despite all the sad moments in her life that she won’t let defeat her. As part of her improvement projects, she wishes to increase her income through increasing her inventory of wood. To bring this to fruition, she asks for a loan so she can improve her dear mother’s quality of life if only for a few months. Support this woman of great valor and strength.
