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.

use less splenda
This is unnacceptable!

I have been using an average of EIGHT packets a day! So unhealthy! I discovered splenda in september after two years of depriving myself of any sugar and now I’ve gone to the extreme with splenda!! I’m gonna cut my consumption in half!

Lose 7 pounds

I weigh 120 and am 5’8, but am normally 113 exactly. Junior year has just been so crazy that I can’t always squeeze in a 90 minute walk PLUS toning. I have only been exercising for 1 hr and toning every other day… so I know exactly how I gained the weight! Luckily, I never gain any more than this and I do fluctuate depending on my stress level. As long as I continue with healthy foods (with I have always eaten,) I won’t worry too much. I’d just prefer being 113.
We can do this, guys!

Travel to Greece

I also started a savings account and plan to go the senior year after high school (next summer). I have distant family there who desperately want to meet me. I feel so strongly connected to the country (it’s a big portion of my ancestry) even though I’ve never been.
