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.

to lose weight
how did it happen?

i saw a picture of me that was taken the other day, and i look like i’m with child! i can assure all of you, i am not pregnant right now! i’m unsure how i let myself get SO big. i did SO well over last summer by cutting my food intake by half and went walking everyday. but some how i gained it back. i’m back up to 225lbs. i would LOVE to get down to 175lbs by 9.24.11.

here’s how we’re going to get this done;

1. count calories 1400/day
2. cut down on food intake
3. go walking every other day
4. weight myself every other friday
5. log on here and write about my feelings every other day

i’m hoping by keeping these goals in mind, i’ll be able to get down to my ideal weight for my wedding day.

visit every MLB stadium
done almost half!

i’ve been on this quest for about four years now!

so far;

Old Yankees Stadium, twice
Shea (Met’s, twice)
Camden Yards O’s
Red Sox
the Ballpark at Arlington (Rangers)
Minute Maid Park (Astros)
San Fran Giants
Oakland A’s
San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles Angels
AZ Diamond Backs

can’t wait to finish the rest on this MLB list!

finish college
it's about time...

i’ve been working full-time for years now, and i never went to college out of high school. looking back at my life i wish someone would have told my younger self that i should have applied myself more in high school and went to college! but since i didn’t, now i’m trying to be a student all over again. on some days i’m not very good at it, but my goal is to do my homework every other day, do the daily reading, show up to class every week, and pass all my classes.


I want to:
