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.

lose my mummy tummy (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I have kept up being good more or less, have signed up at a gym where I work out twice a week and make numerous other sacrifices but the mummy tummy remains. My dietician suggested trying to reduce carbs, not cut them out completely just reduce them drastically coz one thing i do love is rice and bread. Actually, that makes two things I really love. Anyway, I’m trying to implement that. It’s a much bigger sacrifice than I thought. I always thought I was a die-hard chocoholic and that that would be my downfall. I never suspected that reducing rice and bread would be so much harder than reducing chocolate.



Lose 10 kilos

I have finally signed up at a gym where I work out twice a week. The ambiance is great. The workout is killing but it actually works. You can really ‘feel the burn’. And I always end up working out with the same people so we are starting to provide moral support to each other. So that’s starting to work out really well



have great abs (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I figured I wouldn’t get very far on my own without anyone to push me or any reason to keep at it, so I signed up at a gym and got myself a coach. That means I have to commit to twice a week at the gym and if I’m not there my coach will call me. Yippee!! ... or not. Well, I guess that means that my house potato days are over.
