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.

Pay off $6000 by June 30, 2007 (read all 3 entries…)

Finally, wrote that check to pay it off since my savings account interest rate is no longer higher than my credit card interest rate. Now, I just have to watch my spending and start saving more.

Eat only one piece of pastry/sweets a week (read all 2 entries…)
This turns out harder than I thought

I have been binging on sweets; thus the weight gain. Again, my inability to be on target is due to my lack of commitment and focus. If i watch myself I am able to do it but if I don’t, who knows how many pieces of truffle I have devoured in the last 3 months.

Lose 15 lbs (read all 2 entries…)
Aahhhhhhhhh.....Checked my weight last weekend

and found that I have gained 4 pounds.

Need to get more fibers in my diet and go to the gym everyday for 30 minutes. I am so lame, the gym is just downstairs, free. Working with the personal trainer one day a week is not enough. I eat too much.

I found that if I keep track of my weight on a daily basis, I lose weight rather than gain. I will go back to keeping a log.

Really need to lose this fat so that I am not sizzling like a piece of lard on the pavement when I go home during the hot hummid SE Asia summer.
