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 20 pounds (read all 9 entries…)
Still struggling

Instead of losing 20lbs since I added this to my list, I’ve gained bringing me to my heaviest. I need help learning how to portion my meals and what to eat. I know fruits and veggies are needed but I’m actually allergic to fresh fruits. I just want to be at a healthier weight and be happier with myself.

finish college

I just took a year break from school so now I have to get back the motivation to finish. If I like the class I’ll easily get a B or an A. If I don’t care for it, I’ll get a C. So I want that umph again to goal for A’s and B’s. I just want to finish with my general classes already!

move out
One Day Soon

So I’ve watched a lot of my friends move out of their house only to turn right back and live with their parents again. If I ever move out I don’t want that to happen to me. I’d probably live alone cuz roomates could always screw you over even if they’re friends. After I pay off my car loan by next year I wonder if I’ll have enough to move out.

We’ll see. :/
