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.

take steps to get sick less


Entries from everyone

sunyathis is ongoing

of course
but i’m counting it as finished since i believe i’ve made goods progress

i think the green tea helps, and basic as it is, lots and lots of hand-washing 6 years ago

sunyagreen tea extract

got it! and it’s probably the natural course of recovery, but i feel i’m getting better already

now i learn white tea extract is more potent against bacteria and stuff. that’s fine. can move on to that later. 7 years ago

sunyai get sick too much

this week i’ve had a cold, and as usual this means almost a week in bed. the past couple of days i was feeling better, but now i fear i’m getting worse again… maybe recontracting from my partner. i see my past entries are rife with mentions of illness.

i was doing better for a time. i took a hard look at the list of things you can do to avoid colds and things, and i was doing as well as i could on most of them. i try to get enough sleep, but i’m an insomniac, so not a huge amount i can do there. i do eat fruits and veggies… like them. take vitamins, etc.

the one area i saw for improvement was hand-washing… so i’ve been washing my hands a lot more. it did seem to help for a while, but now here i am.

i’m looking at two things now: green tea extract and neti pot. green tea is more realistic, since any sort of daily ritual is difficult for me to maintain. or i could say isn’t something i’ve ever succeeded at for long. as usual, i’m agog when i see what gt extract sells for. i’m trying not to make this an obstical, a mental obstical, and just be a grownup 7 years ago
