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.

I think my glass is too big. A glass before every meal would be better and I’d spend less time in the “smallest room”. 4 years ago

I did it today! I had to pee every two seconds but I did it!! It is a lot harder than it seems… wish me luck on tomorrow! 4 years ago

monkeysentinelSix Months 23rd July

This is another open-ended goal which I really dislike.

Six months should be enough, although they say 21 days is long enough to form a habit!. 4 years ago


What is it about water? For some odd ball reason I cant seem to drink a full glass while Im at work. I can go through 8 hours with just a sip. Its that bad. Am I too busy or just cant stand the bland taste of it? Well, Ive noticed that “things” are changing in my body and my friends have pleaded with me that I need to increase my water intake. Therefore, I now bring a water bottle at work and try to finish it within two hours and then refill it and drink that within the next two hours. Its a start right? hehehe With a meal, I will turn it to a game and try and finish a glass or two of whatever beverage Im drinking. Alrighty, wish me luck… 5 years ago
