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.

PlorangeDoing Much Better

I’m still a work in progress to be as healthy as possible, but I’m doing much better than I was at the beginning of the year. I drink tons of water, remember to take my vitamins, eating healthier and exercising more. 12 months ago

PlorangeJuly Goals

So this month I’m going to try to get back on track.

I have been eating more sugary foods the past couple of days. It reminds me of how I used to eat. I want to cut the sugar.

I will start taking my vitamins again.

I will make time to work out! Since I have not been working out that much I don’t feel that things are as tone or as tight as they were. I feel more jiggly:(

I will floss at least three times a week. 17 months ago

PlorangeApril - June

So I haven’t been updating this, but it is still on something I’m working towards.

Soda – I’ve only had a handful since my March update.

Vitamins – The week leading upto my SIL’s wedding was busy and I was only taking them sporadically. I still haven’t quite gotten back on track.

Fitness – my daughter is working on potty training through the night so I’m back to not getting much sleep with the multiple wake-ups at night time. I have not been getting up and going to the gym like I want to. My cross-fit class is cancelled for the summer and I just found out that my spin class will only be for one day during the summer. Going to have to refocus on my fitness.

Water – I have been drinking more than enough water during the day. I’m happy with how I’m doing with this portion.

Floss – I have not been flossing at all! 18 months ago

The best bet to improving one’s health is to health and drink healthier. Even that is more important than exercising, though exercising is still greatly recommended and for good reason. Other than those two things, you guys next best bet is probably to find a affordable health care aide program like at Calgary. 20 months ago


So I’m not sure how long it has been since my last soda. I’ve been very good and have not had one in a while.

I have taken my vitamins every day of March so far.

I worked out 17 days in February. I have been doing a few exercies every day at home and I have taken 2 crossfit classes and a spin class so far for March!

I have been sleeping and eating better! 21 months ago

This goal resumes well all what I need to do, eat better, exercise more, follow my doctor’s instructions, go to the dentist without freaking out.
Good luck to everyone ;) 23 months ago
