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.

It gives me a stomach ache anyways, so I should let it go. I really want to start this now especially since I’m starting school, and I don’t want to rely on coffee for energy. 16 months ago

Mike146Day 2, no java

Only 3 cups of green tea. I feel great. Not nervous, cognitive skills as strong, if not stronger, slept deeply last night. 2 years ago

Mike146Day 1: no coffee

..but a few cups of green tea. The result: calm all day. 2 years ago

Mike146Trying yet again

Coffee, coffee, coffee. Been addicted to it for close to 30 years. I should just say caffeine, as Coke was my initial drug of choice. Stopped pop years ago and now am on a straight bean diet.

My reasons for wanting to stop:

- Anxiety (nuff said)
- Health. The stuff causes me to put on weight. That’s a fact.
- Money. Not too much of an issue if brewed at home, but way too expensive at the café.
- Concentration. I think I’m smarter when I’m high on caffeine, but I really think I’m just, well, high. Good for assembly line work maybe, but not for critical thinking. 2 years ago
