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.

this will help with my weight loss goal.
Will start with a walk with the boyfriend tomorrow :) 4 years ago

fidgiegirlKilled too many pedometers . . .

but my first walking goal has made me a lot more cognizant of taking the opportunity to walk rather than seeing it as a pain to have to walk. For example, this weekend my BF’s brother kindly invited us to his Airstream park to spend a few days. He lent us the golf cart to go back to BF’s non-Airstream tucked in the hidden non-Airstream section, but as we tooled along we were like, “why didn’t we walk this?” And so a few times we did. But before tracking my steps a few summers ago, I wouldn’t even have thought twice. I just see people who wouldn’t be able to walk, and it makes me want to walk more . . . . so that hopefully I don’t get to that point myself. But every day is down the tubes . . . only because I have gone through too many pedometers to keep up the tracking! 6 years ago

fidgiegirlDid four days

and didn’t make it today. Got to 7200. But I am keeping track – I realize there will be the occasional day when I don’t get there, but want to keep working on it regardless. 6 years ago

gmrgrl10,000 steps

This I really struggle to achieve. Know I should do it, but can’t seem to manage it. Need to get the study out of the way first. 6 years ago

fidgiegirlThe difference between "a day" and "EVERY day"

I checked off the goal of “walk 10,000 steps a day” about six months ago. But this one is different, in my mind, because of the word “every.” I am going to start maintaining a health journal and am going to track my steps again. This will happen over the next three months. For two weeks, I’ll just see what’s going on. Then it will be time to work on remedying or pushing what I see. I don’t know how I will know when this goal is done (I’m not going to leave it up until I die . . . ). For now I will focus on getting there and I suspect I will know when I’ve made this a habit and can check it off. 6 years ago
