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.

DanadanadanaNot bad...

15 days in a row so far… 6 years ago

DanadanadanaStarting again

Not multivitamins exactly, but I have some vitamins and probiotics from the naturopath and I’m supposed to be taking them every day with meals. I was good at taking them for the first week, but then Christmas stuff hit the fan…

So I’ll start again. 7 years ago


After the placebo effect wore off I didn’t feel any different :/ and they’re expensive little things for a so-called effect I can’t even see, meh. I’d rather eat food.

“I’m also not a “do XYZ daily” kinda person.” <—exactly, me neither :/ never mind eh :) 7 years ago

cbapIf you feel ill

Skip it immediately. I tried it. I believed in it. Then I read one too many articles by the New York Times author Michael Pollan.

Now I get that vitamins were always a bit too optimistic as a path to health. A great idea, but we’re just not advanced enough to make a food pill yet. Nutrition is a few hundred years behind where it needs to be.

You’re better off eating more local organic fruit and vegetables. 7 years ago

DanadanadanaAh forget it...

I’m just not a vitamin person. I’m also not a “do XYZ daily” kinda person.

It kind of loses it’s goal-worthiness if I change it to “Take a multivitamin once in a while”, doesn’t it? ;-) 7 years ago

DanadanadanaNeed to start again

If at first you don’t succeed (and at second and third) – try try again! 7 years ago


So I guess this is sort of a multivitamin, it’s a recharging complex I bought from Simonsons. It’s for hair growth, nail growth and skin replenishing. I took that almost everyday for a month, but I missed a few. To be honest. I guess I can’t consider that a whole month huh? I’ll just leave it on my 43 things. 7 years ago


Totally forgot for a couple weeks. Whups! 7 years ago


Have missed a few days this week, but overall I’m doing okay on this. 7 years ago

DanadanadanaFirst week

Done! A good start. 7 years ago


January 9 (today). 7 years ago


I tend not to eat very consistently from day to day… and so I decided to take multivitamins to kind of give my body a boost, back it up if you like :)

Well, I got my sister to teach me about different kinds of vitamins while we were in town :) in Superdrug, Boots and, where I bought them in the end, Savers! We were going to get them from Boots but the pills were large (literally, the actual pill itself was big) and I have trouble swallowing them as it is… :/ but yeah! :)

I got a tub of multivitamins and I’ve taken one every day since then :) I’ll have to think for a second to decide on when the first time was… I think it was December 27th! :) That’s FIVE multivitamins I’ve taken so far, FIVE! :) although… ::pats his body down tentatively:: I don’t feel very different… :/ but oh well, I’m simply doing it for the health benefits :)

By the way… is this worth it? :/ Is this the right thing to be doing / the right reason to be doing it?

Thanks :) 8 years ago
