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.

1. I am still no where on my financial goala!!!! I haven’t made my budget, I haven’t started saving or planning. I feel like I did all last year where this is concerned. Just floating along with good intentions. I just got so behind that I am running around trying to play catch up with everything!!!
2.I have not changed my compulsions. I have to think about what I really want to change and what I want to change them to and then I think I can kind of take off from there.
3. This weekend in Dallas was the first time this year I broke me diet. I got sooooo sick that I think that cured the curiosity about how fabulous other peoples food must taste. I am doing fairly well. I have lost 15 lbs. so far this year. I am doing a 6 day fruit cleanse right now. Something soft and easy to digest for awhile after being sick.
4. I haven’t really decided what I want my life to look like yet. I need to define this before I can go towards it. I can say that I am very happy with the way things are shaping up though!
5. I don’t feel like I am spending my time wisely. Like I said earlier I feel like I am floating around with good intentions. Like last year…
Ok. so I am not really getting ahead with these goals. I am really aware of the third one though and that is really important for me this year. I love keeping track of the goals once a week, it means I can’t ignore them. 2 years ago

1. I am still not dealing with this…I feel like it is one of the most important goals on here but also one of the hardest for me.
2. I am not changing my compulsions. I am just dealing with the ones I have right now. I need to go gung-ho towards another compulsion to make this feel like its working.
3. I am at market so I didn’t weigh. I weighed one day last week though and had already lost the three pounds I needed to lose. I was sick though..hope I didn’t gain it back. I am still doing my raw diet and loving it so hopefully I am on trac for this one.
4. I am living the life I want right now and I have actually been so happy and excited about life. Part of this comes from work and the other part comes from getting that much closer to being able to adopt the boys.
5. I don’t know if I am doing this. I also don’t have a real understanding of how to measure this. I am definitely not time wasting while I have been at market. I love the way I spend my time when I travel. I am the best traveler in the world. I wish I lived my regular life the way I did when I was traveling. 2 years ago

I’m rebelling against all these goals. It could have to do with the fact that I am sick. I have RSV. The baby has RSV…of course I am most worried about him. But the doctor said RSV in adults manifests itself as a mild cold. He is crazy and has never had it… I feel awful. This is the wors cold I have ever had. So, I am not too worried about my goals this week.
1. I have not taken care of my financial life at all this week.
2. I haven’t changes my compulsions…I have really wanted to either. In fact, I just want to curl up with comfort food and watch bad tv.
3. I lost 5 lbs. so I am on track with that goal!!!
4. Still haven’t lived my life or recorded it! I have limitedly tried but until I feel better I don’t care.
5. Spent my time in bed! 2 years ago

elliewestonlets see....

1. I have not started on my finances. I have made a budget book and along with it is a menu planner. The biggest expense we have is on food and we waste a lot, so I set the two up together.
2. I don’t feel like I am changing my compulsions yet. I am slowing heading that way. I have to focus on the things I want to change them to in order for this to work. It should be easier since I am still lame and have plenty of time to do some research.
3. Lost more than I needed to be not as much as I would have liked. I AM on track though and that is what I need to remember.
4. I have not been taking my pictures( I can’t find my battery charger) still haven’t found the charger cord I bought for my video camera..ugh! I am keeping up with my journaling and my agenda though so I’m doing something!
5. Since I have been in bed this entire week this goal feels weird. Like I am not doing it BUT since my feet are hurt and my hand…spending my time in bed is wise. 2 years ago
