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.

AbigailGoing well

I’ve been doing pretty well with this. Even on days when I don’t do a whole bunch of poses, I do some basic stretches in the morning. They make me feel good, even if it’s just a couple of minutes. At night I do meditation before going to sleep. I’m proud of myself for sticking to this. There ARE days I forget one or the other or both – so I’m leaving this on my list until it really becomes routine. 6 years ago

AbigailOkay, this goal was a stretch

Ha ha. I just couldn’t do it. I forgot all the time, and ended up guilting myself over not coming NEAR meeting this goal … and then never doing it. I’m adding a different goal that’s hopefully reachable. I KNOW it will make me feel better. I’ll start slow and hopefully be able to ramp up. 6 years ago

AbigailThrilled so far

I’m already surprised by how helpful this is. I do simple breathing meditations a couple times a day – just take a few minutes to focus on my breath and nothing else. I do it usually during my stretching. And the stretching makes me feel like a new person – I do it during work when I get the chance. 7 years ago

AbigailAs part of a new plan for health

I plan to add this to my routine of caring for myself during my cancer treatment. On chemo day, I may only be able to do a couple stretches and a short mind exercise, but visualizing a healthy me and stretching to stay active will definitely improve the effectiveness of my treatment. 7 years ago
