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.

Pete TumeltyI'm a YES MAN!?!

Ever since watching Jim Carey’s Yes Man film, I realised that I was close to being him at the start of the film.
My friend told me to read the book it is based on by Danny Wallace. It also changed my thoughts.

I read that book last year whilst on holiday and it definitely opened my life for the better. I got up to watch the sunrise. I performed yoga on the beach. I cycled whilst on holiday.
Coming home and the old ways set back in. The daily routine and boring job etc. It’s hard to be positive all the time!

But I read/listen a fair bit of motivational books and over time it has an effect. This year I have made a real life change to get my fitness up. At 44 it’s surprising how easy it is to lounge about and the weight piles on. So I joined a gym (which I go to at least twice a week). I cycle a lot more. I even started swimming in lakes and rivers (another of my goals).
This is all to combat my lethargy and tiredness soo I can do more things. And it’s working. I feel more energised, more alert and weigh less.
This is part of a long term, life changing goal. There are no such things as diets or fitness regimes. There is a lifestyle choice of healthy eating and living.
It’s hard at times. I could do with eating and drinking less. But it’s a start and it won’t stop.
Trust me, it gets a lot harder to lose the weight and stay motivated the older you get so start now. Life isn’t a long, ever lasting path. I still feel like my 20 plus years of adulthood have gone in a few years. And it seems a waste. I am changing that now!

Read the book. It’s insparational! Si A Todo! 2 years ago

I like to believe that in the past year, I’ve taken more opportunities by agreeing to do many more things than I probably would have – that is, by saying ‘yes’ more. Sure, it was not always good for my study, but what’s a lower grade when you’re having more fun than you’ve had in a long, long time? (: 3 years ago
