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.

Take it easy when my body is telling me to slow down.

14cauliflowersI'm resting in bed right now and dh is making me tea and dinner

I had terrible leg pains at work today so I am resting in bed right now to try and feel better. 3 years ago

14cauliflowersIt's a stay in bed day

My body has been hurting for two days now and one woman at work noticed that I was limping when really my gait is off.

So I’m having a stay in bed day today and hoping that my body will quieten down. 3 years ago

14cauliflowersI'm missing my book club tonight

It’s a hard decision to decide to miss my book club tonight.

On one hand it can lift my spirits. However, I have been in a lot of pain today and my meds didn’t work, a nap didn’t work, and after dinner I still felt bad. In fact, I feel even worse now.

So I need to take care of my body even before I can enjoy myself. The good thing is that I don’t miss many fun opportunities anymore because of my chronic pain. So I just have to remember that it’s just one night. 3 years ago

14cauliflowersI took today off work again

I still had a fever, I felt sick, I had to keep running to the washroom. I did spend a couple of hours doing emails and then I rested and slept the rest of the day.

Hopefully I’m well enough to go back tomorrow as I have solid and timely work to accomplish but if I’m still sick with this stomach bug and sinus infection then I will send a list of what I’ve done and what needs to still be done on a couple of timely tasks that I’m working on and ask her to delegate it or save it for me when I return. 3 years ago

14cauliflowersWent to the doctor's today

and I have a sinus infection and a viral/flu gastro bug. I feel so nauseous – ugh. 3 years ago

14cauliflowersMy husband took one look at me this morning...

...and said you need a Benylin day.

I have a cold and a fever so now I’m back in bed.

Work is always so busy and it’s never a good day to be sick but I need to take care of myself first so that I can work. 3 years ago

14cauliflowersI'm not feeling like my usual self

I have less energy, some pain and I’m tired, can’t think straight and I’m easily irritable.

So I’m taking it easy. I’ve slowed down a bit at work, even though I’m still productive, I’m not necessarily going to get all of my blogging and writing done on time.

But once I feel like myself again I can do what I normally do. 3 years ago
