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.

StorkeyNot much of an achievement...

but I did stretch out my calf muscles while I was waiting for my wife after work. There was a step, so I got to it! Only a small thing, but felt good afterwards.

Am enjoying 43 things but have realised I am good at defining my goals, but terrible at actually working on any of them. Am going to have to get serious, or abandon altogether I think. sigh.

How does everyone track their daily progress on so many goals? Do you write an entry against each, or do you have a master goal where you track what you did each day across all goals? 2 years ago

SophieRe-visiting my 1st entry

I learned some stretches when I was in Physical Therapy. I also re-read my 1st entry of “stretch every day”. Most of stretches I learned in PT are also in the list from the article I mentioned in my 1st entry of “stretch every day”

I am more disabled than I was 5 years ago. Yet, all of the stretches listed in the article are still doable to me. I feel good about the gentle burn I feel while doing these stretches. 2 years ago
