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.

I’m in week two of my diet and planned menu. It is so simple that I almost feel like I cheated on this thing. But I’m eating with intention and it’s so basic that… I can plan and prepare for it in about 3 hours per week. 2 years ago


I’m noticing that there are some things that I haven’t disallowed that I’m still avoiding. Today I really wanted coffee. I haven’t told myself no coffee but I still didn’t have any (yet). I just know that I’m eating more for purpose now and so I’d like to be more purposeful about what I eat.

The main reason I was thinking about coffee was because I was a bit cold so instead I went outside for a bit.

But maintaining the menu plan is a breeze. It’s an easy one to keep. 2 years ago

superdirkaWeek two

I just focus on my weekday menu, which is pretty simple because it’s spelled out for me as part of my fitness plan. I let myself be more flexible over the weekends. I’ll follow up in a week but I think I’ve got this one taken care of for now.

It’s easy to shop for
It’s easy to prep for (I do most of my work week cooking in one afternoon)
It’s pretty easy to follow (allowing myself some liberties – I eat all that I’m supposed to and I allow myself a little snack once in a while) 2 years ago

superdirkaRelated goal

I’ve got a goal of getting ripped (into shape) which directly relates to my nutrition. The exercise plan had a diet plan attached to it. I just started it (on day 2) but it seems pretty easy to prepare for.

I haven’t gone full psycho on my diet. I just eat the stuff I’m supposed to for my exercise plan. If I want something more I’ll have it. But eating the required meals keeps me pretty full. So far this is a win. I’ll follow up in a week. 2 years ago

'Jackie ThwaiteLast pay day - Duck ala'Orange (different, but nice)

I made up a menu plan last pay day and it worked so well. I thought up meals that when they were leftovers could be made in to something completely different, so I wouldn’t get bored with the meals.

I also tried to use a different ‘star’ for the meal. Chicken, pork, fish, seafood, meatless, beef, duck, turkey, goat, kangaroo, sausages, roasts, etc.

This week my little girl had her birthday party so all the planning for this pay went down the drain. Next pay though, I’ll start again. We had a great time though, and we have leftovers for weeks! 3 years ago
