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.

Hike Iron Mtn twice (back to back) (read all 5 entries…)
This will definitely be a challenge...

I love love love Iron Mtn. I hike it all the time. In fact I was just there today (17th time). Once I watched the sunset from it and hiked back down in the dark.

For some reason, I have a hangup when it comes to longer hikes. I feel like I won’t make it or something. So I had the bright idea that I should get over this unreasonable fear by training on familiar territory.

So, the idea is to hike to the summit, back down to the gate, turn around and do it again. This will be 11.2 miles total and will hopefully allow me to break through the 6 mile barrier I seem to have right now.

There’s a register up top. The first time I get there, I will write down my intentions to return in a couple hours, which will definitely motivate me to complete the challenge.

And I really really want to do this.


Anerysa has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
