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.

dunk a basketball (read all 2 entries…)
Still not there

I can do it one handed, but not with both hands. I used to be able to do this fairly easily in my 20s, but after a broken knee and a couple years of having the basketball relegated to the closet, it’s a struggle.

I’m 6’4”, 195 lbs. I should be able to do this consistently!

Anyway, my goal isn’t just to dunk it, but to dunk it in a game. I’ve been playing 5 on 5 full court picku up games 3-4X a week for the past few months, and I’ve definitely gotten in better shape. I’ve had plenty of opportunities, but I have yet to really try to throw it down in the heat of the moment.

I think I’m kind of stuck. I might try to do some specific training for vertical jump development.


soonforget Anyone using the 'Visitors' widget ever gotten a visitor from DPRK?


Plyometrics is a conditioning routine to specifically target the muscles you use to jump higher. Do a search on it and find the exercises you like the most. YouTube has some pretty good tutorials.
