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.

do 100 pushups (read all 6 entries…)
Harder than I thought!

I just did my twenty (another 43t’s goal marked off)... keep in mind I’ve been working on the bench press at the gym for a few months. I was surprised at how hard they were. I did 20 – then kept going and did 50 total… but I’m a little light headed now too. I really had to push the last 5, and wanted to stop at about 43 funny enough.

I will keep practicing and do a few more as often as I can push myself! I’ve always been the nerd, outta shape, and I’m finally coming around at 39 years old! I wanna get to 100 without stopping before July when I turn 40.


Well, I think you can do it if you really really work at it. There’s this guy at my school who, to help raise money for some cancer funding thingy, does 2000 pushups and he’s in special ed and he has a problem walking normally. But anyway, if he can do that many, I’m sure you can do 100 :D

Brian Ca. born, Southern by Choice has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
