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 think this is worth it...

if you do this responsibly. My mind is on an exercise goal right now, so I’ll have to exercise daily (if not, as close to daily as possible) to reach it. It’s very important to me and also I need to do this to honor a promise I made to a friend, too.

Day 14 of 14:

I’m sick with a sinus infection, I fianlly went to the doctor today and that’s the reason for my not feeling very well. So, I will be doing stretching yet again! :(

I hope that I’ll get better soon and be able to resume most of my regular workout soon.

Day 10 through 13 out of 14:


I am hoping to do some of my main workout again starting tomorrow. The reason I went back to stretching is that I pulled a muscle and that’s the reason I’ve been sore seemingly forever.

Day 4 through 9 out of 14:

Days 4 through 7- stretching
Day 8- crunches
Day 9- stretching, aerobic exercises, crunches, 3-mile run/walk

Day 2 and 3 of 14:

Stretching. I’m starting to realize how much I really do need to be exercising every day just by doing these stretches. I’ve got a lot of tension that I need to work out!

Day 1 of 14


Time to dust this goal off!

I am aiming for 2 weeks solid of exercise in some form. Last night, I did some aerobic exercise.

I took most of October off from this goal, so now it’s defintely time to resume it. I have health insurance again, and I have no excuses for not doing it like I should any more. The only thing is I’m still really tired a lot. But, a lot of that is my fault for how late I tend to stay up.

Time to get serious about this goal!

Sunday through today...

I did exercise. I promise this is helping ensure I get regular sleep! It’s tiring me out!!!

This goal has been difficult to keep at lately.

I’m letting excuses pile up too much, even for me. I think my whirling sadness made it easy for that to do, and then my knee has been giving me problems.

So yesterday I did some stretching, to make my body get into the routine again of doing something. Today, my sister wanted to go running, and that is going to be something that I have to do eventually as part of my exercise plan anyway. So, I bit the bullet and just did it. So, I did my regular workout, extra crunches and my walk/run. I walked 2 miles and ran .5 mile.

I think what I really need right now are some small victories in my goals, because I am getting overwhelmed with them. I need to do this, but I think if I do it for two weeks, then I’ll have established the rythym of exercising daily again.

Day 8...

is completed.
