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.

Well I started running today for my first time in a while. I have never really been a runner to say. I play hockey 2 times a week so I thought I would try running 2 miles today. It was cold this morning I live in Michigan so I think it was about 30 degrees out. My lungs started to burn after the first hour. I dont know why, if it was becasue of the cold or if I wasnt in shape or both. My legs and everything else was fine, anyways I hope to keep this going and not quit after a week lol.


I was at 165lbs about 2 years ago. I worked out 2 days a week the whole summer with a personal trainer. Since then, I finished college, but I gained 15 lbs back up to 180. I guess thats what happens when you do nothing, sit around and eat raman noodles all day.


I want to:
