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 am really struggling with this goal. I Need to re focus and work harder. But it feels like swimming upstream, and it should feel like swimming downstream. when I was younger (high school, university, then first five years working) it was much easier. I am not sure if it is the demands of my job, my body getting older, or what. I am getting to the point where I want to check this goal off as completed or just give up.

I have fucking had it. I am going to get my 12 things done.


home workouts are working out and I actually enjoy them.

My big goal is to work out 4 times per week. I can do this.


Suddenly I like working out at home and I can focus when working out at home. This was always impossible in the past. I will pick up a few more things for working out at home.

Pleased, getting there.

I had a great home workout. I figure I can now work out twice a week at the gym and twice per week at home. 4 times per week should do it.

i am working out and watching what I eat. I have really cut back on fat, alcohol, and sugar. I am drinkng skim milk, oj, and vegetable juice like a frigging camel. I have learned a lot about my own schedule and habits and I realize that I cannot go to my current gym more than 2 times a week due to time constaints. I bought some more equipment for my home and set it up in the basement. I avoided this in the past because I had focus problems when workin out at home but I think I am past this now. between home and gym things look good. I am also thinking about changing to a gym closer to my house.

The gym has been closed over the holidays so I cannot do much pumping up. But I have been watching my food and trying to get more protein and less fat. Today I tried to check my body fat. According to my scale at home, I am at 22.5. According to the below link, I am just under 20. My goal is to be under 1.Just jerking yer chain.


I need a gym membership close to my office.
