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.

Forget This!

I hate exercise, but I do like activity. In order to manage my life and time better, I am cutting this out altogether. I could change it to “live an active lifestyle,: but I am not, ‘cuz I do. I walk a helluva lot, went hiking a couple of weeks ago and whitewater rafting before that.

What did people do before gyms, workout tapes and yoga/pilates studios? They lived active lives. So do I.

This goal has caused me a bit of anxiety for me because I did not see myself doing it, but I am in my own way and that is that.

Getting Real -- Finally!

I exercised this morning. It wasn’t something too stressful, major or straining, but I did exercise and I can feel it—particularly in my gut and my arms.

I am finally taking this seriously and trying to make this a habit before my life gets crazy again.

This will help my energy issues, I will be healthier, loose weight and be able o keep up with my little one.


I do not have a formal exercise regimine, but I do not lead a sedentary life. Luckily, I have not gained weight, but I know I have to move more if i want to loose it. I just have to figure out ways to become more active.

Tae Bo Amped!

I had the original Tae Bo Series a few years ago (bought them off the street in NY for $5 a tape) and I loved them. Billy Blanks made a sista look good. Then, I let a friend who was getting married borrow them and I never saw them again. Add to that my penchant for being lazy and I gained a bunch of weight. I can no longer blame it on my daughter because she will be 3 next month. I bought the new Tae Bo and am reading the included information. Smokin’ body, here I come again!

So far...

I am so far from this goal that it isn’t even funny. My life is so hectic! The only exercise I get is walking to and from work, playing with my 2 year old, and the bit of running around I do at work. I really want to start some type of exercise regimine, but geesh…I am swamped. At least I am eating decently!
