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.

I did not finish this, but I could not find the give up button

It’s not the way for me. I want to run, but first I’m going to finish the insanity program. I really enjoy that.


Will start this up again as soon as I can. Keep wanting to do this, but bouts of flu get in my way.


Took a break on vacation, but hiked every day to keep fit. I just couldn’t run in Devon, too used to the flat country of The Netherlands. But I picked it up again when I returned. It’s even better now, hiking in Devon really helped me in becoming fitter.


I just finished the second week of doing week 1 (still doing this at half-speed). Now on to week two of the program and week 3 of starting this. I find it pretty hard, but I’m doing it. For someone who likes to procrastinate as much as I do that’s something I’m proud of. I don’t want to let myself down.


I’m doing this at half speed as my health is not very good and this is the first exercise Ii’m doing since I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. It’s scary because I’m not sure what the effect is on my glucose levels and whether I will experience hypoglycemia during a run. So I’m going to take it a bit slower. Tomorrow I will do my fifth run. That means I’m halfway through my second time of week 1.
