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.

want this soooo bad

I tried an urban dance class just to see how bad my coordination was. Gosh, its awful but I’ve got the summer to work on that. I’m still continuing last years task of getting stong to support my bodyweight and fit. I used to do weights last year but didn’t eat enough so ended up going underweight and not sustaining the muscle. Want this soooo bad. My fitness is pretty good, my stamina (I like jogging), I did up my biceps a lil’ bit but the triceps are MUCH more difficult. I wana be able to do pullups, chinups and the lot for upper body strength cos I wana learn to breakdance (something I’ve wanted since a kid but u kno parents being so restrictive I never had the chance an the absence of those clubs in my area too).



coordination

I don’t have too good coordination but this is something I really wana do. Can I get round this or do you have to have done sports and developed really good coordination as a kid to be able to achieve this?

really don't want to give up

I’m really trying to build my upper body strength for this one. My main goal is my strength to weight ratio so that I find all of this easier. So far the arm excersises are going slow. The tricep excersises my body finds the hardest and I get a headache afterwards! Though after a tricep workout today I got up and was suprised to see quite a bulge at the back of my arms running along it. I was like “ooh, where did that come from?”
