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 took a Bikram yoga class today to strengthen my flexibility. After ninety minutes of hundred-four degree heat, I can really feel the difference.


In an effort to jump start things, I started taking pilates. I really need to open up my hamstrings.

Day One

I’m challenging myself to complete this goal. It’s not going to be easy. I tried some deep lunge stretches and it wasn’t pretty. My aim is to stretch thirty minutes twice a day.


I didn’t complete this goal by my deadline. It has only made me more determined to do this.


Did some basic stretching today. I’m fearful I will not meet my deadline of August 27th.


My deadline is approaching. I need to step it up and stretch twice a day.


I just tried the leg stretcher for the first time. I had some discomfort in my right leg just above the inside of my knee. I’m hoping to do another stretching session tonight for other fifteen minutes.


I borrowed a leg stretcher from a friend. Hopefully this will aid in my progress.


I’m been slacking on this goal. Since my bunion surgery I have been making excuses for why I have not been stretching.


I’m seeing a small difference. My hamstrings are very tight. I start my stretches by extending my legs straight out and trying to touch my head to my knees. Next, I use a chair and lean my forearms on the seat and slide my feet out to the sides.
