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.

Another FAIL of Epic Proportions

Can you believe I made it to DAY SEVENTY, and then somehow managed to miss so many days I couldn’t… or wouldn’t… make them up Had I remained on track, I would have been done tomorrow.

Now, realistically, I won’t be able to re-start for nearly a month. We have houseguests coming to visit for ten days starting tomorrow; a few days after they leave I am going on a trip for about a week.

My target date for starting again is somewhere around the middle of October, which means I won’t finish… assuming I can make it work this time… until late in January of next year.

I’m very discouraged and annoyed with myself right now.

Until I resume the full-on daily 100, I shall at least try to do a few sets as regularly as I can so I am not restarting from square one.

Day 50 Done!

Halfway point, Day 50, and still chugging along.

Day 40 - 22 July 2013

Day 40, still at it.

Day 30 - 12 June 2013

I’m not feeling any stronger, but I guess I’ll keep going.

Day 20 -- 2 June 2013

I’ve made it to Day 20. Still slow, still difficult.

Day 10 -- 22 June 2013

Trying again. I’ve made it to Day 10 so far.

3 January 2012

Days 2 and 3 successfully completed.

DAY ONE - 1 January 2012

It’s been a while. A LONG while. I am attempting 100 daily sit-ups for 100 days again. I started today, 1 January 2012. It was not easy. I am having to start out from the knees, or what used to be called “girl style.”

Let's try this again

Starting… tomorrow!

Let's try this again, shall we?

Has it really been nearly 4 years since I completed this goal; and since I stopped doing sit-ups?

davidd has gotten 30 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
