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.

One week strong on my Workout

Started a new workout. Going to try it for at least 30 days. So far so good. I have so much more stamina 1 week in than I did when I started.


Eating healthy seems to be the easy half of this for me. When it comes to exercise, it is just so hard to stay motivated. I always find myself choosing to do something else with my evening instead of going to the gym. When I do exercise I feel great afterward, but somehow I forget that feeling each and every time. I have to constantly remind myself of how great it feels to stretch out all of my muscles, how physically great it is when the workout is over, and how accomplished I feel after I can successfully stay on my workout schedule for a while.

I think part of my hang up, is not wanting to go to the gym when I know it is busy. Something about working out in a crowded place makes me uncomfortable. I feel like everyone is watching me, when I know in fact that nobody is. I should start working out at home during those times. Maybe buy a new workout dvd. If I can get to the gym some days, and work out at home the rest, I can stay on track and get more accomplished.

43 Things has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.
