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.

Good then Bad

Over my 2 week winter break, I exercised every morning when I woke up. Since I have gone back to school (which was only 5 days ago) I have only exercised twice. I guess thats not too bad, I just dont have the same motivation I had over break. I need to get back into a routine.


Last night, me and my sister ran around our neighborhood for about 20 minutes. I found out that I’m REALLY out of shape! she kept me giong though, b/c I felt the need to prove that I could. Thats why its good to have someone to workout with; they keep you motivated. Tonight We did taebo, and I did the whole 40 minutes instead of 20. I’m proud of myself!


I jogged for 15 mintues yesturday morning! I’m getting ready to jog again in a little bit.


I jogged for 15 mintues last night!! I’m so proud of myself. I didnt know I could run that long w/o stopping. I’m so out of shape. I did some abs today.

Last Night

I did taebo! I’m trying to workout more often.

Good Job!

I did 20 minutes of TaeBo, and then I jogged for 10 minutes on my tread mill. I’m going to do some abs later.


I take an aerobics class at school; I guess you could count that as exercising everyday. But, it doesnt really seem like a worked out that day if thats all I do b/c its a class so I HAVE to do it. I want to start exercising more on my own time. I’ve been doing better, but I still have more exercising to do.


So, I didn’t exercise yesturday. Well, I kinda did b/c I cleaned my bathroom and vaccumed the whole downstaris floor and it took me like, 3 hours. So, I guess you could count that, b/c it was quite a workout if I do say so myself.

Good Job!

I did taebo tonight. Yay! I was feeling kinda of hefty (and lookin it). I need to start exercising again. So today I did good.


I feel really fat today. Honestly, I thknk its b/c I’m having other problems, but I feel fat nonetheless. I need to exercise. I feel unhealthy.
