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.

Plans got derailed when I went on a multi-day roadtrip in the middle of my last attempt. A friend tried and he said it was shite. I have plans to work on core body strength with a friend this summer, and I intend to make pushups part of that.


Started a couple of days ago. My shoulders are sore, but I’m on my way. If all goes according to the perfect plan (which it won’t), I’ll be done by the end of August.

Well, here goes.

The whole idea of getting more in shape is appealing, and yet I need a more definite goal than “get in better shape.” So here we go.

When I was doing physical therapy about ten years ago, I had to do twenty pushups a day, three times a day. That ended up being too much. But after only a week or so, I was getting pretty close. This will be hard, but I think I can do it.
