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.

Getting closer!

Max: 14! Although I just hurt my hand and probably can’t do any pushups for a couple days, beh.

It's getting easier

Current max: 11. I could have done more today, strengthwise, but I started feeling faint so I stopped there. It was more than the recommended minumum in the hundred Pushups program anyway.

Fell off the track

Since I managed to do 10, I pretty much fell off the tarck and stopped exercising for a week. But that always happens, and I know better now than be all disouraged and stop doing this altogether. I practiced again yesterday, and will do so tomorrow. 20 pushups here I come…

Moving up from 10

I did ten, now it’s time to aim for 20! I want to keep the goals small so that I’ll feel accomplished often enough. Still following the program at

Oh, and I’m aiming at 20 CONSECUTIVE pushups, without resting in the middle, not just 20 in one workout session. (That I can already do.)

tigerpaw has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
