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.

be a chef
Not as a career

I would like to learn cooking skills to be able to make and improvise unusual dishes for the future. I won’t be a restaurant chef but have enough knowledge to prepare a variety of things.

Some progress

After getting an ebook on v 2008 and slowly reading through and working through the examples, it is slowly sinking in.

get a six pack

Being a naturally lean person helps with this. If you’re not, you can still achieve this with a low fat diet and plenty of cardio work. Walking, running, swimming etc should do it. If you’re into fitness, interval training is excellent.

The next step is to build the abdominal muscles, the most effective for this are bicycle crunches, you may only be able to do 10 at first (doing them in rhythm quickly is even harder) but after a while you should be able to reach 30 reps. Maintaining the diet, cardio and abdominal exercises is the sure path. The ab exercises aren’t essential after you build initially, so can be done occasionally to keep them toned.
