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.

Take more pictures

I’ve been doing the picture a day thing, makes me get out my camera and take plenty every day. Going about 2 months strong.

Break 300+ Subscribers to

Not sure when this happened, but we are hovering around 340 or so now. Reducing my posts to just once a week actually helped with this goal

Managed to hit the 200 lb goal by mid April

It only took a year and a half, but now I’ve got to maintain this weight and that’s a job in and of itself.

Help Team Awesome Win STA Travel Internships!

Hands down, two of the cool and most creative people I know are my brother, Keane Fine, and my friend, Zach Swee. Besides being incredible and loyal friends, they are fun and adventurous. Take for example their 24 hour trip down to the Dominic Republic on $20 plane tickets. Or their European backpack excursion. Or you might be intrigued by their Superior Human Being competition. Needless to say they are awesome people.

Anyways, they have both created videos for a contest by STA Travel for a world traveling summer internship. Take five minutes and learn about the two coolest people I know. Use the links to go straight to youtube and rate, comment and share the videos there.

Do NOT play Settler's of Catan online for the month of February
It was easy!

And I was more productive. Well worth not wasting the time.

Give blood
I've given blood a lot, but I need to again

It’s been several month since I’ve been eligible to give again, but I haven’t made an appointment.
I’ve got to get on that!

Fall in love
I got lucky!

Married the most wonderful and beautiful women in the world!

Anyone have a good strength training gym workout?

The Y I’m going to has Cybex machines. Just wondering how to decide what an appropriate weight to start at is and at what rate to increase?

I weighed 233.2 pounds on January 1st. I need to be around 200

I’ve been around 200 lbs since high school. It’s on the high end for my height, but good for my body type. Anyways, I have some health issues that make it extra important I stay at a healthy weight, and I’ve gotten away from that this past year. 233 is the most I’ve ever weighed, so I’ve got to fix that.

We got a membership to the YMCA and have a treadmill at home (I can walk, can’t run). Trying to exercise and eat an appropriate amount of food (that’s my problem I over eat).

The goal is to be 200 lbs by June 21st.

I’ll find a better page or something sometime.

organise a team to fund 43 microloans through
This is a great goal!

My wife and I, and my family have done about 10+ different loans already.

Do you want to count those? Or are these new?

Totally screwed this one up!

I blew it the last three months! Maybe I’ll have a chance at it next year…

I did make yogurt though!

I made yogurt, I think that’s my food accomplishment for the year.

Get on the frontpage of the Digg Religion Podcast Section
All I need is people to digg my podcast here:

This is for the more tech savvy folks. If you have a digg account please take a moment to hop over and digg my podcast:
“Thoughts on the Journey” :

They just opened the podcasting section and I figure if I get a couple digg’s more people we’ll actually see my podcast and have the chance to check it out.

We’ll see.

Get a compost Bin (read all 5 entries…)
Well worth it!

We’ve got a bin that supposedly holds 80 gallons. That should be enough for our household of 9.


Send the same funny e-card to everyone until 6/1/07 (read all 4 entries…)
Okay, I'm going to E-Cards

I’ve decided to make the leap back to e-cards. I’ll choose one to give to everyone I know, but I’m gonna do e-cards.

First of all, it will be easier to do. Second, it will cost less. Third, I don’t have most people’s current address. So I’ll figure out how to get their address this year…



look into square foot gardening
Anyone know anything about this?

Just wondering what anyone might know about this gardening idea?

I’ve got to find that book I think.
