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.

run a 5k (read all 10 entries…)
Untitled

I initially used the Couch to 5K program which will slowly build up to it, a very good program if you haven’t ran before (iPhone app if you have one is great). Though I hadn’t ran in years it started to come back to me and I did fine. I made fitness a top goal and it worked out great. The biggest part of doing this, if you stick to the Couch to 5K program is to listen to it…you may feel great but don’t push it, only run every other day until your body is ready to go further otherwise you risk injury which is a huge setback.

Just decided to do it...

A group of us set a goal of doing Tough Mudder and have been working out many times a week. A friend of mine wanted to run this as he has never really ran in his life and did a great job of it.
