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.

do a split
1 hour?!

I was reading some of the entries and noticed that some people stretched for around 30 minutes. I wonder if I would then be in the minority since I stretch for about 10 minutes. It works just fine for me though and I still feel like I’m making way.
Just out of curiosity, I think I’ll try 30 minutes tonight and see what it does.
Best of luck to everyone reaching for this goal! :)



live past 16
Halfway done.

So I haven’t been stoned to death, drowned,fallen down any stairs, shot, or killed in any way at all. So far, so good.
My whole goal stems from a silly little vision I think I might have had at 10 yrs old where I die from what I think is drowning. Needless to say my goal of learning to swim won’t be done this year. >_<
Best of luck to everyone else 16 and under! :)



see Lacuna Coil live (read all 2 entries…)
May!

Okay…calm…down.
THEY’RE COMING IN MAY AND I’M GETTING TICKETS!!!
Finally! I have been waiting for 3 years now!
I missed them the first time they came to Chicago and ended up settling on a free show at the art museum, one where I ended up clapping and walking out at the same time halfway throughout he performance. Needless to say, it was not the best recovery experience.
But!
I’m gonna make it this time!
Best of luck to everyone else completing this goal! They are touring for their new album now, so lets get it done! _
