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.

get back together with my ex (read all 2 entries…)
Should get rid of this

So my ex, actually ended up getting married. This was very depressing news for me to hear. I’m not sure what to do with this goal. Should I take it down? It makes me mad to take down goals that I haven’t completed. But realistically this is a goal I can’t complete. So do I just leave it up forevere? How about some advise here people.



go to spinning class
It was good...

so I did my first spinning class today. I did it about an hour and a half after playing hockey. The class didn’t seem as bad as I thought it would be. Either I’m in better than average shape from all the hockey and gym time (I do 20 mins on a exercise bike every time I’m in the gym). Or the class wasn’t just as hard (up tempo, or extreme) as some of the other classes. I’m going to try and take more classes at different times with different instructors. So I guess I’ll find out if there are harder classes. By the way, all this “not as hard as I thought” talk, does NOT mean it was easy. I just was expecting to walk out of the class, maybe limp out lol, go home and not want to move. But there’s always the chance I could wake up tomorrow and be sore as all hell! I’ll try and keep this up to date with some more entries.



lose 15 pounds (read all 2 entries…)
Maybe I should have made this more specific...

So I had an evautaion at the gym the other day. In 4 weeks I lost almost 4% body fat. My goal is to drop one percent body fat per week, so I’m almost on pace. I lost 8 lbs. of fat, and put on 2 lbs. of muscle (so I lost 6 lbs. total). My goal is to be at around 9% body fat and weigh between 225-230. so hopefully I’ll be there in about 12 more weeks (if I stay on pace that is!).
