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 able to do planche push ups
very hard

i’m building up my strength to get to these and will work on it in stages. much closer than i was 5 months ago, but no where near it.

Improve my posture
Getting better

I had a problem with this and it’s gotten much better this past year. Thinking back of how horrible my posture was is embarressing. Thankfully it has improved significantly. I won’t say this goal has been met as I sometimes catch myself slouch. For me it has been excercise and stretching thats helped me. I will continue to improve.

Read the "Grapes of Wrath"
My sister said it was great

My sister said this was a great book and have the whole summer ahead of me to read this. Now that it’s on my list, I’ll be reminded to read this start to finish.
