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 stronger than the average man
My Targets

I found this information online. Being a 20 year old girl, I would like to be stronger than the average man as I’ll soon be working in a male dominated industry.

“height = 5’8 – 5’10
weight = 160 – 180 lbs.
bench press (max) = 135 – 185 lbs.
deadlift (max) = 185 – 235 lbs.
squat (max) = 185 – 235 lbs.
bicep curl (max double) = 60 – 100 lbs.
bicep curl (max single) = 30 – 50 lbs.

Time it takes the average guy to run a mile: 8 minutes, 34 seconds
Amount he can bench-press: 135 pounds
Number of situps he can do: 36
Pushups: 27
Pullups: 1 “



Find my Grandad
Is this disrespectful?

I want to find my biological Grandad. I know he was American. His first name was Jeremy. My Mum was adopted, and never knew him, and has no interest in finding out who he was. But I do. I want to tell him that he gave up an amazing kid, and she had amazing children too, and this year his daughter beat cancer and his eldest grandchild (or I guess I’m his eldest.. who knows) has just started university.



start volunteering in England
My Volunteer Work

Over the years, I feel I’ve done a lot of volunteering in other countries. I’m interested now in trying to find some volunteer work in my own country. I’m interested in LGBT issues, and am also interested in education for people in prison.
