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.

- The Robots.

get a 6 pack
What I want just the vertical line definition down the middle.
I dont need a full on six pack.

It’s fat on the lower stomach that the main problem. I think thats more about cardio that ab exercises but I am doing both.

Need to keep sucking in the belly button throughout the day – better posture has got to help strengthen these abs.

do one hundred consecutive push-ups
Starting out

Did 20 full ‘guy’ pushups (no knees) – there’s a looooong way to go to 100!!!
It helped to have the Ipod on. I wonder how long it’s gonna take if I do it every night –
Does anyone know?

At least I ran three miles without stopping for the first time tonight.

Getting fitter one step at a time.

exhibit my paintings
The end of Procrastination...

It started as a wonderful hope, then began to get tainted from the pressure of my whole life hinging on the dream of making money from my art…talk about a creativity killer.
Now I’m getting back to painting for the enjoyment of it. I really want to start showing. I feel I might have something to say at last now I’m 33!
