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.

run 2 miles without stopping (read all 2 entries…)

Well I was on lap numero 6 when I stopped when I went running the other day. Ima go tonight and see if I could improve on that

run 2 miles without stopping (read all 2 entries…)

I’ve been running since April (The conditioning coach for Tennis made us run 2 miles…with a 15 minute break in between though). I feel a lot more fit because of it, but I want to do 2 miles.

I’ve been going to the HS track at 7 every night to run, and so far I can only do 1 1/4 miles without stopping. I just look so forward to finishing that next lap that I have to stop. It’s hard to keep on going when you start breathing really heavily and your heart is pounding.

I’m in shape, but I don’t have the greatest endurance. Hopefully I’ll achieve this one before the end of summer

Not care what other people think
It's easier said than done

I know that people aren’t judging you when you act your complete self, but I feel like the way you act casts you in a type they may not like. I hate not being liked by someone so I tend to be reserved at first when meeting new people. I take every small comment about me to heart, and sometimes it can hurt. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I have lots of friends I act myself around. It’s just that I want to be myself around every body. I care what people think about what I wear, what I do, etc. This has held me back a little. I’ve improved lots this past year in achieving this goal. I just want to keep working on it. I know I can do it. It’ll just take some time…

See all entries ...


I want to:
