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.

Join a gym and start to go regularly has been a goal since arround 2008. Before that, I was never a fan of exercising and having a healthy diet.
Back then, my sister joined a gym and there she used to take Muay Thai classes. When she started to talk about becoming professional, my mother became afraid and said she couldn’t pay for it anymore, because she had no money for it (we knew this was a lie, since she was buying superfluous stuff).
Because of that, I couldn’t join too. If she had paid for me, she would have to admit she had lied before.
Now I plan on joining a gym as soon as I have my own money to do so. 19 months ago

GeorgieI will count this goal complete...

when I have managed to go to the gym at least once a week for a month. 22 months ago

GeorgieMet with a personal trainer and sorted a workout plan.

I explained that I am increeeedibly unfit and haven’t really exercised since I left school so they set me off with the following workout plan:

10 minutes warm up on the treadmill
  • 2 sets of 12 walking lunges
  • Jump squats
  • 5 minutes on cross trainer, alternate difficulty levels
  • Dumbbell triceps overhead extension
  • Dumbbell biceps curl
  • 5 minute run on treadmill
  • Medicine ball Russian twist
  • Reverse crunch

My gym induction went really well – I admitted that I was pretty much a newbie to everything and they were very understanding. I’m meeting with my personal trainer on Thursday to work out a routine that would be good for me and fit in with my limited free time.

I also tried a zumba class at the gym which has pretty much killed me. I didn’t realise I was so unfit! 22 months ago
