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.

Cassandra_17So far so good!

After a rough start in the new year (school exams, lost bathing suit…), I have finally been able to commit to this goal. Every Wednesday I swim laps for three hours and it feels great! I am finding it to be quite a large consumer of my time as the whole process start to finish takes about five hours (transportation, changing, showering, drying hair, etc…). Despite this, I am pushing forward and hope to achieve my goal :) 4 years ago

JenniferStarted swimming again after 2 weeks...

I missed a couple of weeks due to a vacation to FL. Doesn’t make sense right? Well, the weather was way to cold to swim outdoors and I didn’t have access to a local indoor pool. Now that I am in MI visiting family I was able to go to the YMCA for community swim days and plan to go twice weekly. I also prepaid for a prenatal swimming course, but I am the only person registered so the class may cancel. I enjoyed swimming today and look forward to doing some more laps in the near future. 4 years ago

JenniferWent to a water aerobics class tonight...

It was a great workout and I met some great ladies. It was an hour long workout. I had to do a couple modified versions due to the pregnancy (safety stuff) but, the instructor gave me great alternatives. I will def. go again. ;) 4 years ago

JenniferHad a great time swimming laps today...

JenniferPrenatal Exercise

I picked up the local leisure center swim schedule and look forward to swimming at least weekly. It will be good for baby and me. 4 years ago

GavetNext summer!

I missed a few weeks and the public pool here is now closed so I feel like I failed this goal. I’ll try again next year! It is easier during the beginning of summer. 6 years ago

GavetMy Family's Small Local Pool

While I was in New York we spent a few days by the pool and thus I did complete this goal last week. The last time I went the water was freezing when I first went in but I was sun-dried quickly. Later on, the water was the perfect temperature but when I got out there was no sun so I sat there with goosebumps for over an hour before we ate. 6 years ago

GavetDetour Route to New Jersey's State Park

Kevin and me went to High Point on Saturday. I was so cold that I started to laugh hysterically. I enjoyed digging my feet into the sand at the bottom of the lake. We went for two dips in the lake. 6 years ago


Last weekend it was the YMCA pool, this weekend the beach!! - (But I think I do more floating around like a jellyfish than actual “swimming”.) Surprisingly fun & relaxing to do something with my body, just paddling around in the water with no thinking involved at all. 6 years ago
