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.

zhoustart from July3

I took the first yesterday afternoon, some coach has known me since I have been there for practising several years ago. This time I have a goal, and I attend a lesson that can take to black belt in three years. The coach told me that I have to take classes at least three times per week, I promised it and asked them also to supervise me and be strict with me. I hope I can have an improvment soon. 3 years ago

Ben ByrneOn and off

I’m currently a member of the ITF (International Taekwondo federation)but had to stop attending sessions due to other financial needs. I used to, and will again, study under Darrin Bodfield a 8th dan black belt international instructor from Northampton.
It is one of the hardest workouts you can imagine and one of the most for-filling things a person can do. Regardless of age and fitness you can join a Taekwondo school as long as you have the correct insurance, which a good instructor should set up for you. Just have a search in google for groups in your area and give them a call, most instructors charge around 30 quid a month, so if you can afford it, stop talking about it and do it! 3 years ago

jbguy75I wish I still did this.

I started taking Tae Kwon Do while in high school. It was a lot of fun and it was challenging. I studied Mudukwon Tae Kwon Do and earned my second degree Red belt (just one belt away from black). I have to say that this is one of my proudest achievements in life. After my second year in college I had to give it up because of my financial status and the inability to find a school that met my expectations. I wish I was still doing this and Will get my Black belt before I die. 5 years ago

sakuracallingI've started Taekwondo...

I took my very first class today. It seems to be me and a bunch of school kids and I’ve a feeling my Korean will have to improve pretty quickly… but I loved it, just need to keep up going three times a week. 5 years ago

JohnYellow belt

I was presented with my yellow belt last week. The test went well. I’ve learned two new forms and am looking forward to progressing. I’m having a blast too! 5 years ago

Eford0141st Don

I had my black belt testing at the start of December, and I have passed. I am now an instructor, and I have been concentrating on helping families who decide to join. This has marked a very special time in my life and things are all falling together. My wife and I are now expecting a baby, and could not be happier. Tae Kwon Do has done so much for me, and I love training and instructing. 5 years ago


Had class again last night. I’m really enjoying it so far and glad I got off my ass to do it. 6 years ago


Had class tonight. I don’t have a uniform yet, but I sure am busting my ass and feeling it. Fun stuff. 6 years ago
