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.

I work on my Abs now. They are definitely stronger, the definition will come soon enough. 5 months ago

roost88Gotta do it...

I hate working my abs because it hurts so goddamn much, but I gotta just “suck it up” and get this done. 2 years ago


My tummy is almost flat again!

Zumba is really fun though. My mom bought it as a birthday present to herself. 4 years ago

Worked on my abs for the first time this month. I plan on doing this every night before I go to bed.

My mom bet that she’d beat me to getting abs first. I highly doubt that, cause I’m almost there. Ahaha. 4 years ago

vylimeemilySort of

I did 100 crunches last night! Let’s see if I can keep this up. Wish me luck, ha! 4 years ago

Ashley S.Work on my abs

Something that I’ve done on and off for years now. This time I want to stick with it. It’s going to be something very easy to do since I have no belly fat so that’s an awesome start. I just need to push and motivate myself. Woo! 4 years ago

joie de vivreRekindling this goal

I’m going to set a baseline tonight, and then see what my new goal is going to be.

Edited to add: I could do 125 without stopping. And they’re honest ones, not the kind that just exercise my neck :-). I’m only a teeny sore this morning, so that should be my baseline.

The problem is that doing sit-ups is incredibly dull. I might try to do them to music or something, because doing 200 sit-ups in a session is rather off-putting. 6 years ago
