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.

jimrinYou can do anything on your last day at work...

Sorry I have not been around lately. It’s a long, long, long, long story. I’ll update you on it. Oh wait, I can’t as 43T is being shut down.

However, it’s not my last day at work, but as an analogy, on my last day of using 43T, I thought I would post an update of my progress.

Even after August 15, I can update the source of the photo and it will update here. Thus, since 43T will actually be available in “read only” until the end of the year, I can post more updates to the photo if I make more progress this year.

While I am still far away from my goal, actually achieving only approximately 50% of my goal so far, I’m thinking if this is what I look like achieving only 50% of my goal, I’m hoping for even better results if I hit 100%. Even with 43T being shutdown, I am motivated to hit my goal.

I wish all of you continued success with all of your goals! 4 months ago

feetaswheelsPragmatic Shape

I didn’t want to get in shape to look good naked or impress anyone. I did it so I could live my life without worrying about heart problems and having to sit down every 20 minutes. To that end, endless hours of cardio (largely through basketball), long distance backpacking (great for pretty much the entire body), and designed exercises (farmer’s walks, bear crawls, etc) were imperative in achieving this for me. 8 months ago


i’ve just started walking around the block, totally doable when you’re sick and in flip flops too :) 8 months ago

ElzaARunning and Cycling

I think that running probably is the best cardio exercise, I love that i had the couradge to get out and run. There isn’t many people who run where I live.

And cycling is the best transport to school. It’s faster than walking and sometimes even waiting for bus + I can get fitter in the same time. 8 months ago


I want to get into this again. I was injured for a week, turned out I had tendonitis. After that, I got ill and also had problems with my ankle. So, things haven’t been great for me in that respect. However, I plan on starting off again on Tuesday. 8 months ago

ElzaAI'm back!

Few days ago I just really got sick with my lack of physical abilities, so today I sign up to Fitocracy.

It’s like a game .You have a workout and then you track what you did, they give you points for that and you even level up! 9 months ago
