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.

Cycled roughly 40 miles over the weekend. Going to play tennis today. Have been keeping up with my pushups/curls/presses but not as frequent since other physical activity has increased (mostly due to warmer weather). Will continue to do what I’m doing! 7 months ago


Today I did 61 consecutive push ups, the most I’ve done thus far since starting this goal. When I first start I could only do 20-30 at a time, so HUGE improvement. Also my shoulders and biceps are getting a little more defined from curls and shoulder presses/raises. Need to start focusing on stomach a bit.

All things considered I’m very happy with my progress for this goal. I don’t think I’ve missed a day of push ups since I started. Current daily number of push ups: ~100-125. 8 months ago


Haven’t updated in a few days, wanted to give myself a little slack. Have been doing 33+1×3 push ups each day for at least 100 a day (have usually been a set more). Also went out and bought a 20lb dumbbell for arm/shoulder exercises. Will keep doing what I’m doing, starting to notice a difference in my chest. 8 months ago


Have already done 33×2 push ups today, along with some curls and shoulder flys. Will try to do 33×2 before bed. 9 months ago


Did 34 push ups when I woke, some curls and shoulder flys. Was an idiot last night and didn’t do the 30 before bed. Will make it up throughout the day.

Going to start doing 33×2 and 34×1 to get an even 100 out of 3 sets. Planning on adding a few more to the routine throughout the week. Would be really nice to get to 50 push ups a set. 9 months ago


Did 30 when I woke up, as well as 30 just now. Will do another 30 jsut before bed. 9 months ago

CharlesW893/22 End of Day

Between the initial set of 30 when I woke up and now, I’ve done another 30×4, totaling 150 push ups for the day. Will do another 30 just before I go to bed, totaling 180 for the day. 9 months ago


Woke up and did 30. Stretched for a few minutes. Very relaxing. 9 months ago
