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.

Stretch as much as I should

I’m trying to get into the routine of doing yoga 2 times a week and doing pilates two times a week, but sometimes my uni timetable doesn’t allow for a second session of yoga.
I’ve been going to yoga and pilates regularly (at least once a week) for 6 weeks now, my stomach definitely feels tighter and stronger from pilates, but I don’t feel much more flexible… it’s frustrating that I can’t touch my toes, I have good flexibility in my back and along the tops of my thighs, but my hamstrings When I sit with my legs out in front of my they pull my pelvis under me and then I have this big curve in my lower back. I hate my hamstrings! 6 years ago


I’ve done pilates 5 times in the past 2 weeks now, but I hadn’t really been stretching in between, I can do all the back stretches in class easily, so I must be quite flexible in my back. But I still can’t touch my toes, my pilates instructor says every one should be able to touch their toes and it’s pretty shocking that I can touch them :P I’ve never been able to do it, but I’d like to. Before pilates I could only reach the middle of shins -and that was after I’d warmed up and stretched my self out for a bit, last night I could grab my ankles after getting warm and stretchy, so hopefully I’ll be able to hold on to my toes soon. 6 years ago


Joined the uni gym and started doing pilates there, feeling veeeery stretch afterwards, except in my hamstrings… I have very tight hamstrings. Oooouch. 6 years ago
