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.

- The Robots.

My weight has been falling off lately due to much better diet and no binge eating, so I need to start making the effort to exercise! 7 months ago

Kaz_DancingSkype Yoga!

I had my first PT Skype yesterday, it so strange but awesome. My husbands cousin is an amazing instructor and skyped me through a 45 minute lovely session. 21 months ago


It’s so easy to knock this goal over, because there are so many fantastic places in this city to walk! I never get bored and I always look forward to walking! I keep finding all these little pockets in the city with amazing commissioned art pieces I never even knew existed.

Tonight I’ve organised to walk with some friends, it’s important because I’m always so tempted to stay at work, but not tonight, I’m going to get out for sure!! 22 months ago

I’m trying really hard not to go mental with this goal. I have a tendency to go nuts, then stop. I’ve done it my whole life, I go through the periods of working out 8 days a week, then I just stop. I’m trying to make excercise fun, and make sure I’m making it realistic and reasonable so I don’t go mental. That being said, I am obsessed with dancing at the moment and I can’t keep dancing until I lose weight, and dancing makes me lose weight. LOL22 months ago


Ouch. Zumba and salsa in the same week – bad idea!! 22 months ago

Kaz_DancingTwice was salsa

Started my week with an hours walk and catch up with some ladies walking round the river. It was lovely, blissful weather, perfect. Then had Japanese with my husband. Wonderful night. 23 months ago

bloemI tried...

but I just don’t enjoy working out! Sure, in the summer I love jogging, and I love doing yoga, but is that really hardcore excercise? I don’t know. But in an attempt to clear up my list I decided to get rid of this goal. I’m never going to do it anyway, probably because I just don’t really, really want to. 2 years ago

I began training for Thai Boxing twice a week a few months ago. I had an amateur fight coming up last month and my instructor recommended me to start running to build up my stamina. I carried this on after my fight, and now train twice a week and run once. It makes me feel good about myself knowing that my exercise is helping me build up my fitness. 3 years ago

I need an alternative for running, so I tried poweryoga yesterday. Man, that was really hard, but really great! I enjoyed that so much! Couldn’t do everything because of my ankle (when does the hurting stop…) but I was still able to do most of it. I felt awesome afterwards! 3 years ago

bloemEasy on the excercise

I was doing so incredibly well on this, until I sprained my ankle and tore my ligaments, 5 weeks ago. And since recovery needs a lot of energy (and well, frankly, I just couldn’t excercise properly because I was on crutches) I can’t excercise fully anymore. Even Pilates of Yoga wears me out so much more than normally. And lots of moves just put too much strain on my ankle, so I really have to be careful.
I miss it though, so I hope I can get back to it soon… 3 years ago
