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’ve managed to go from nothing to being able to do 50 close push ups and 60 second crow stands so it’s definitely paying off. 2 years ago

I’ve finished week 3 of the 100 push up challenge and i’m going to take this opportunity to change direction from increasing stamina to improving my overall strength. The advice of a few different sources has led me to try Convict Conditioning which employs bodyweight training for this goal.

Specific : I’ll be working through the ‘Good Behaviour’ programme for now and this consists of workouts on alternate days. Unfortunately i’m unable to use my current pull up bar in the flat because the doorframes are too large and as such i’ve changed the pull up days to push ups.

Measurable : I’ll be following the progression steps laid out within CC and will only move to the next step when I can complete each WITH PERFECT FORM.

Attainable : I’ll be taking a slow approach to this goal and starting with steps at a level well below what i’m capable of in order to train my joints and to slowly work on perfect form over time.

Relevant : My goal all along has been to improve my appearance and build up strength. This is a great addition to achieve this end and can be easily achieved whilst working hard on medicine.

Time-limited : This goal has to be completed by 29.05.12 2 years ago
