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.

I want to be able to do 50 consecutive military push-ups. Right now, I can do at least 20 before I lose motivation and stop and if I take a short break I can crank out 10 more.

I’ll try to approach this goal by doing push-ups on my strength training days, and force myself to do at least 20 and then do as many more as I can.

I’ll keep working on this one 2 years ago

So I was standing on the scale the other day and it turns out I gained 4 pounds. But It’s not weight… because my waistline is the same. (plus it’s almost physically impossible for me to gain weight… x__x I’ve tried.) Could it be….muscle? gasp

It might be because I’ve been doing a ton of core strengthening exersizes from my Physical therapy. (planks, situps, pushups ect.)

But the problem is that the 4 new pounds have made it incresingly harder to do anymore pushups than I already can do.

I’m just gonna have to keep at it. 3 years ago

I can now do 30 knee pushups and about 15 regular pushups. I think the planks that I’m doing are helping. 3 years ago
