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.

Renewed motivation

I have been to a workshop this past weekend with Mark Whitwell, and as I had hoped, it has helped me to remember the love, joy, and clarity that yoga used to bring to my life. My mind had gotten so cluttered with the surging popularity of yoga and the associated expectations that come along with it (what a yogi should be, what a yoga teacher should be, what you should get out of practice, what poses should always be done, etc). I got so caught up in the shoulds that I didn’t want to bother with it anymore!

But through the practices and conversations this past weekend, I realize that it’s just so simple. Just a little breath and movement for the sheer joy of it – because it makes you feel good and it makes everything else in your day so much better. There’s nothing else to it! Just breathe and move and feel good and know that everything is okay. THAT is something I can get motivated to do!
