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.

Learn to surf (read all 5 entries…)
hang tight...er...ten

This won’t happen for a while. I live no where near any place that is surfable. I think the closest place is Kalahari water park. They have a Flowrider. So the next time I go to the ocean, I need to set up surf lessons. I refuse to leave the ocean until I successfully ride at least 3 waves. Why 3? 1 and 2 could just be luck.
This could be a dangerous goal. Surfing is one of those things that gets into your blood. When you see waves, you have to ride them. It’s all you can think about during your day and at the end of the day, it’s all that matters. I could possibly drive me to move to the ocean. Just like this rock climbing jazz is driving me to a rockier location. Cali would be nice. But not popular Cali. Somewhere unheard of but still coastal. Some place with enough rocks to keep my hands chalked up and enough ocean to keep my feet wet. That’d be cool…

California keeps coming up lately.

I think it’s a sign. A sign that I need to go to California. It’s strange because before a few months ago, I hated the thought of going there. But all of a sudden, I can’t get it out of my head. If I had the time and money, I’d take a road trip out there ASAP. If only…
