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 how to swim properly (read all 3 entries…)
A thousand mile journey...

Went for a swim tonight with a friend who used to swim competitively. Managed to have fun for over two hours, but didn’t make as much progress as I wanted. At least I got over my fear of the gym pool. Plan on going again on Friday and working on my form some more. My freestyle is just silly. I have major issues with my breathing pattern (I’m a nose inhaler and mouth exhaler and swimming requires the reverse) and also that I just don’t like to stick my head far into the water so my legs and butt kind of sink. I must be a riot to watch. I’m just glad to finally have started. It only gets better from here.



I’ve added this goal to my list. I’ve been meaning to work on my swimming so that I could eventually do a triathalon. I guess commiting to the swimming would be the first step! Yay! :)
