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'm shaking...

I just signed up for my first 2 hour lesson! It’s next tuesday! I feel like I have so much to do between now and then!


Pat C You'd think I'd know better!

Good luck Rebel

Sounds like you have a plan. Keeping the bike out of the city till you get comfy on the bike. Just stay safe out there. Get yourelf a good helmet and the proper clothes to ride in. Don’t forget good set of gloves that allow you a good feel of the controls! Remember anyone can ride fast, the trick is to be able to ride Slow. Master SLOW riding and it will make everything else come easier. Balance is the key to good bike control. Have a great time, and get used to the feeling. When I ride even on my way to work after all this time I still feel it! Keep us up to date on your progress.



I want to:
