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.

Bike 1000kms before the end of the summer (read all 6 entries…)
A Good Amount of Bike Riding

I just realized that I hadn’t crossed this goal off or updated it for a while, but it was completed. The total number of kilometers for this year by the beginning of October was 1165 km. To be more technical for the summer it would be 1093 km.
It was a lot of fun and I think that it will be a regular thing. I miss biking now that there is snow on the ground.

I purchased a

Speedometer/odometer for my bike. Your post reminded me that it’s in the drawer. It is also motivating me to keep record of my mileage ; ) Once the snow is off the ground, we’re in business again~

That’s great!
It made a big difference when I started tracking how far I went as it was a good way to see some progress aside from feeling good and being outside a lot.
I can’t wait for the snow to go away and start biking again!

I'm with you on being ready

For bike riding again!

loveinthecure FOCUS - I AM FOCUS. I LOVE FOCUS.

I wonder if I can

get my whole family to get out there and ride in the next few months. Keeping track might ignite the interest in my boys…..hummmmm. Congrats on reaching your goal CC.

It’s great when you can have people to bike with. For me it provides a bit of extra motivation and it is good because it’s a shared goal which is why 43 Things works well too!
Good luck!

Go for it!

It’s too slippery and snowy and I don’t have snow tires for the bike.

But spring will be here soon.
