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.

Start horse riding again (read all 7 entries…)
So far so good ;o)

In my case – the quicker decision, the better effect.
I`ve asked on Tuesday, and today I ended up on a huge horse.

First impression – not good. My instructor apparently wasn`t informed that she`ll deal with a total beginner (I can`t say I have any experience after a break that lasted 20 years or so…). She was surprised that I didn`t have a proper outfit and that I know nothing about… anything connected with horses. But somehow we managed to sort it out and I had an hour long introducting lesson:o). My instructor seemed harsh at first, but after a few minutes I got used to her way of being and teaching. And I think THAT king of teacher will be the best for me.
I ended up extremely tired but satisfied and happy. And as soon as I came back to the stable with the horse I was riding, I`ve signed up for a second lesson, next week :o)!


EverydayFairy has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
