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.

Crash Course in Progress

I have been on the Crash Course the last couple of evenings. I still fear that I will drown (like that is possible in like 1.5m of water!).

I enjoy floating in the water, but hate it when it gets into my nose/ears/eyes… ewww

I have 2 more classes to go. I am hoping I will have got rid of my fear of drowning at least by that point.

The fact that you are in the water at all is a great feat!! Once you know how to float, and start treading water on your own, you will relax and realize that you have the control over whether you drown or not. You learning how to swim decreases your chances of drowning by a million!

You can do it!

btw….I have a crazy fear of driving, and that I will get into a car accident, so I completely understand what fears can do to us..

Thank You!

Thank you sooo much for your kind words :) I did it today – swam a lap without any of those floaters. I did stop in between… but I learned to stand up. And it was far better than what I felt before.

It was a big leap from couple of days ago. And I am glad I did it!

You are welcome!!! Woww that is amazing!!!! sooner or later you will be doing laps and not have to stop :) once you master floating, you will realize that you can even stop in the deep end and just float there if you have to! :P

Keep swimming in the shallow end until you are ready one day to swim to the deep end all on your own! also.. swim outside of these classes as well. Practice makes perfect :)
