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.

Zip lines Kauai style

I think I should have done zip lining before I took a surfing lesson, because ziping was kind of a let down compared to the waves. However, I still had a great time flying through the air in a tropical forest. The first line was a bit scary, but only in the way that something new is scary, and the whole flying in a harness thing.

The last line of the day was my favorite. 1200 feet in tandem with a friend racing style. I won against my partner and managed to take a video with my camera and stop myself at the platform all at once.

It was a great experience, but I doubt I’d do it again. Surfing gets my vote in the end.


I want to:
