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.

I started doing pushups the other day and then stopped again. If I intend to start rock climbing again this would probably be a good thing to stick with.

One step at a time...

Well, Suzi and I started walking today. We brought water and wandered the streets for about an hour, pausing to look at spider webs and butterflies and sit on a random bench swing in someone’s front yard before bolting when their garage door started to open.

We tell ourselves that we’ll do it twice a week and move up to four times a week and who knows what after that but with our track record I have my doubts. We’ve probably made plans to work out together on a regular basis more than a dozen times before now and each time we’ve petered out before getting around to doing whatever we had originally intended for the third time.

So this is once. I’ll keep my hopes up for a lasting thing but I ain’t holding my breath when we’re both such flakes in the exercise department.
