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.

Once again postponing

Once again I have to put this off till next winter. There’s some snow on the ground right now, but in general we’re in warming-up mode here. I definitely won’t have an opportunity to go snowboarding before the current snow melts, so…next winter.


...this looks like it is not going to happen this year. Or at least not till next winter. Oh well.

SMART Goal Details

I want to go snowboarding to improve my skill and have fun. This could be satisfied by getting practice on local hills or by going to Berkshire East.

Go snowboarding, ideally at Berkshire East (or similar)

Yes. Going to Berkshire East will cost more (and be an obstacle) if I don’t get my snowboard adjusted.

Randy and I have talked about it and somewhat budgeted for a trip to Berkshire East.

Pretty much has to be done by end of March for 2011.

This may be something I can do at the end of the year...

but for now, there are no more opportunities on the horizon.


Yeah this is officially shelved until next winter. :(

I am going to work on getting more fit before then, so I’ll be less afraid I’m going to fall and break something!


I suspect this is going to stay on my “to do” list until next Winter. There was almost no snow this winter and what there has been has not inspired me to hit the slopes. I know there are snow making machines but they don’t seem to be very effective at the place near me.


...that would require some snow. Curse you, global warming.
