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.

Getting focused on this goal again. I’ve started volunteering in exchange for classes at another yoga studio, this time closer to my place so I don’t have to go out of my way. It’s only a block from my office!



I took a ballet class at a yoga studio yesterday...

...does that count? It was a beginners class and I held my own until combination steps and counting. Apparently I have no coordination. I think I could master it with practice.

Haven't volunteered or gone to class in forever!

Tonight I’m going to a ballet class though…. Yoga is something that will eventually be a part of my lifestyle. I’ll get there. I know I want it. The desire will make me achieve.

I skipped volunteering this week...

...maybe I’ll go to a class tonight. Although I skipped this week, last week instead of volunteering one day I did it three days, a total of 17 or more hours. That’s more than 4 times as much I have committed to volunteering. Now I have to take advantage of all the free classes I’ve accumulated! I’ve only taken 1 class so far. I MUST start doing this more regularly.

I'm off to volunteer in just a little bit...

And I have a class coming to me from last week’s volunteering as I went out of town for Thanksgiving and wasn’t able to make it to a class last week. I also think I’m going to go to the community classes because they’re donation only. It costs $17 for a yoga class at the studio I volunteer at! Volunteering at the yoga studio is a great way to start the week Monday mornings.

just got home from my first class ever!

I tried Kundalini Yoga. I didn’t know that was an intensive one! There were a few things I couldn’t do but I tried anyway and did everything to the best of my ability. It was great.

volunteering was fun

It’s definitely not hard… actually I didn’t do much. I am excited about being able to contribute and I haven’t taken my first class yet but I will get to it soon. I volunteer again on Monday. This is the place I’m volunteering at:

AWESOME progress!

Today I signed up to volunteer at a yoga center! I work a 4-hr shift tomorrow helping w/cleaning, reception and administrative duties – however I can be of assistance. In exchange for that I get to take free classes. As of yet I’ve never participated in a yoga class in my life, just read about it recently and have been doing a little daily at home… I feel this will be the perfect community for me to get involved.

Still doing some every day...

But I do want to get more serious about it. I’m really just doing a few basics. I haven’t made it all the way through the ‘Yoga for Dummies’ book yet. A friend of mine is a certified instructor and we keep meaning to do it together. I really feel she could give me some direction with it. I do feel like it is helping me get more limber.
