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.

Dance the warrior, the warrior


I figured it was high time to scribe an entry for this long-awaited goal…

Wouldn’t I, a nimbly, bimbly girl of college-age, want nothing more than to teach yogahhh ? Well…maybe. But how freeing this practice is. I’d love to devote a lot of my time to teaching everyone the poses and mediation of this ancient practice.

Anyone who knows me has seen me break out into a pose whenever my back starts to ache, or sink into the Lotus position to meditate whenever I get a mind’s peace.

I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t devote this to a full-time career, but maybe something one the side, like Paul’s co-worker Pam, who teaches a half-hour class on her lunch. I think I’d like to be certified, just to be certified, so I can open myself up to new job opportunities and personal experiences.

Ash has gotten 147 cheers on this goal.
