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.

So it's been a while..

Had an impromptu cartwheel lesson yesterday. I was in a beautiful space in the Kangaroo Valley for a medatitive workshop. During our lunch break I made a throw away comment about being in such a lovely space and having the desire to do a cartwheel but have never actually been able in my life. A lovely yoga instructor who also attended the retreat heard my comment and immediately had me on the ground teaching me how to do it. I have to say – I came the closest I ever have to doing a cartwheel. Really funny, really silly… I liked it.


I did another tumbling seminar tonight and raised the issue of cartwheels and it is now on the agenda.


Tumbling class today...

Being “Funday Friday” lets see if we can play around a bit! I’m trying to learn to do catrolls and falls etc from these tumbling classes but I am going to hassle them about learning cartwheels too.

Just attempted

wasn’t good…. ouch my back!

I’ll get there – I need to shed some weight though.
