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.

After 3 bad weeks, I’m back to meeting this goal again with ease. I love doing yoga.

Forgot the mat!

I forgot to pack the mat and didn’t end up doing any yoga on our CA vacation. Did tons of walking, which is good, but not yoga. I can’t make myself do it today, either. Maybe this evening I will do the relaxation routine.

Last week: failure

For the last six weeks, I’ve met this goal … but all of last week, all I did was clean at the house. It was very good exercise, but it wasn’t yoga, which I like for the stretching and mental focus. I need to get back into it! I plan to pack my yoga mat for our vacation.

Accomplished this week ... and for good!

Week of 5/13-5/19: 4 sessions yoga

I’ve accomplished this goal five weeks in a row, and seven out of the last nine weeks. I love doing yoga, and find it easy and fun to do on my own in my living room. I have a variety of DVD routines now to suit my mood, and that helps. Donald says he notices all kinds of changes in my body, especially in my arms toning up. I have noticed changes too, since I started yoga-ing in March. I’m much closer to really reaching certain poses properly – notably, getting my heels all the way down in downward dog. I look forward to continuing to do yoga.

Accomplished this week!

Week of 5/6-5/12: 4 sessions yoga

Accomplished this week!

Week of 4/29-5/5: 3 sessions yoga

I am loving doing yoga. Donald was asking if it relaxes me. Since I usually do it in the morning, it’s not relaxing, but more energizing. It gives me a chance to focus and clear my mind of all the piled-up worries of the previous day and night. I feel more productive when I start the day with yoga. I hope to get myself to a point where I just do it every day, no matter what.

Accomplished this week!

The new yoga DVDs I have are great, and I can’t wait to really get into them. This will be a good yoga week coming up. I did well last week, but I’m glad to have new stuff to work on.

Week of 4/22-4/28: 1 hour yoga, 2 sessions

April 25

I did great last week! See?

Week of 4/15-4/21: 2 hours, 15 minutes of yoga, 3 sessions

I’m really enjoying yoga, and I ordering some more DVDs so I’ll have alternate routines to mix up.

April 16

If not for vacation, I would have made it this week. I meant to take the DVD to Toronto with us and do the yoga in the hotel room, but I’m kind of glad I didn’t. It was nice to relax a little while.

Week of 4/8-4/14: 55 minutes yoga, 1 session

April 11

Whew! I just tried the yoga DVD that came with my yoga kit. I got about 2/3 through before giving up … that thing is NOT for beginners. Now I have a nice warm buzz in my muscles, and I’ll do Sara Ivanhoe’s energizing routine (which is much more my level) to keep from getting too tight. Still … whew! Better shelve that one until I’m really good.
