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.

Hell yes!

My new place in upstate New York is literally a half-block from Bikram yoga and I’m stoked. They have an introductory offer I intend to make good use of. Everything in town does good discounts for students, so perhaps they do too. Regardless, there’s absolutely no excuse anymore since I’ll be practically living next door to a Bikram studio. I’m so happy! :-)

Haven't been in a while...

I haven’t been since December, and with all the exercising I’m doing I am starting to feel a little tight. I know the best remedy for this is Bikram, but I’m having a hard time drumming up the enthusiasm to go. This is in direct proportion to how much DD I consume. I have got to quit that stuff – it’s like liquid crack.

Bikram Saturdays at 10 am...

is the place to be in Fort Lauderdale. The teacher, Tony, has been practicing for twenty years and it shows. His physical strength is duly noted and his style of teaching is impeccable. It was the best class I’ve ever had, and I plan on becoming a Saturday morning devotee.

Two classes in.

I’m happy to be back. Bikram yoga gives me an incredible physical, emotional, and psychological boost. As much as I want to stay away, I think I’m starting to like it again. I think I’m going to do this a la rehab: 28 classes, and I’ll consider myself back and therefore this goal completed. My reward will be that new Bikram yoga sticker slapped on the back of the Jeep, and hearing more of that ‘Did you lose weight?’ thing.

I'm running out of excuses.

This is about the only thing you can do in South Florida that’s actually hotter inside than it is outside. It’s $300 for 30 classes, which will last me quite a while if I can go three times a week. Going every day is just too much, but my patience for having tacked on all this weight is wearing thin. I know I take a lot of pride in being a bubba, but in reality I’m pretty cosmopolitan. Bikram yoga suits me.

Monday (before group): 6:15 PM

Wednesday (before class): 4:30 PM

Friday: 4:30 PM or 6:15 PM

The morning classes make me way too dizzy as I can’t get enough H2O in my system before I get there (that I learned the hard way). But I can tell you definitively that Dunkin’ Donuts is not helping me achieve my goal of losing weight! (Imagine that.)


I ran into my Bikram teacher tonight in Whole Foods. She asked where the hell I’ve been. Time to go back!
