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.

F@ck It!

Too damn dangerous!

Mission Impossible

There is NO safe way to ride a bike to Starbucks! But I am a Starbucks addict, a junkie for the java! Just as the sea lion braves the great white shark, I will brave the route to Starbucks so that I can indulge my addition.

What does this to people?

The most hostile people on the face of the earth are drivers speeding towards their local Starbucks! If you doubt me, just try riding your bicycle to Starbucks next time. They will run your ass over!

Is it the java addiction and associated withdraws? Is it something about Starbucks and cars? Is it my lycra and spandex?

Why do they try to run me down when I go to Starbucks?

The Java Death Ride

Where I live the most dangerous ride for a 30 mile radius is a 8.54 mile ride to Starbucks. A nice warm-up before a longer ride, but the traffic is horrendous and all of the drivers seem to hate bikes on their road. I guess it is because the traffic is so thick that the bikes are moving faster than the cars.

There has to be a better route!

Changing MyLife has gotten 11 cheers on this goal.
