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.

step 1.

i finally took my bike to the bike kitchen today. had a scheduling conflict and didn’t start on my bike until 30 minutes before closing, but i managed to get new tires. i thought everything was fine and dandy and was excited to start riding my bike, but upon further inspection, the volunteers there discovered that my brakes need to be changed. since i had run out of time and was running late for something else, i was forced to put that on hold. i’ll be busy for the next 2 weekends, but i hope to go back immediately when i’m free.

nixed the biking part.

getting my bike fixed and biking is actually two goals.. i enjoy checking things off of lists so to have two goals lumped into one makes the task seems a lot greater than it is. it’s all mental, really.

bicycle, bicycle!

i’m doing a project this term involving bicycles, and it’s forced me to search around for bikes. i already bought two old ones, and and im love with this purple “free spirit” one and have decided to keep it for myself. over spring/summer, i plan on taking it to the bike kitchen for a face lift so i can begin riding it!

i’ve always wanted to ride bikes around but have been too scared to do so. (i didn’t have one to begin with anyway.)
