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.

practice yoga 7 times in 7 days
Today was day 2

Thanks for the invite! Glad to be a part of your 7-day challenge.

Today was day 2… ouch. No really… ouch. My damn pride keeps pushing me from discomfort to pain. Tomorrow morning I’ll do my best to be more mindful of my pride, and remember to just start where I am, not where I was before the accident.

Glad to see you’re all doing well.

Love to you all!

Second week - back in training (FINALLY)

Ok, so I kind of had to abandon the yoga thing for a while to sort out other stuff.. but hey, such is life.

I realized that getting practice in after work wasn’t going to do it for me since my schedule is constantly double booked with social stuff… Sooo, I had to get into classes at 6:30am… OUCH! But, I’ve been doing it… which surprizes me… but it’s starting to feel good.

My goal is to continue going to classes twice a week (tues and thurs) – just to make it a regular thing. I’ll see where it goes from there.

Have to admit – the body both hates it and loves it… thank god for hot tubs!

one thing at a time...

ok, so i’ve been totaly slak on my practice for the past couple months… but in my defence, I took that time to tackle a greater challenge – and I’m happy to say that I haven’t had a cigarette in almost 2 months now! now THAT was a challenge!

Now that I want to get back into yoga, as it turns out, I broke my hand and have just been fitted with a cast… Oh well – such is life I guess – just got to roll with it.

Thankfully, I have a couple friends who instruct – and I’m going to see if they would be kind enough to help me put together a ‘cast friendly’ program next week.

Still here, still reading the entries, still cheering from the sidelines.

Tashi deley,
