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.

move to hawaii
Holy shit...I did it!

Today, after nearly 4 years of trying, keeping it in my consciousness, failing, not believing, then focusing all of my energy on one singular end, I’m here, typing from a magical farm on Oahu. It’s surreal.

I’ve had some out of body experiences that last for a moment, but never a whole day like today. As I typed that, the version of “Over the Rainbow” by Hawaiian artist Israel ‘IZ’ Kamakawiwo’ole came on. No way! My life is totally synchronous.

My host picked me up, and took me sailing in Kaneohe Bay before I even got to the farm. And the farm? I feel like I’m in a movie. The farm is on a mountain that overlooks another mountain. Aside from you normal papayas, avacados, and other Hawaiian greatness growing, we have cacao growing here, and they make their own chocolate.

Really? Is this my life? REALLY?

I’m about to go to sleep, and don’t want to. My dreams will pale in comparison.

weigh less than 200 lbs
I'd be 12.5% body fat

I’m right about 175 pounds of lean mass, so if I don’t lose any (I shouldn’t), I can get to just under 200 without being excessive.

Hmmm…I can turn this into a Blog entry? I should have written something worth reading by others…maybe.

become a senator
Do I really want to do this?

This is a test for

Do I really want to become a senator? You cannot play in dirt without getting dirty yourself, right?

And for the hell of it, I’m attaching a picture of downtown St. Petersburg, FL. I took it today as I was flying around a little.
