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.

sing with Bobby McFerrin
Singing with 300 soul singers is a helluva way to raise your vibration!

I attended Bobby McFerrin’s Circlesongs workshop at Omega. It was amazing. It was so much more than I expected. We sang and danced and sang some more. We also grew. As individuals, and as a community. We learned important things like Purpose, Power, Perseverance & Patience. And Boots ‘N Cats. And that all kinds of beautiful things today are happening to me, to me, to me, to me… We sang and danced ourselves back into ourselves.

I’m pretty sure I sang something loose inside, and I never want to put it back!

learn the thriller dance
Thrill The World!

I finally learned the Thriller dance at the Alamo Drafthouse Thrillerfest. It was harder than I thought, but glad I finally get to mark this one off the list! Hooray for zombies!

go sledding
Tobogganing is the new sledding.

It’s not that often you have a chance to go tobogganing. We were lucky enough to get a chance this year in Eagles Mere, PA. It was a blast, but a little scary in that you slide down a giant hill and out into the middle of a frozen lake. But what a rush! If you ever get the chance, do it!
