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.

become a yogi

I really want to do yoga on a regular basis, but up until now I didn’t know where to start.
Recently I bought “Yoga foundations” by Travis Eliot and also his program “Ultimate Yogi” which is an intensive yoga program that goes on for 108 days with one hour of yoga practice daily. I think I’ll need to do the foundations-dvd for a while since my flexibility is terrible and my basic knowledge of yoga is quite limited. I don’t want to start the Ultimate yogi-program and burn out on it, so I’ll start slow.

get a neuropsychological evaluation

With queues up to 3 years here in Stockholm I’m not very optimistic about this, and I don’t know if I want to spend a lot of money on a private alternative. I’ll probably make some calls on monday (I say probably or maybe because I always postpone things I say I’m going to do)
