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.

Be a Ski/Snowboard Patrol
Became a Canadian Ski Patrol.

It would be one of the most rewarding experiences given that you have to be a snow sport enthusiastic person and enjoy helping people.

I’ve became a Ski Patrol through the Canadian Ski Patrol System (google CSPS).

After 80+ HRs of First Aid Training, then on-snow training, I was certified to be a Ski Patrol on Snowboard.

I volunteered at Blue Mt Ski Resort, Ontario, Canada as a weekend patroller. They pretty much give you a season pass for free plus employee discounts in stores and restaurants in the resort.

The entire hill is like my big play ground and you realized that so much more are happening on the hill being a Ski Patrol that you’d have never experienced when just being a guest.

Not to mention about meeting great people and weekend parties.

I’ll do it again next season!

P.S… you do need to be a good skier or snowboard before being a Ski Patrol. Those are not part of the training and some people do signed up and thought people would teach them how to ski/snowboard… No… that’s not how it works.

ride a motorcycle

Motorcyclists sort of have their own “cult”. They’re all passionate people who shares the wishes of riding the wind and freedom to explores every part of the world on two wheels. We salute each others on the road.

Whether you a ride speed racer bike, time machine cruisers, sport touring, vintage cafe racer… etc… bikers don’t discriminate bikers… unlike those rich people in expensive sport cars.

Being a machine enthusiast plus adventure rider. I felt gladded that I have picked up this sport. No matter it’s for daily commute or adventures, life on two wheels is always fun.
