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.

Learn to knit
knit and purl

i just like the terminology: purl. :) Once I’ve actually completed a decent looking project that is not a scarf I will consider this done.

listen to my record collection
a couple boxes of records

I came into a couple boxes of records. I melted a few into bowls, but saved the rest for listening, but haven’t gotten around to listening to all of them yet. Some classical music, but some folk music that I tink I might really be able to get into. I plan on listening to a few a week at least. Will consider done when I’ve listen to them all.

Do more Cardio
low intensity more frequently would be good

I recently finished a marathon with a two week traning regimen. However, I don’t run that frequently. When I do, I enjoy running at a 6 min/mile clip. This usually lasts for about a mile, and then I am down to ~6:45. At any rate, I maybe do this once every month or so, and am pretty spent by the end. With the diabetes and heart disease that runs in my family, I should probably do more frequent, slightly lower intensity workouts. I will start off with once a week workouts: no matter what!
