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.

Get my skydiving A License

hehe we seem to be the only two with this goal. sounds like the worlds against you! well,theyre mostly minor things (weather etc) that are out of your control, just keep at it, im sure youll get it soon!

not sure what i can suggest with turns, i didnt have any problems with them. just lower one shoulder and raise the other while trying to maintain a good arch (symmetrical in all other places). i found it helps to practice on a beanbag or something in front of a mirror and make sure you are symmetrical. often your legs can go all over the place without you noticing. video feedback of jumps also helps with this.

ive done AFF and have 4 more consolidation jumps to do. im in the same boat as you with regards jumping, i really want to get this license but finding the time to go down, and weather being okay is making it tricky!

do a backflip
well... i kind of did it.

well i did a backflip!! im stretching the truth a bit there. Ive done a backflip while freefalling (skydiving). so technically not completed what this thing is really about. just gotta do one on the ground now!
