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.

Workout at least 3 times a week

I’ve been going to a yoga class 3 times a week. I also just signed up for 2 months. I don’t think many people realize how much of a workout yoga is. It not only builds muscle, but it helps you build strength as well. Today I am currently feeling muscles I didn’t even know existed…

I think if I stick with this, it will be a great longterm investment in my lifestyle.

attend one concert a month

I’ve attended so many concerts this year I have lost count.
Bonnaroo in itself was around 100 performers, which of course I didn’t get to see them all, but I did see.. Tom Petty, Radiohead, Rusted Root, Damien Marley (Bob Marleys son), it was pretty amazing.

Ben Harper has still been my favorite concert of the year. There are plenty more to come in the future..

meet someone famous

Aretha Franklin came into the courthouse the end of August and I got to assist her in helping her son post a bond. Was a pretty cool experience, but I still don’t get startstruck like most people do.
