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.

learn yoga (read all 3 entries…)

I went to two yoga classes last week and they kicked my butt! I have muscles aching that I didn’t even know I had!
I got a little discouraged because almost all of the other people in the classes seemed more advanced that I was. However I know that it is a slow process to gain flexibility and strength that I’m not used to using. So I’m looking forward to achieving some of the balancing stances and a headstand.

learn yoga (read all 3 entries…)

So my first day I tried to go to a yoga class it had filled before I got there. Guess I have to find time in my schedule to not only go to yoga but show up thirty minutes early! I peeked in on the class and it looks fun. I’m going to try to get up early for Saturday morning yoga and hope it has some openings!
