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.

It's been a full week

And I have fallen behind in quite a few of my goals. I have procrastinated, bave played video games, wasted countless hours on the internet. The only things I have made progress on this week are guitar and juggling.

Very disappointed in myself. I guess if I don’t log on to 43 Things, I end up doing nothing.

Learn to juggle

Juggling seems like a cool, pointless skill to learn. But hey, why not? A few weeks ago, a friend of mine who is in the circus club gave me the basics of juggling. He’s pretty good, good enough to perform. He currently is working on some advanced techniques with a friend of his.

Anyway, I didn’t pick this back up until yesterday when I decided I wanted to get better at it. So I picked up 3 tennis balls and just kept trying. Needless to say, there were a lot of dropped balls. The biggest problem I have is that my throws are inconsistent and as a result I drop a ball (please excuse the innuendos) or two hit each other and go opposite directions.

So that’s what I need to work on, getting my throws together. So far I’ve been able to go about 10 throws, not bad.

Not off to a good start

Um…today I thought about writing a list of things to do…but I didn’t.

So instead I watched old “How I Met Your Mother” episodes while attempting to juggle.

As quoted from 300 “Hell of a good start.” Not.
