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.

Do Yoga every other day

I yoga’d for 4 years straight, working my way from 2 days a week to sometimes 5 days a week – have to love those monthly passes! Though I loved the studio I attended I felt it was time to move on and find other teachers and new experiences involving yoga. After many experiments and disappointments I began to practice alone at home. At first it was great. I found that an hour and a half session would be over in the blink of an eye. I was able to invest more time in experimenting in breathing, meditation and mudra exercises, but because I couldn’t find a teacher/studio to invest I drifted from the investment of time. Now I am back to twice a week at best but want to go back to every other day.

Become financially stable and secure

This year I have decided to take control of my finances. I consolidated my debt and slowly but surely am paying it off. I set some small goal that require money to pay them and have savings automatically deducted from my pay check. I am trying to balance being able to socialize and live in New York while budgeting. I am keeping excel sheets of monthly budgets, spending my income before it arrives so that everything, including paying debts and saving, is alloted for. Thankfully summers in NYC offer freebies of all sorts, including nights at musuems, music and dance lesson in the parks…

Speak and Read German Fluently

I speak smatterings of a number of languages. I read bits and pieces of those languages. French, Spanish and Italian come eaay because they are easily connected and always seem to be around in one form or another but German, because I don’t use it often and don’t hear it anymore seems to be slipping away. I want to begin to concentrate on increasing my knowledge and use of this language.
