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.

So I just finished the YOGAFIT Level 1 training..I’ve got to teach 8 classes worth of community service before i can officially get the certification. I mean, i’m already teaching yoga at my gym…but ok, I get the point of the “community service” classes. This ust pushed this goal of being complete by…..let’s be honest, probably 3 months. Aw well, if I want it, I want it! 10 months ago


So on Monday I needed to get away from all the “displacement” and choas of my life recently. I decided to take a road tri to Charlottesvile for the day. When i was there i planned to go to a Bikram Yoga class. It was a very interesting experience. I figured that since i’m going to be a Yoga instructor soon, I should at east try out hot yoga. It was interesting. Smelly, yes. Since it was a holiday it was retty crowded and the smel smoetimes was weird. It was very stretching orientated, so i had to hold back a lot becuase of my knee. Also, the heat was quite an aded obstacle. I wouldn’t say it ever got unbearable, but towards the end when we were on teh ground i just wanted to lay there most of the time instead of get up and do another move. Very cool experience. i would try it again. 11 months ago


Today I taught a great Yoga class. It felt like for the first time I knew what i was doing and I was teaching Yoga, not pilates. Reading the Yogafit book and basing my class off of L’s I think helped me. I’m getting closer and closer to my goal. Can’t wait for the certification in February! 11 months ago


So I’m finally writing this goal down even though I’m been working towards it for a while. I made the decision sometime this past fall to stop subbing Yoga classes with Pilates and to actually learn how to teach Yoga. I have a Yoga class on the schedule with my name on it at LA and I’ve signed up for the Yogafit cert for February. I’ve been really getting into Yoga lately, especially since my knee has limited my fitness options, so I think this is a good direction to go in. 11 months ago

Graduated from 200-hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training on Friday, June 15, 2012!! The training was SUCH an amazing experience—four weeks of class that turned out to be so much more than I had anticipated. Life changing! 2 years ago

gaiagranolarangerAlmost to Kripalu

I haven’t written much about this goal, but I defintely have not forgotten it! As I write this, I am sitting in the Albany airport awaiting the shuttle to Kripalu! I’ll spend the next two weeks there, and then another two weeks this summer, working on the RYT200 certification. I AM SO EXCITED!! 2 years ago

dragonfly35I graduate today!

In fact, I have one requirement outstanding, so I won’t have my certificate signed today, but I will mark this goal complete and create a new goal of registering with Yoga Alliance. Once my last requirement is done, I’ll be able to complete that new goal.

Thanks for all your support and cheers. This goal has been on my list since the very beginning. I think I’ve probably given it up a few times, and in the beginning it was just a dream, and now I’m marking it done. It’s my second most cheered goal of all time at present. Thank you to all the 43Ters who have helped and encouraged me visualize this goal and then to open the door and step into the reality of it. Namaste. 3 years ago

dragonfly35Emotional journey

and I’ve successfully come through most of it now. I’d like to write or blog more about it, but I’m finding it all difficult to put into words at the moment. Suffice it to say that in spite of some challenges, everything has gone beautifully and I feel ready to be a teacher now.

We have a few more classes to take tomorrow and then our graduation. I will still need to complete one class assist (on June 12th) to officially meet the program requirements and register with Yoga Alliance as a yoga teacher, but I am basically there. My heart is very full tonight. 3 years ago
