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.

nifwlseirffSword form

The last class was mostly spent running through sword form. It’s a lot faster than our normal (slow) form, and I found it difficult to keep up. But it was a heap of fun! 7 years ago

nifwlseirffSore back

I’ve found that tai chi practise can stop my lower back from hurting at all (sciatica), but absolutely kills my upper back. After my 60 minute lesson each week my upper back/shoulder blades are extremely painful. I know I’m not over-extending my arms away from my body, or raising them above shoulder level (both of which could cause shoulder pain). Of course, I’ll stick with it, tai chi was highly recommended by a medical specialist.

So far I have memorised properly the sequence to single whip, halfway to the end of the first term (yang style, long form I think). Unfortunately the teacher doesn’t like to name the moves (I find it helps me to memorise the sequence). 7 years ago


My first class was a few weeks ago, and I’ve only missed one week out of four so far, even though the weather has been icy at night. Unfortunately my short term memory is not that good, so I’m not sure I’m practising correctly. I’ve tried to look for a video/book that covers the style (yang) and form (?) that I’m learning, but no luck so far. 7 years ago
