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.

selfinspiredTeacher that will teach? Maybe...

I’ve had so many people tell me over the years that they would teach me to surf. First was JM (a friend’s girlfriend) and then was AG (mentioned in the last post) and after was an ex who kept saying he was going to take me to SD to learn. Nothing ever materialized any of those times.

Now, however, I am with someone who loves surfing and probably only second to sailing. He grew up surfing, owned his own machinery to make surfboards once and is sanding out his newest hand carved surfboard today.

He, like the others, says he’s going to teach me to surf. This time I might actually believe it. We’ll see what the future holds. 6 months ago

For my birthday this year I decided that it’s time to tick this off my list. I got a group of friends, booked some classes and went to Newquay for a couple of days. Lo and behold there was a couple of centimetres of surf on the first day which slowly fell to zero, no chance of surfing.

Instead we went for a bit of coasteering which was a lot of fun. On the last day we also got to have a go on an artificial wave which I definitely recommend, we had a really good weekend anyway. Summer’s over now, so I’ll maybe try again next year. 13 months ago
