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.

ScreamingMonkeyHere we are

20 years after failing to graduate from “Plankton Level” and countless failed attempts by so many different people to try and teach me, I am now able to swim from one end of the pool to the other and prevent myself from sinking. I still panic a little, but my fear of water is far from what it used to be. I sincerely thought I would never be able to learn how to swim and gave up this goal some time ago as a result. And yet here we are. 3 months ago

I took a class a couple of years back now. I may not be the most confident swimmer, but I am no longer afraid to try. 3 months ago

Spent a night or two in a hotel room and a guest pass at the local YMCA… not quite there, but officially closer than I have ever been! Waiting to have consistent access to a pool (or be able to afford to join the Y.) 4 months ago

I’ve decided to check this off because I can swim, just not well. My new focus must be becoming a stronger swimmer. Summer is (almost) back and that makes me happy. Two weekends in a row in the pool now thanks to living in an apartment complex with both inside and outside pools. My weak swimming skills have opened me to the world of marco polo, water wrestling, and surely other pool games to come. If this isn’t something you’ve accomplished, I encourage you to get at it. My 1st teacher told me that most people need to take 2-3 classes (series) before mastering this. Be encouraged. 5 months ago

vcb1023I'm learning

I began taking swimming instruction 5 weeks ago for 1/2 hour every Monday. I can now glide and swim a little bit. I just need to learn to turn my head and breathe. I’m so excited! 6 months ago
