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.

Read "How To Know God" by Deepak Chopra (read all 8 entries…)
I have been reading and reading Deepak Chopra....

In all honesty, I’m havinga little trouble getting through the book. It’s a great book. He talks about finding God no matter what level of spiritual development you have attained.

The range goes all the way through the unsophisticated fear of the fire and brimstone God of punishment and justice to the way a mystic sees God…and he describes a whole range of experiences in between.

I will catch up on my postings now to highlight some quotes that I found particularly interesting.

that sounds like Deepak...

truly an inspiration person when it comes to spirituality. I enjoy the way he expresses his philosophies very much.

Anyway, I’ve shelved the book in favor of the horrible book Love in the Time of Cholera, assigned by my book club (or as I like to call it Love in the time of Culeros, which the book club doesn’t appreciate but hey, I am who I am…)...and an options book. I owe it to myself to learn learn learn so I can start some new trading, and wonderful Doris was so kind as to show me some things this past weekend…she really motivated me!


I want to:
