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.

Daily: Reflect on at least 5 things for which I'm grateful (Happiness Manifesto #2) (read all 9 entries…)
Thursday Gratitudes

I am grateful I am surrounded by a wonderful family, kindhearted friends, a faithful church, and good neighbors.

It was a good summer break, but I am grateful that school starts again in 5 days.

I got a check today that will cover the boys’ school shoes.

I am appreciated in my work on the church board. The pastors are supportive of my new project, and the moderator of the deacons asked for me to attend and give input at a strategy meeting.

The adoption agency is working on our homestudy again after being distracted by an agency audit.

A recent med adjustment for our oldest son raised our quality of life beyond our expectations for a solid two weeks or so. Once he recovers from the stress of school starting, we have hope it will again.

I get to sleep in a little tomorrow then have brunch with my parents.


sort77 release your heart.


Have a great brunch. Wish I could go that sounds nice. Too bad for meetings.
