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.

What is Important

I keep coming back to this; What is important? because I feel what is important to me, has no meaning in the lives of those around me or those who are close to me. It is not the big things like family, health, living; but the little things that get us to those major things. It seems the way I get there has no meaning or value to anyone.

Is my perspective that messed up? Maybe my patience is just wearing thin these days.



I know the feeling...

With me, sometimes it’s just a down day that goes away on its own…

Sometimes it’s more persistent… If I get stuck in it for too long, the universe usually sends me someone who needs my help & somehow the act of helping helps me feels connected again…

What ever it is with you, I hope it ends soon…

Thanks for you insight Goddess

I will snap out of this and maybe helping someone is the answer. I’ll look for those opportunities.

knowing what is important

is really the little things in every day that make up the big things.

For me the little things, like 43T, my budget spreadsheets, Law and Order, having soup with my daughter, saying high to my office neighbor. When you look at them they are all a part of the bigger picture.

I wrote this

some time ago. I’m not sure things are a lot better.
I never did say what was important here. Little things? Yes! Also the simple things.

To me, it simply is “to belong”.

oh that is a big one

to belong to a community, a family, a company, a person. You are right.

Bob1623 has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.
