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.

love myself

W – WATER- drink lots of water every day, at least two litres all during the day, makes my thinking clearer and makes me feel much better right away

A – ATTITUDE – Have a positive and realistic attitude towards life all along the day. Not always imagine that because the others have negative reactions it is caused by me in some way, maybe they are just having a bad day

S – SLEEP – I need about 8 hours of sleep a day. When I don’t get it, I get cranky and it is more difficult for me to maintain a positive attitude all during the day especially at the little curve balls life inevitably throws at me

C – CLEAN – This may sound silly but when my work/home/car environment is clean I feel much better more relaxed and less anxious, I have less thoughts of “Goodness! I’m forgetting something, but what?!” I also have a positive attitude towards myself – positive self-image

O – ORGANISE – I need to organise myself, make lists of things to do, have my calendar, remind myself of my priorities, focus on what I really need (not what I think I want momentarily) and think of the long term consequences of my actions (I’m quite impulsive and easily distracted by whatever looks like the most fun thing to do at the moment…)

R – ROUTINES – a sequence of tasks that I carry out every day or every week helps me keep on target, helps me keep my house clean (more or less) and gets the house chores done. Without routines my life basically falls apart: the kitchen gets messy the husband gets angry, the children get hungry, all those things are not good for me! As you have probaly guessed I’m an adept of FLYing (Finally Loving Yourself) and Flylady and her team. I’ve learned many things over the past 5 years but I must say, what I learned through Flylady has been THE most useful, interesting, supportive and WONDERFUL thing as well as completely and uterly FREE, didn’t cost me a thing!

E – EXERCISE – I need to exercise every day. I walk 15-20 minutes every day on weekdays! Go me! I should be doing another 15-20 minutes of walking every evening for my legs (bad circulation!)


Hey, this is a great idea! I really like it!!

Thanks! Tell me how it works out for you.
