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.

deepen and strengthen my yoga practice (read all 7 entries…)

Current work trauma is making me interested in a deeper spiritual practice with a physical component to help me remain centered and peaceful and do good work in all my tasks and “things.” It’s interesting to have an “enemy” post-grade school – I want to remain open through this process and not let this person’s malevolence towards me bring me down or affect my self-esteem or level of functioning.

I intend to pare down my other exercise activities, since that will be necessary to deal with this new threat anyway and the needs it’s created in my work life. I plan to focus on my morning pages from 5 to 5:30 AM, then engage in a full practice from 5:30 to 6:15, which will let me resume my normal “getting ready” schedule. Additionally, I’m going to add a few sessions to my noon-day office yoga practice (mid-morn and mid-afternoon), and do a brief 15 minute session to wind down at night. That ought to be enough yoga for anyone, even a stressed-out, embattled warrior like me.



I want to:
