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.

morning glory is busy learning a thing or two about life

stop hating myself

Now I know how to stop hating ourselves. First step is stop criticizing yourself. Just think over..nobody is perfect. If God has given this birth, we should make life more meaningful by ignoring our faults too. This will help you not to fall in guilt pit fro the crime you did not commit.
Second step is start developing confidence in yourself. Believe in yourself. You can do several things better than others do.
Third step is very important and I found it very promising too. You do not have any control over several things. I have read in “Bhagvatgita” a theory called Samkhyayog. This theory says every thing is predestined..every moment of life.. To whom you are meeting today, to whom you are taking lunch..every thing is predestined. We can not rule over nature or God. Then why worry about the things going on around can not be judge of yourself or you can not become God. Let him do whatever he has decided. Do not challenge his role. If you go back in your will find every sorrow, every happiness had its own time circle. In your sorrow you tried to make full efforts to come out ,nothing took its own time. In happiness you tried hard to grab those moments but could you do that..? It passed away in due time. Problem is that sometimes we become over sensitive and start brooding over things where we do not have any control. We start cursing our self for the change we do not like. Friends I was away from this website for sometimes. I spent my time in reading and analyzing things. But now I want to share my feelings with you all. I have started loving myself. I understand now I am God’s pride possession. If I hate myself I would hate my creator.


Todd Schoonover will miss all his 43T friends
