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.

Get some bodywork to facilitate a painfree back! (read all 4 entries…)
I realized something at the Crib:

the pain in my upper back isn’t going away. Even with the corrections to my alignment in yoga poses and in sitting and standing, even if I get that consistently perfect, I think I need some bodywork of some kind to reverse the damage done by years of overextending in my thoracic spine. I have to admit now that one reason why I have not been able to resume a consistent seated meditation practice this year is that I am avoiding the issues of pain. The pain during my Commit to Sit program became too severe, and I haven’t been able to sit in comfort for long periods since. I’ll be trying a new meditation goal with other meditation positions (seated in a chair, against a wall, or lying down) to see if that helps. I also need to get this situation addressed by a professional (or multiple professionals)... although I can’t afford to, I need to find a way.


dragonfly35 has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
