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.

If you say you can't, then you're right. If you say you can, then you're right too

I’m a pessimist. But I know I have become like that. I definitely haven’t been like that all my life…and I certainely don’t want to be like that all the time or all I will attract is negative things. It’s funny how the things we think of most tend to materialise. If you fill yourself with positive thoughts for long enough, then your life becomes positive. Like Solomon said ” the one with a good heart will have a feast constantly”. Negative thinking is a worthwile habit to break. I must admit I give in to it too much, which is why I am at the point that I am now in my life, feeling rather incomplete, inexperienced, unwise etc…
If only I could monitor my thoughts, my “inner conversation” and “make every thought captive to follow Christ” then I would flush myself out of this incidious self-defeating habit…

The mind is a computer. It processes what you put in it. If you inadvertently let a virus in, it slows you or completely shuts you down. But if you only put good data in and protect yourself from viruses, you get useful work.
