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.

Anxiety Diary

My MD suggested I do this Anxiety Diary for when I am anxious “for no reason”

1. What is the level of anxiety 0-10 7
2. What are you thinking
Item A: I feel bad that I cancelled an appointment at the last minute and the person had already driven in the rain 30 minutes to meet me but by the time I had called her back to make it right, she had already turned around on the freeway and was driving back home. I could tell she was irritated and I know it was an irresponsible thing for me to do. In mitigation, she does get paid whether she meets me and does the work or not.
Item B: I am bored with the subject she is teaching me and I am wanting to not do it anymore, but I have invested 10 years in it and it seems a shame to give up. However this situation is maybe kind of like a relationship gone bad ,where it may be better in the long run to end it than hold onto memories of what it once was.
ITEM C – Maybe this is my payback for denying people benso’s for their anxiety – here’s how it feels – bad
3. Intervention
writing about it
going to exercise in about 2 hours
cleaning and organizing / paying bills

4. How do I feel after intervention

After workout out 1h hard, 1h light, 1h med I got my mind off it. Then I talked with spouse about my feelings. I apologized to the person who I offended. I am feeling better and ready for bed. The exercise helped a lot.
