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.

Attitude of Gratitude: Make Note of 3 Gratefuls & 3 Did Wells Each Day (43T) (read all 181 entries…)

I am grateful:
- for the continued slow pace at work, which I am finding very pleasant.
- for another nice letter from my mom.
- for our first fresh garden tomato – tiny and delicious!

I did things well:
- worked all day on a fabulous Excel spreadsheet
- ate all my fruits & vegetables
- increased the amount of weight that I’m lifting



I have been spying on a bird who waits until my tomatoes are bright red and comes along and stabs em with his beak! He only takes one selfish bite and leaves the tomato exploded still hanging on the vine. Ive never had this happen.

I may buy a pinwheel to put next to the plants. I hate to be selfish but he has eaten more of them than I have. Hummph!!!

Hummph for sure!

The pinwheel is a good idea. You can always put a little birdseed out for him as a peace offering…

Birds would never get that close to my tomato plants. Becca sees to that!

It’s nice to see you ‘round. :)

Oh yeah

Some nearby seed wld help. Anyways, that bird is a pecker!
