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.

Day 2

Meditated right after getting up this morning. House was quiet and I wore headphones as extra noise blocker. Worked well. Body felt sore getting up and the sitting was actually quite comfortable. Topic of healing pain from past was nothing new, but one thing resonated with me. When looking back at any situation, recognize that the people causing you pain were doing the best they know how. I have heard this many times before, but when I heard this morning I instantly thought of my sis and NR. “Ok, that is what it is.” that is what I thought and it did feel ok to think that. Did I possibly begin the path of letting go?!

My thoughts drifted to my daily “to-do” list many times, but I kept putting my focus back on my breath. So hum. So hum. So hum.


AOK has gotten 1 cheer on this entry.


I want to:
