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.

have a lucid dream
First Lucid Dream

I ws wondering around doing normal dream stuff. There was a beautiful orange and grey sunset in the sky that was just captivating. For some reason i decide to look at my hands. They look like cartoon hands and im able to look at them ten times closer than the real naked eye would be able to. i see every little line and suddenly it hits me. I’m lucid Im so exited i scream “WOOOO!” and instantly im removed from the dream. I dont know if it was a true or false awakening but im almost immediately put back into the dream and im lucid again. this time i manage to keep my cool. I dont think to change anything, instead i just wonder aroun my dream world, into a house with uneven floors and barley any light. i see my boyfriend and we embrace. while hugging him i look at my hands again to keep my lucidity but he spins me around and i lose it. then im back into regular non-lucid dreaming.

I’m very very pleased with this although i hadn’t had much control because i had been very intensely trying to do this, doing multipple reality checks a day, reading on it, thinking of it, and recently i slowed down. I stopped trying SO hard and almost started to lose hope but then this hppened at the perfect time mking me believe in my abillity to do this x1000000000. now i realize i ont have to try quite as hard as i was and im exited for my next one.



I want to:
