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.

starburst1982 is back after way too much time away

Try my best to meditate every day (read all 8 entries…)
This is something...

else that i have not been putting nearly enought time into. Exercise and meditation are the two lifelines that are constantly thete to pull me from my dark days and yet i continue to neglect them. I reached a point the other day when i felt i could no longer listen to the incessant chat in my head. I sat down to meditate on the words ‘let go’ and by the end i felt so much calmer and freeer. I wonder why i have a tendancy to drop these things in my time of need.


I do the same thing

Maybe it’s human nature? “They” say we resist that which we most need how messed up is that?
