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.

Let go of the past

This is a big goal. How to achieve it? I will break it down into smaller parts… 1.Understand 2. Make it more specific 3. Make smaller goals
1. I want to let go of the past because I hurt myself with staying in the past. Then I am not brave to move on. I have already forgiven myself and others which intentionally and unintentionally have hurt me in the past. I also understand that I can not reproduce nice experiences and lucky moments. The past is not real, it is only a memory and therefor a construction of my brain. This means I need to learn to use my brain in a different way. 2. Let go of the past means to stay in the NOW. When I realize that I am thinking again of the past, then I should “switch” my brain and focus on the present moment. 3. I will try to focus on my senses, what do I taste, what do I smell, touch, hear and see? Then I want to try to think about what I could do today to make myself happy.
