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.

list one thing every day that was positive (read all 20 entries…)
Im not doing too well on this everyday

I could say that “the sky didn’t fall” or “the earth didn’t explode” they are positives.

I guess Im a little depressed really. Don’t know why, just am, fedupsville. I try and be positive most days, but occassionaly my crap wears me out.

Suffice to say, Im giving up on this goal.

There are lots of reasons to list as daily positives, but for whatever reason, I can’t muster the enthusiasm to shine out on them.

For the kind words.

We all have off days I guess. Was feeling particularly narked this morning, but have chirped up a little.

Went to see my nieces and nephews, gave them chocolate, had a hug or two, just about to cook dinner for my son and I, salmon and mashed potatoes, followed by a nice glass of Chardonnay for moi. :)


I want to:
