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.

How to let go


AWGrace ☿♁♃♄♅♆♇

I agree

My personal rout through this problem was the realization that fear is an illusion created by others and maintained by myself, living with fear makes you stop doing things just in case it goes wrong, which in turn stops you living your life.
Choose not to live with fear and it dissolves into the ether :)


Thanks for the How-To.

I can’t spend my time prancing around my fears and hoping that they would resolve themselves.

I can’t spend my time sitting with my fears in hope that I would just adjust to their presence.

I need to confront them, conquer them and go through them. It’s so much easier said than done but completely worth it.

Thank you for sharing

So eloquently! This passage gave me the shivers of resonance with High Truth. You capture the essence of exploring and healing the shadow side so beautifully! Thank you for sharing the light and creating channels for higher love to shine through!

chinalove is reinventing herself

Hi Tristan

I stumbled onto this….and I need to make a change…..u really nailed it….”when I confronted my true fears” I have to take a deeper look at my true fears….maybe make a list. They are causing me to do a lot of uncomfortable things I really don’t want to do.

Thanks for your comment, chinalove.

I’m still doing this on a daily basis – moving through my fears, confronting them. It gets easier the more you do it, and I’m seeing major changes in my life because of it. My relationships are much better, and other parts of my life are also moving forward.

I hope you’ll find your way through it, too.

blue light hopes this site is going to continue.

thank you!

Thank you so much for your post here Tristan! I know it was last year, still that is what I need to keep in mind right now. And it is all so true!

You're welcome!

I just reread what I wrote way back when and it still holds true for me.

I’m glad you find it helpful.

Tristan has gotten 37 cheers on this entry.
