Saraband savouring the simple things
I picked it up from Melissa here on 43t and I shall be repeating it next year. I found it really worthwhile :)
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 I did it: I used two websites which provided a daily focus on a particular aspect of living and working towards peace and nonviolence in the world.
The emphasis is very much on your own individual behaviour and attitudes. There is no need to join groups or make noticeable changes to your lifestyle: it is about how you personally think and behave.
Each day offered food for thought and reflection and made suggestions of positive action you might take. Generally I did not follow these suggestions specifically but used the daily writings to consider my own life and reflect.
The practice of looking at one specific area at a time helped me to clarify my thinking.
