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.

impeccable with my word

The hardest one.

So many commitments to live up to.

Hard to say no. But I am getting better because so much is on my plate.



Practicing...Practicing...Practicing...

Getting more consistent.

Watch and listen to myself and my commitments.

Don’t take things personally with FS – who really works hard to make it about me – but I know it is all about him and where he is.

Don’t make assumptions – I am trying hard to maintain this with my siblings right now. Very very hard.

Always do my best – for my mom, for myself, for my daughter, etc..



I have been reading about the Fifth Agreement

Awake to the agreements right now. Awake to the dream.

My dream and the dreams of others.

It is such a great place to be.

If I could just stay here!

How to keep tuned into this? How?

It always lifts me and brings me a context that is richer, more full and more appreciative of others around me.

How?



Always do my best

My best has been restful this past month. Time to get my best in gear. :)



don't take anything personally

wow. this one is really important to me right now.

i am struggling to know this is true in how i was taken off a project. it isn’t about where i am – it is where they are.

i don’t want to be where they are.

i should be thrilled i am not on the project any longer.

feels hurtful when removed, as opposed to me being the one to say, i want to leave this plac.e

i should have said that.

i don’t know why i won’t and don’t say that

i am bad at leaving bad places and spaces. it isn’t about me

it is about that room – that space – that someone created.

as long as they let me stay – i will

but – i must learn to walk away from it.



Be impeccable with my word

This is both very easy and very hard

I overcommit.

I do a lot.

So, I generally am impeccable with my word.

Not all the time.

This is the hardest one of all for me.

I must learn to not over commit



Beginnings Here has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.
