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.

Practice Gratitude

Today I am grateful for:

The smiling people at the dunkin donuts counter
My totally smooth-tasting medium, toasted-almond, coffee with cream, no sugar and all of the people who helped make my morning coffee break come into fruition. As well as the technology, both natural and man-made that created it.

I am grateful for letting go.
I am grateful that my husband’s year long tour in South Korea is almost over.
I am grateful for all the things I’ve learned about myself this year.
I am grateful to be realizing that the problems I have are really only just in my head alone.

And most of all, I’m glad that I can deal with them there, and that someday they will let go of me.

I am grateful that today is one of those days where I can’t see a problem with anything, anywhere.

I am grateful to be alive with my feelings of gratitude.


I want to:
