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.

Wow, amazing new thing we heard about. Taking a detox foot bath with an ionic cleanse machine. You see pictured of other people taking the foot bath and the water turns from clear to brown, black, or green (depending on which internal organs you are releasing gunk from) and then the after pix of crud in and floating on top of the water. DISGUSTING, but it really works. I did one Wed and the water turned brownish/orange with tinges of black and green- so most of the internal organs were detoxing. Even saw some black flecks in the water which they tell me is heavy metals coming out. It’s a visually stunning display of all the toxins in our bodies waiting to come out. Better in the bath water than in me is all I have to say!!!

Ride my bicycle into town

I got a new bike a few weeks ago and shipped it here from Oahu. Haven’t ridden a bike much for about 8 years so this was a first. I guess as I am getting older the idea of falling off and the time it takes to recover makes it less appealing. But the Tour de France has been an inspiration!

Does a 10 Year Anniversary Count?

I did something new today. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a nice dinner out at Bubba Gumps. We also spent the day in a training class with a wunderkid from Kansas who was teaching us the latest procedures, shortcuts and info on our QXCI/SCIO biofeedback device. So instead of sitting on a nice beach sipping mai tai’s, which we can do any day, we sat in a hot classroom expanding our knowledge of a wonderful, fascinating and powerful program to relieve stress, pain and promote relaxation.

Photos coming soon.

Eat a mango for breakfast

It should be the little things that count. It has necesitated extra flossing as the fibers get caught btwn my teeth because of the pit that I chewed on.

Thursday was moving man day

Even tho our new house will not be done for about another 60 days, my friend Michael went down to Lowes and found a deal on 2 refrigerators. They were $1400 units marked down 50% because someone changed their mind. These are da kine that have the freezer on the bottom and the regular part on top. Makes so much more sense. The catch to this deal was that when you buy them at this rate, you have to take them away that day. I tried to wait for the Lowes rental truck, but then found out that it was occupied all day. Then, I called around and finally found a friend who had a truck to loan me. Then, it was call around to see if anyone could go up to where our new house was being built to help me unload.

Well, eventually, I just decided to drive up there at around 3:00pm and hope for the best. I had to unload it with just a little help from another woman who was the agent that sold me the house. We settled on storing it in the model home’s garage, since our house was not yet ready.

So what I did differently today was to be a one man fridge moving company. Yadee yada yada…..

My workout today

Was throwing kids into the pool. My neighbors kids, 9 and 6 were playing in the pool today at our complex and when I got in, it was, “Oh throw me, throw me!” So that was my little workout today, throwing kids around in the pool and putting them over my shoulder and spinning them around like they do in the WWF. I never watch it, but have occasionally glimpsed them spinning each other around and then throwing each other onto the mats. Looks like a lot of fun. Even the fake pain.

Working out today

I am going to start a regular exercise schedule for 3 days a week.

OK, I slacked off one day.

Tomorrow, I plan to write a business proposal to the guy who has agreed to have me design a website to sell his sarongs. This is a guy who is turning out to be a very nice and cool new friend. Now, we are taking a new step to work together. We had a general discussion today about the biz and need to work out an agreement as to how we split the gross sales when we do start to sell.


Well, when I started this new task yesterday, I had to main options and it looks like “starting a new internet business” won out. I talked with a friend who has a budding business in Hawaii selling sarongs at local stores. He has a special niche and I asked him if he would be willing to sell them over the internet since my wife and I design websites.
This goal has really sparked some movement in me. Tues nite, we went to an internet marketing presentation where they urged us to sign up for a training class (that we had already taken) and their primary pharse was, “take action today.” That is a good paradigm because I have been contemplating starting more businesses over the internet, but have not gotten off the couch to do so.
So today, we begin the task of designing the interface, setting up hosting, shopping carts and credit card over the internet. That should be challenging since we have not done that degree of website setup before.
Another different thing I did yesterday was changing where I sit at the dinner table. We have a very good friend we share dinner with at least once a week. We go up to her home, prepare a gourmet meal and then sit on her balcony that looks down the coast onto the ocean and we always sit in the same places. Last nite, I sat where our friend Barbara usually sits and has her sit where I usually sit. Just a minor change, but who knows what will come of it.
A hui ho and I hope you all make some big or small changes in your behavior. But I also applaud those who do not want to change and are happy with their current results. Whoever that one person might be… LOL


By now, most people have probably heard Einstein’s definition of insanity, “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” I have heard that and yesterday, it hit me that in order to see a change in my life, I will choose to do something different each day. Today, I will either invent the “left-handed fork” or start a new internet business.
This might even compliment my membership in a secret do-gooders society that is supposed to be a secret. Right Jean?
