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.

Time and Exploration

Things have really been challenging this past year. So many new and difficult tasks to accomplish and so little sleep and rest with which to achieve a healthy balance and ability to succeed.

I put a lot of pressure on myself, and I don’t cut myself very much slack.

It seems that if something good happens, it is the blessing of the Gods, but if something bad happens, it is because I failed or didn’t do something right.

I honestly don’t think that the Gods would want me to live under this type of situation.

The question for the week is …. What to I really hold true? I need to make the time to explore this and meditate on this… and hopefully, if I can uncover my beliefs then I won’t feel like I am just surviving one day at a time, but can move along a path with a purpose.



Shadowchilde has gotten 25 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
