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.

still reading Gleanings

I read from Gleanings a little bit at a time, with a highlighter in hand. It’s what I fit in between all the other things I’ve got going on. Definitely worth reading.

started reading Gleanings

I bought a new copy of Gleanings that I have been reading slowly and highlighting passages I find personally meaningful in some way. This is much better than the used copy I got from the library that had been marked up by a “Christian” of some variety with a strong opposition to Baha’i.

email newsletter from

I signed up for the email newsletter thing from which includes links to articles.. this is a pretty good start for me to read a little bit periodically about the Bahai Faith and current events within the Faith.

A Short Introduction to the Baha'i Faith

I picked up “A Short Introduction to the Baha’i Faith” at the library and I’ve started reading that. So far I haven’t gotten very far, but I’m going to read the whole thing. It is indeed a short book.

Also, for my psychology class, I can do a project that basically consists of reading a book that is somewhat related to psychology and make notes in the margins, mark important passages with a highlighter, etc.. and turn it in for extra credit. For that I got “It’s Not Your Fault” by psychologist Patricia Romano McGraw, Ph.D., which is from Baha’i Publishing.

Reading The Hidden Words

I’ve started reading The Hidden Words, online.. until I can eventually get a print version.. an actual book. Reading just a few passages at a time; allows me to fit it in at work between tasks and time for stuff to sink in and be absorbed.. swim around in the brain and such.

The Hidden Words is here:
