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.

What A wonderful Easter Weekend!

http://thegoodnessoflife.com/

My family is awesome! There were planned activities all weekend from Easter egg hunts to church services to Guitar Hero contests with prizes. We saw bands in action (Grandmaster Cane, Momma Cane and little Candy Cane) from the family. I am totally exhausted but happy. I missed all my naps last weekend. We had friends who convened at our homes. We even had some kids from church stay the entire weekend, who are not exposed to this kind of togetherness. They were awestruck! They did not want to go home!



Always Something...

The young student asked the Master: “What is the best way to begin and finish each day?”

The Master replied: “By giving thanks.”

“But what if there is nothing to be thankful for,” asked the boy.

The master smiled and said: “There is always something to be thankful for.”

What a wonderful holiday season. I spent it between the homes of my twins. My grandson who is 10 years old tells everyone he is my bodyguard. He takes his job seriously. I opened the guest bedroom door to leave and he was camped out on the carpet outside the door asleep. He told me he wanted to be near in cause I needed something.
All the cards and gifts (yes gifts) I received from my fellow 43Ter’s, what a surprise!.
This evening I’m being taken out for a belated birthday dinner, the location is top secret. My 4 year old granddaughter informed me “My Daddy says its a secret and not to tell you Nana.” Don’t ask me again Nana! What a wonderful family and friends!



Thanksgiving!

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
~DENIS WAITLEY

1. A beautiful sunny day
2. Going to a wonderful Thankgiving dinner at my son’s home
3. Going back to Orlando, Florida tonight to cheer my grand in a cheerleading competition Friday. We’re going to stay all weekend again.

“For each new morning with its light,For rest and shelter of the night,For health and food, for love and friends,For everything Thy goodness sends.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

1. What a wonderful weekend in Orlando, Florida with family and friends starting Friday morning
2. I was able to hang with the gang all day Saturday from early morning, thru the game and into the night.
3. Sunday I rested all day and re-energized while everyone else did the theme parks.
4. Monday we relaxed at the resort and took in the sunshine by the pools and walked the hiking trails.
5. I returned home Tuesday morning and I feel really good



Reflect On The Wonder Of It All

“When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. And if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks, rest assured the fault is in yourself.”

~Chief Tecumseh

1. It’s a beautiful 82 degree day
2. Great family and friends
3. I’m a little weak today after being sick but I’m beginning to feel better
4. I’m grateful for my 43T friends who message me and cheer me with their support



Reflect On The Wonder Of It All

http://thegoodnessoflife.com/

I knelt to pray when day was done
And prayed, “O Lord, bless everyone,
Lift from each saddened heart the pain
And let the sick be well again.”
And then I woke another day
And carelessly went on my way,
The whole day long I did not try
To wipe a tear from any eye.
I did not try to share the load
Of any brother on the road.
I did not even go to see
The sick man just next door to me.
Yet once again when day was done
I prayed, “O Lord, bless everyone.”
But as I prayed, into my ear
there came a voice that whispered clear,
“Pause now, my son, before you pray.
Whom have you tried to bless today?
Gods sweetest blessing always go
by hands that serve him here below.”
And then I hid my face and cried,
“Forgive me, God, I have not tried,
But let me live another day
and I will live the way I pray
~anonymous

1. What a wonderful day, I accomplished my tasks I had planned for today.
2. I’m alive and well
3. My family is doing good
4. My grandson is in a cast after a fall in school but doing good, he is a trooper.
5. My 43T friends who keep in touch with me and ask “how are you”, that means so much.



Reflect

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. ~Albert Einstein

1. Its Monday a chance to start a brand new week
2. The love of family and friends
3. The relief of mending broken relationships
4. I’m alive and well



Reflect

“Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement – and we will make the goal.
~Jerome P. Fleishman
1. We had a great family and friends fun night last night. Food, games and movies. It’s something we do once a month with board games and everyone has to play from the youngest to the oldest.
2. I am spending the weekend with my son and his family, they live about 1 hour from me now.
3. I watched my grandson’s eyes light up when I gave him a PSP for his 10th B’Day.
4.Now we’re getting ready to go to a family Sunday dinner at my other son’s home.
5. I need a vacation away from my vacation
