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 meditations b/c it mmakes sense!

I found the CD: Learn to Meditate – Aron Gadd @ a local library. I listened to it yesterday. It explains meditation and it’s purpose. Quite simmply…our mminds our busy with self~dialogue and chatter. Additionally there is constant the barrage of outer stimuli, hussle and bustle of everyday life. We are bommbarded in everyway: tv; computers; telephones; cellphones; self pressure and demands of outer influences. It’s OK to just ‘be’.
It’s a wierd concept for mme to be still unless I’mm sleeping. It’s suggested that you take timme EVERYDAY to practice meditation, b/c it is a learning process that you won’t absorb in one session. Evidently the powers of mmeditation are hugely benefictial. It says the benefits carries over past your meditation session into your entire day.
I found this particular CD to be clear and concise. I recommend listening to the CD in its entirety the first timme. Once you understand the reason for the meditation process you can easily fastforward to the guided meditation of your choosing: Watching the breath or Watchign the body (feeling). When you are feeling mmore comfortable and confident, you can go directly to the last session (Repeat of 2nd meditation but without time restriction).
We’ll see how a week of practice mmeditation commes along!!!
