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.

Complaining less :)

Since I started a new challenge (Smile all the time for 21 days), I am not complaining like before. I only complain when I have to hurry home and my dog is pulling when we are talking a walk or when my sister calls to complain (listening to complaining can lead you to complain).

But I am doing pretty good this week. It has been a few days and I am not complaining.


failing on it miserably this week….


Wow, reading the other entries here about this subject reminded me that yes, people don’t like negative people and when you’re complaining, you bring a dark cloud above you and then people avoid YOU!
I think I am working on it without even thinking about it which is funny, because I expected to have to remind myself all the time.


I noticed that even when I am IMAGINING a conversation, I see myself complaining about something.
I need to stop that because it doesn’t improve the situation or makes anyone happier.
