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.

I have started re-reading Simple Abundance again to help me remember to do this!

I am going to use the book

“Simple Abundance” to help me focus on this more in 2010


I felt like I was living in abundance when I manage to come home from the grocery shopping with change today!

This is the quote that came up after I added

my entry about choosing:

“What are you prepared to give up in your material life to try to make your dream come true?”
- Gail Sheehy

I am prepared to give up my mistaken beliefs and my mistaken thinking, to allow my potential to be realised. I truly am blessed and live in abundance and joy!

I am now choosing

to be open to the universe, allowing it to provide me with all the beautiful, wonderful things that I deserve.

Just as I seem to get on top

something pops up to remind me that we have something else to pay for why does that always happen?

Things are definately looking up

I have a plan for the new year and a budget to help get our finances as abundant as the rest of our lives.

I think my more positive

attitude towards my finances and my excitement about getting back into my budgeting is helping me to assume abundance more

Realised today that

I need to change my thinking from not having enough to recognising that I do have enough. Like we have enough fruit to last a long time , thanks to our fruit trees, we have enough eggs thanks to the chickens, we have enough water thanks to the plumbing we have. Really we are much luckier than many others in the world, but have become so caught up in the Iwant more mentality that I have forgotten to count my many blessings

been focussing

on the abundance of good things in my life today, like my children, my family, my friends etc

newsurfiegirl has gotten 50 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
