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.

Realise it's so easy to make others happy...

Just by doing the little things. I’m doing the refreshments this evening for a friend at the local amateur theatre, although I’ve had a bad day, am really tired after working extra yesterday & on call last night. It’ll make my friend so happy, also she’s got me down to train someone else. I know I’ll feel great when I get there, I’ll soon develop into the social butterfly I become when in the spotlight, it’s also easier relating to people when you have a job to do & can hide behind the refreshments. People think I’m so confident, just good at acting when I need to, if only they knew!

to become more aware...

...of beauty in the unexpected places, which we don’t need money to appreciate

Glad for the wonderful surrounding... one of the places I work, especially as the other is an industrial unit

Love the natural flora found in unexpected places...

...if only they would grow in my garden.

Being thankful...

...when things are going my way.

Be thankful that I'm relatively healthy...

...& what’s wrong with me is on the mend

Feeling great...

& feeling grateful, realise how lucky I am.

Remembering how good I feel when I done my chores...

...the thought of it is always worse than the doing.

.....I would only be alright if I could get started!!!!

Need to remember the feeling of tranquility, cleaniness, order & peacefulness when everything is in it’s place, clean & easy to hand. Little & often. Got out of routine need to get back into it & feel the benefits of achieving this, i did it before & can do it again.

Receiving compliments...

...learn to stop making excuses & accept them for what they are!

Seeing a new flower emerging in the garden...

... always makes me feel wonderful & full of hope.
