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.

It's an old habit - and it doesn't die off by thinking about it.

You can’t convince yourself or talk to yourself to get rid of this. Atleast, it doesn’t work for me.

The habitual thoughts just keep coming back.

The solution to this is focussing on your goals and enjoying your efforts. It’s a process.

Looking forward to that day when I would be able to have a peaceful calm!

They say Present is the only thing you have got

In the past few days, I have been almost trying to script the future.

I have been setting ambitious goals for myself. Learning baout Technology, perhaps starting my own company and the likes.

What I keep forgetting is that Today is all that I’ve got and I want to make the best out of everyday!

You can only live right now. Not later. Tomorrow never comes.
