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.

Quit Smoking (read all 11 entries…)
Hello again

I cant believe. It is almost 4 years, since I stopped. Not smoking, but writing to 43things. Meanwhile I had some rough time. Setback in my industry, one of my companies gone down (I had two, both micro), my financial status gone from good to poor and last but not least, I had a not-so-friendly divorce.
Yes, many things happened over last few years, so quitting smoking was not my main goal.
Luckily, I’m starting over. Business is going better from month to month, my children love me, although their mother tells them only bad things about me, I have manage to organize my life in new frames so it’s time. To start over.
Today (Sunday) I’m devoting all day to only one purpose: Prepare to quit smoking. With help of meditation, yoga and some DVD’s I can start. I’m writing also here and on my private file all the ideas and thoughts about quitting.
It’s time for my second DVD and then meditation.
Only 2 cig’s in a pack left. I wont buy another package.
More tomorrow.
Be well, all who have similar goals.

Starting again, Day 1

Now I’m encouraged by some audio tapes of Brian Tracy and will try again. This morning I feel enthusiastic and will try to smoke on a day by day basis for next 3 weeks (=21 days). No Zyban, no nicorette, just my old willpower. I’m very certain to succeed!
