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.

You are going to retire. Don’t do it! I haven’t had my fill.

When am I ever going to see you.

Sorry I suggested you were getting old. It isn’t true. You are as good as it gets.

respond not react (read all 2 entries…)
I have been reminded of this daily

And responding feels so much better!

Breathing better in responding.

All easier. ease.

my weekend


Step up and deliver. Stop being afraid. Be vulnerable and just show up and do it. (read all 3 entries…)

I did it. I stepped up. I delivered. I am not afraid. I am absolutely doing it! YES!

make a home (read all 27 entries…)
I chuckle re-reading the entry...

Still the master and the office.

I plan each weekend to do them

but something better keeps showing up

Relaxing, friends, books, journaling, walking… all better things than getting the office unpacked!

I checked the two of three reports

They are clean and all is good

Haven’t run the score because I know it was good enough to get a great mortgage!

Will run the score soon.

Give it a few months to make mortgage payments on time.

and it until her hair dries

she is too cold

and I smile

as she shows me the purse she wants

i laugh. i laugh.

make a home (read all 27 entries…)
A month of living in it…three months, almost

It feels so wonderful.

I still haven’t really “decorated” though I plan on it.

I have been waiting for the weather to break. Kind of just contemplating and sitting in peace through February and March.

Slowly doing a little bit at a time, but certainly not getting a whole lot done.

as an intention. lol

the place just feels so special without needing to do much.

inspirational. everyone who comes does not want to leave. very comfy.

very comfy. i love it. it is more home than anywhere I have ever lived.

I only have a couple of weeks to finish

It has helped.

I feel relaxed.

Wish it all could have been quieter.

Next weekend. I’ll take it.

Gratitude & Happiness (read all 23 entries…)
grateful and happy...

every time I walk into my living room
or come down my stairs.

or look out into my garden

or see the birds fight for seeds

or chase the deer from eating the bird seed

or put my feet up

or have someone to hold

or have love in my life

or give love – and feel it

that i have opened my heart to feel each day

that i have managed to live through very tough times

that i have survived…no, thrived

that i have peace in my life

that i have the most spectacular home i could have imagined

on a human scale and i have reached a place

of everything i have being enough -

way beyond the imagination of enough

and life it very, very good.

thank you. thank you. universe. thank you.
