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.

Providing service to others

I really want to help and do something to give back to the community. The situation I am in, is that I don’t have a car at the moment and getting a ride is a hard. Therefore, I want to do something locally, but there is just not that much to do around here. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for anything, ‘cause I really want to do this.

get a pet
Choosing a pet

I am for the first time in years able to choose a pet. I haven’t had one due to circumstances, but now I am free to choose. The thing I am considering, is which one to get. Hmm…

use positive words
The power of words.

Words have a life of their own. Words have power. Power to influence peoples thoughts, actions, emotions, dreams, fears and over-all their entire lives. We also influence ourselves and our own well-being with our own choice of words. Dr. Emoto made history launching his studies on how water crystals are transformed by different words. Positive words made beautiful, symmetrical water crystals where as speaking bad words made crazy chaotic patterns in the water. The point being that since we humans contain between 50-65 percent water, using positive words will improve your life, literally.
