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.

Find a balance between the things I want to do and the things I need to do
Balance is so tough but so worth the effort.

I’ve been working diligently at finding a better balance between my needs and the needs of others; my personal and work lives; and order instead of chaos. Currently, things are going well.

I feel rested and energized. I’m knocking items off my to do lists and spending time reading poetry and relaxing on the swing with a cold brew. I know that I must remain vigilant in my journaling and continue to pay attention to my life.

It is amazing to me how quickly I can spin out of balance. I naturally seem to be drawn to the outer edges of the pendulum swing rather than to the middle. I don’t think this is an awful thing, but it is something I have to pay attention to and try to be proactive rather than a pinball reacting madly to any and every stimulus.

I’d rather not live according to the quote,”I may not walk the straight and narrow, but I try to cross it as often as possible.” I prefer to find a healthy way of being.

It is a good life…

visit london
It's All Fab!

We hit the British Library, British Museum, Westminster Abbey, Windsor Castle, Double-decker Bus Tour, Hyde Park, Wicked, Chicago, and drank many pints in wonderful pubs. I highly recommend London as an incredible, architecture & history filled vacation spot.
