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.

Channel energy constructively (read all 2 entries…)
Thriving but still experiencing life and pain

I think instead of getting really mad, sad, etc. I have learned to channel my energy to make a positive change in the world or thinking about it. I don’t suppress my energy, and I try to let myself feel it so that it does not stay in my body, but I also use that excess energy for good so that all the bad in the world doesn’t bog me down.

Making room for the positive

I’ve learned that I need to make room for the positive in my life. For a long time, I had many negatives in my life that occupied most of my time. However, when I made more time for positive things and people in my life while limiting my negative experiences, and I just made time for people in general, more people tend to gravitate toward me. When more positive people gravitate toward me, then the negative people or the mean people tend to rethink their position about me. It’s not so much about catering to the people who bear a negative influence in your life as to really enjoying yourself and letting your light shine so that people will be instinctively drawn to you.

Learn the art of peacemaking (read all 2 entries…)

I made a breakthrough in my research and now the future of peacemaking will be changed significantly just as my p values on my regressions are.
