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.

Bringing peace through music
Soothing Music

Listen to soothing instrumental music to lower blood pressure and relax. Instrumental music does not trigger as many memories as music with lyrics so it is better for use in hospitals and for general relaxation.
I perform instrumental acoustic guitar in local hospitals several times a week. I did this 5 days a week for two years in an outpatient chemotherapy unit. The affects are amazing. This should be offered in hospitials all over. If you are a musician I reccomend doing this as a volunteer. This is another way to practice gratitude in your daily life.

Gratitude Beads 101

We feel it is very important to practice gratitude EVERY day so much we created Gratitude Beads 101.
We use them as a counting device EVERY DAY. Within a week everyone that uses then starts seeing amazing results. This even happens after one use for many people.
Whatever you use, please start counting your blessings once a day or more.
Thanks for the great website.
