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.

live a minimalist lifestyle
New years? New Life!

I read these posts and feel a kindredness with people I have never met. So what is it that draws us to speak out that “stuff’s bad m’kay.” To answer my own question, there is a disease that infects us all. Wether we believe it or not, most of us are unhappy with who we are, what we are doing, hell…who we are with. Why? I have not answer to that. For me, I was and in some respects still am that person. I could not see beauty for beauty and love for love. I could not accept being loved, I could not accept anything about everything that I had become. So I started getting rid of things I felt impeded my “true self.” And what I found is beyond words…..It was hidden so deep down inside of me I fear one more day and it would have been gone forever. I found love, thats the only word I can come up with, everything around me became so much more then a conquest. I didn’t have to change anything around me. It all came from right inside! Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead. Getting rid of “stuff” to me is not what I see as a minimalist life, it starts inside and the result, is less to obscure your view of what is truly beautiful:)

Be at peace where ever you may find yourself.
