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.

find God
In search of God

I am in pursuit of God, our heavenly father and creator.
I am reading his love letter to us (bible) and exploring his teachings.
My life is his life and some day I will have true happiness in him…

Here is a link that will help you to get to know God:

overcome anxiety
How I Overcame Anxiety and Panic Attacks

I just wanted to say that I used to have anxiety and panic attacks every day. I tried different meds, relaxation tapes, and counseling for years – nothing helped until I turned to God for help. I came across this scripture in the bible:

(2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and
the God of all comfort, who comforts us in
all our troubles, so that we can comfort
those in any trouble with the comfort we
ourselves have received from God.

I prayed and asked God to help me do this because I felt too much stress and anxiety to help anyone. I found an article that talked about this. The author wrote that when he helped others who were going through pain he found that his own pain dissipated. I decided to try it. In my Church volunteers were needed to help kids on Sunday mornings, so I took a leap of faith and signed up. This was not a very easy thing at first, but through prayer I got through it. So this is a mutual concept. We help others with their pain and God begins to lift ours. I suggest starting out small.

In the beginning I would still have panic attacks / stress but wanted to fully try this out and see what would happen. After the first month I suddenly realized that I had not had a panic attack for a few days which was rare in my case! I discontinued taking any meds as they weren’t helping me anyway. I then signed up to help on Wednesdays as well. As I continued to help others the stress and panic attacks became less and less seldom thanks to God. I haven’t had a panic attack or high anxiety in a very long time. God has taken away what the world was unable to. This experience has also helped me to become a better and stronger person.

I hope, believe, and pray that my story will help some of you out there today.

God bless you.
