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.

de-stress (read all 2 entries…)
Now life-coached into stress relief...

A couple of sessions with my new life coach and I’m along the way to dealing with some big issues. I’ve sorted out some career priorities and have started working on some of the mental beating up I’ve been giving myself. Doing quite a bit of NLP-style reprogramming and even trying out some EFT-style tapping! I’m also exploring some dietary solutions and have just committed to a period of detoxing to kick things off.


get married
once bitten, twice shy?...

...that’s me.

The first attempt (though it felt more certain than that at the time) didn’t end well. And I do try hard to learn from mistakes. Which is why I haven’t “gone there” since.

But time has a funny habit of eroding such stoney bariers to trying again.

And having a partner to share the good and the bad in life is much more fun…

I think I’m talking myself into this, what do you think?

(BTW, can you hear a funny sortof tuneful clanging noise in your ears? What the heck’s that?!...)

Why so stressed?...

the sacred art of “no”... the work-life (in)balance… mental self-beating…

Whatever the underlying cause, stress is sky-high, certainly in the western world, don’t you think?

Whatever happened to the tempting prospect of the three-day working week, the paperless office and the new life filled with leisure hours more than you know how to fill?

Well… nothing. So much promise, so little delivery.

I find myself chasing my tale more that the childhood dafty known as Dill The Dog from the beloved “Herbs”.

So, I will (re)learn “NO” and I will tip the scales to “LIFE” and I will stop swearing and shouting (mentally) at myself all the time, you stupid, no-good, $**#!!!
