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.

become wealthy
Some food for thought, this is cool stuff

I have always felt that being wealthy meant much more than just having lots of money. I think it means having your most valued moments with your favorite people, free of fear and full of hope. Seriously. Anyway, I’m reading “The Master-Key to Riches” (heres a link to the listing on half dot com) All of us who want to be wealthy should read it, its amazing. Anyway, here are the Twelve Riches he mentions:

  1. A Positive Mental Attitude
  2. Sound Physical Health
  3. Harmony in Human Relationships
  4. Freedom From Fear
  5. The Hope of Achievement
  6. The Capacity for Faith
  7. Willingness to Share One’s Blessings
  8. A Labor of Love
  9. An Open Mind on All Subjects
  10. Self-Discipline
  11. The Capacity to Understand People
  12. Economic Security

Folks its having an amazing influence on my life right now! If you’re serious about becoming wealthy, its an awesome book.

stop procrastinating
A totally must have book if you are like me

So, I have been dealing with procrastination my whole life. I find when I read things that help me improve my mindset I am able to be more motivated, which is basically why I deal with procrastination. Anyway, this week I got a book that has helped me A LOT, its called “The Master-Key to Riches”. I think any of us dealing with procrastination will seriously benefit, check out these excerpts:

  • “The starting point of all individual achievement is the adoption of a definite purpose and a definite plan for its attainment.”
  • “A definite purpose, backed by absolute faith, is a form of wisdom, and wisdom in action produces positive results.”

Anyway, its one of the most permanently motivating books I have read, I invite anyone who is serious about kicking procrastination’s hiney to read it, here’s the listing on the half dot com website, its like $1, but worth a million.
Good luck y’all.
P.S. Any of Napoleon Hill’s books are a high-yield investment.

drink more water
Put A Cup On Your Desk

My simple solution was to keep a cup on my desk, where I spend most of my day, and I grab it and drink water whenever I feel at all thirsty, or when I remember how much I need water.

stop biting my nails
I stopped in only TWO steps... hope it helps

Folks, I share your passion to stop nail-biting, I used to be so frustrated. I stopped biting my nails once I did the following:

1)Committed to myself that I would stop.

2)This second step is the big part and it may sound simplified but it worked:
Instead of biting my nails, I started to just use my teeth to scrape my nails… so its like biting without biting… get it? So I would just clean the underside of my nails with my teeth. I didn’t even give myself a limit, whenever I wanted to bite my nails I just cleaned them with my teeth. You don’t have to do any self-denial or cold turkey or anything. Since cleaning your nails is good, no limit!! After that my nails grew back, and since I was just cleaning them with my teeth instead of biting them, they were always clean and I ended-up wanting to keep them instead of biting them off.
Hope it helps.
