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.

Heavy heart (and hips, thighs, stomach...)

It’s with a heavy heart that I reinstate this goal. I had it marked off as “completed” but I allowed my weight to sneak up again. I was as low as 188 in the autumn but now am almost 20lbs above that. sigh

It would be easy to get depressed about this but that wouldn’t help. When I become low, I tend to eat more and move less. So, I will try to maintain my good humor and simply start this goal again.

To quote Samuel Beckett, “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Or, to quote a common saying, “Fall down 7 times, get up 8!”

Create a personal mantra and live by it (read all 4 entries…)
What a difference!

I can say I’m happier and less anxious these days than I was when I came up with this mantra. “I can trust myself:” such basic words but going against much of what our society and peers imply we should feel. You’re not good enough. What makes you think that you know what’s right? How could you imagine that you’re enough, just as you are. I CAN TRUST MYSELF!

I’m not suggesting that this mantra is entirely to thank for my improved mood, but it certainly helped. Yay.
