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.

keep a gratitude journal for one month
Gratitude journal

I kept a gratitude journal for a month and a half – from April 15 to May 31, 2014. Each day, I noted up to five things I am thankful for, as well as my biggest achievement of the day (which I coined my “bright spot”). It was a great way to be mindful and present to all the wonderful things in life that often go unnoticed or unacknowledged.

Road trip to the Sunshine Coast

On Tuesday, May 13th, I decided to take a spontaneous road trip to the Sunshine Coast. I took the ferry early afternoon and then drove all the way up to Egmont. I stayed at the beautiful West Coast Wilderness Lodge, overlooking the Sechelt Inlet. The next day, I hiked to the Skookumchuck Rapids, and then to Smuggler Cove later in the day. I was back home Wednesday evening.
