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.

Your Thoughts and Words Have Power

Consider reading the “Power of Intention” by Dr. Wayne Dyer. His book “Inspiration” is also an excellent read. The majority of the world population believes the world happens to them, and that they are at the mercy of every thing under the sun. I’ve learned that my own preconceived notions of who I am and my subsequent behaviors have driven my life. Simple course changes in the form of paradigm shifts in thinking have had a remarkable impact and brought miraculous change. It’s virtually as simple as thinking something into being. If your intellect can digest some heavy verbiage, you’ll also enjoy books authored by David Hawkins, M.D.
Bottom line – if I wasn’t behaving in a tolerant fashion before, it was because I essentially chose not to. Realizing the decision was actually mine to conduct myself in a balanced way and that I could condition my brain to respond differently to previously frustrating scenarios was a breakthrough of monumental proportions.

Done Deal!

This is the first time I’ve gone a month without drinking in ten years. PROS – 1)more energy when exercising and for day to day activities 2)skin looks much better 3)I’m now spending more time with my wife and three sons. CONS – Just one…my threshold for tolerating frustration has shortened a bit (similar to when I quit smoking). However this is getting better with time.
