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.

In Progress...

I’m working out now 2 – 3 times per week for usually 30 minutes each time.



own my own home (read all 2 entries…)
Done!

First home was purchased June 1st 2007!



take better care of my body (read all 3 entries…)
I'm a slacker!

This is one of the good news / bads news things…

I have been eating much healthier & putting more thought into what I eat.

However…

I’m not working out at all right now & I haven’t been taking my vitamin.

I bought alot of books, dvds, etc to help me but I haven’t yet got that motivational boost to start doing it. But I figure this is the first week of a new year so let’s see what happens from here.

One Step Forward & Two Steps Back

This is a tough one for me. I really try not to worry so much but that part of my mind which I can’t seem to control just gets the better of me.

The thing that bothers me most about me worrying is that I tend to worry about things that aren’t even happening… only things that I imagine may happen… but lately never do. So it’s more like a waste of thought or worry.



make more money (read all 3 entries…)
*Light Bulb*

I did get that new job, making so new big money… but I learned something… Making more money isn’t everything. Of course it is a good thing, I realized that I rather have a job I enjoy than making more money at I job I’m not happy with.

Easier Said Then Done...

While I have stopped worrying about certain things in my life… there are some things that are just on the tip of my brain & I can’t help but to worry about. I have however stopped worrying about those whom I cannot control, such as evil co-workers & fake “friends.” I also eliminated them from my life so it made it that much easier for me to stop owrrying about.



relax
My Mental Vacation...

This was an easy one to begin once I learned to let go. Leaving my job that was stressing me out has helped quite a bit as well.

Free @ Last...

I call it mental freedom… the art of letting the negative thoughts go. Eliminating those who I don’t trust in my life helped this goal quite a bit.



trust (read all 2 entries…)
It all ties together...

I realized not too long ago that several of my self improvement goals are tied together. Trust, relax, stop thinking negative, etc. Once I began to trust, the thinking negatively stopped, then I was able to relax. It’s like killing a while lot of birds with one stone.

Slowly But Surely...

I have taken a new job in a new city. And yes, making more more… a good deal more. I am finally being paid what I am worth. I was going to make this task as completed, but then thought to myself… why mark it as complete if I am not giving up on making even more. This is just a stepping stone even though it was quite a leap.



Write more (read all 3 entries…)
And another one...

I now write in my blog nearly each day of the week. At least 5 of the 7. Some might call it obssesive, I call it creative venting.

Better Than Rolaids...

Want some relief from stress & aggrevation? Try to cleanse your mind of negative thoughts. I have done it. It actually takes a lot of dedacation, but once you have done it is it really worth the effort put forth.

I am still working on eliminating the negativity completely, but I have made a dramatic positive change since I began.



trust (read all 2 entries…)
Found Someone...

I finally found someone I can & do trust… I realized that it wasn’t that I couldn’t trust, it was that my mind did not allow me to trust in those not worthy of having my trust. Now that I have someone I do trust, I appreciate it more than he will ever know.

Still going strong...

I have still been steady blogging on Yahoo! 360.



appreciate nature
Each & Everyday...

I found myself doing this on a daily basis… worth doing & hope to continue doing.



make love under a waterfall
Where?

This is going to be a lot harder than I thought… there aren’t exactly any waterfalls around here… Guess I should put visit a place with a waterfall to my list of goals.



love and be loved
Untitled

Open your mind and heart… and shall be greatly rewarded.

BLOG

I write nearly 3 times per week on my blog…

Still Working...

One raise down… a million more to go.



forgive myself for my son's fathers death
An unspoken bond...

Now that I have forgiven myself… I can’t seem to figure out why I thought it was my fault to begin with. I think it was just a matter of me not wanting to accept he was gone.
