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.

get the hell out of here (read all 26 entries…)
Mostly packed

And plenty of time left to go. Have noticed that virtually everything we own falls into two categories: rock specimens and fragile items. As long as I don’t put them together in the same box, I think we’ll be okay.

be at peace with myself all the time even in times of extreme stress (read all 3 entries…)
The workshop really helped

I released a lot of stress and came home to my hubby who had gotten a lot more done than I had anticipated. We have more than enough time now to get everything done. And everything is gonna be fine. Always is. Eventually. :)

Master the Release Technique (read all 2 entries…)
And boy did it!

Took the workshop. The cool thing about the workshops is that they force you to do a lot of practice in a very short time. Had a great time and came home feeling very, very good.

My practice of this technique has been very haphazard, to say the least, so it was nice to see additional gains from practicing and to realize that I had seen some gains previously, I just hadn’t been focusing on it.
