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.

Practice Yoga (read all 7 entries…)
my yoga mantras

& the latest book I’m reading has opened my mind & body to how my thoughts are creating the life I have. I practiced yoga for only 15 minutes today because I was trying to get tons of stuff done. But even in that 15 mins I noticed how much calmer my mind became and how my body quickly relaxed.

I’m convinced that a steady practice can only lead to good things.

so ticked off today I'm fuming

I can no longer get on at work. Yeah I know why am I complaining I mean after all it’s company time but seriously there are hours at my job with nothing to do.

This site was helping me to chill out. Now it’s gone from my day so now I’m fuming. I keep telling myself this kind of stuff is a sign from the heavens to burn myself clean & start everything from scratch including my profession!!

Errrggggg now I feel the ring of fire round my ankles.

I started "Wreck this Journal"

And it’s been opening my imagination doors & getting those creative juices flowing. It’s been a find of art therapy & it gets me to use the left brain more.

Since my piano is tune dead I’ve needed something for artistic inspiration & right now it’s doing the trick. I’m gonna post some of my entry’s soon.

Inspired by foxing boxing & my recent find

I went shopping on 2/1/09 and was feeling a little guility about spending money since I’m trying to save. On my way from one store to the next I found $20. Felt a little guility but if I didn’t pick it up someone else would have. Just trying this out as an experiment.

P.S. Does the money that I found in the coffee machine that ppl left count? I found $2.50.

the green tree frog

I have a pic of a green tree frog taped to the back wall of my desk @ work. he’s got a big bulging orange eye. Neon green skin that pops. Blue and purple undertones on his legs. And an off white belly. He’s hanging off a plant stem of somekind. he just looks cute & makes me smile. :)

kinda like the one i posted here, although that’s not exactly the pic I have.

'cleansweep' my life up to 100% ( (read all 7 entries…)
Week 1

I’m going to pick one thing from each category and work on it every week until I meet the goal.

Physical: My personal files, papers, and receipts are neatly filed away.
This should be easy enough.

Well-Being: I have just the right amount of sleep.
I’ve been trying to get up when my alarm goes off. So this will help me complete one goal & add a point to the checklist.

Money: All my tax returns have been filed and all my taxes have been paid.
Another 43T goal. Can have this completed by this week.

Relationships: I am complete with past loves or spouses.
I want to let go of all of my negative feelings about my exes
