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.

MMiller0601Another step toward peace in my environment

This is so simple, but has SUCH an impact – making the bed after we get up in the morning. I can’t explain it, but knowing that the bed is neat and ready for me at night is soothing. It makes my bedroom seem so much more appealing.

Note, the bed in the picture is NOT mine, but I do like it :-)22 months ago

MMiller0601Steps toward peace

I realize that one thing I need to do – and soon – is clean up the clutter, particularly around my desk. I know that sounds like an odd step toward peace, but all this clutter is making me anxious and I think that ridding myself of that will definitely be a step toward peace in my home. 2 years ago
