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.

halojenthe begining... again

ok so really im a lapsed morning meditator. ive had a great practice before but that was before i moved in with my boyfriend and had a longer commute. I really have to fight to get up extra early to meditate. I do meditate within my yoga practice but the habit of meditating in the morning every day was the BEST thing to keep me calm and happy the day through. So why aren’t i doing it?!!!

Ok action. From tomorrow, I’m going to get up at 6am and meditate every day for a week. I’ll aim for 20min and see how i go. Wish me luck! 4 years ago


I’ve been making sure I meditate daily, but for some reason it’s so hard to get the motivation to do it once you wake up in the morning. So far I’ve consistently doing it at night before bed, which I would think would have less of benefit. I really enjoy the peace and comfort that goes along with meditating. Time to start my day off with this. (crosses fingers that I keep motivated enough.) 4 years ago

Kat IngallsMeditation goal

My meditation is writing. I’ve learned this. Crossing this goal off when my goal of “write every day” is accomplished, as I’ve realized these are actually the same goal. :) 4 years ago


i have been walking four miles every morning and that’s so helpful to heal from the grief of losing my daughter, my father and a best friend all in one year as well as ending a very toxic relationship. but the walking isn’t enough…i still have a great deal of anger coming up, and the meditation helps me become the ‘watcher’ and detach from identifying myself as my thoughts or my feelings. the meditation keeps me mindful of Divinity. 5 years ago


ok, so why meditate ? to relax, become more centered, I expect. And become more able to stop procrastinating the care with myself. I came back from Brazil with a weird sense of being null and I really believe it’s just my fault: I began a cycle of putting others ahead of my own interests and needs and the result – I feel bad and lacking energy for coming back to my self-esteem, self- support, self communication, self in the best sense of the word. It might be very common for people to do this: feeling down. It is too common for me to feel down and to relate to feeling behind because… what do I expect ? I should have written down this thought when I got back from therapy two weeks ago. There was something wrong with putting other people ahead, and there was a thought behind it… can I redeiscover it ???
Maybe, through meditating, my mind would be able to listen to these thoughts!
I still don’t believe. What is missing here ? Maybe nothing, maybe everything ! I want to build something, and I feel it will start from my self assessment… 5 years ago


I’m changing the verb here to meditate because walk is included in physical activities.
By the way, meditate should have always been here. I did that sometimes and the goal is really be regular. It can make me drowsy in the morning, though, sitting on a chair. So I’m sitting on the floor or mat from now on and hopefully I’ll stick with that habit as well. 6 years ago

mason0824Going well...

I meditate for 5-10 minutes on the days I am off. I admit I need to make more of an effort to meditate when I am going to work. I feel more patient and at peace when I take those few minutes to focus on my breathing. 6 years ago
