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.

LanaDreams into Reality

A funny thing happened. I had an intense dream about wanting to finally start meditating. I woke up, did my usual morning scanning of my favorite pages and one of the first articles that popped up was an invitation to a meditation workshop which was happening on Saturday, a couple of blocks from where I live. It was wonderful, so much more than I hoped for. 5 months ago


Since realising that I do better with this when I meditate outside, I am going to try that instead. the indoors eyes closed method doesn’t work for me. It’s probably related to one of the hindrances “desire for sensory experience” but I also think I feel more stressed when my eyes are closed. 5 months ago


It doesn’t always fill me with bliss, but I’m doing it as regularly as I can. 5 months ago

BrishenAlstonFeels Better...

Guided Meditation has proven better for me than taking a nap midday.

It seems to take a lot of energy to fall asleep while with meditation I can just slip into this state of mind that is blissful & one that can be woken up from easily that doesn’t feel groggy.

It just works for me,

Would like to find 10-15 minutes to commit to meditation each day, to start off. Will look into basic stances for meditation and begin practicing this week. 6 months ago

May (31)
I did Mindfulness in May, having definitely meditated for 30 of the 31 days, there’s one I’m not completely sure whether I did or not but I’ll give myself the benefit of the doubt. This year I’ve finally started to get some regularity and that is particularly true this month.

I learned meditation from headspace and it has simply been magical. Everyone should try to meditate as I feel so active and fresh after a session of meditation. 7 months ago
