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.

AOKToday is

a good day to remember the importance of this. It has been full of emotional twists and turns and it isn’t yet noon.

My mind, heart, and spirit feel unbalanced. Self-talk is very negative, I feel incredibly sad and lonely, and my back is very sore. I have stretched and cried and stretched and cried. The only thing left for me to do now I s to let go and breathe.

We are all packed up ready to go to the city for the day and hubby needs us to make a detour an hour north. City is south. Going to be a day of a lot of driving. Somehow this feels very okay and comforting to me. I will be able to be still inside and yet be in motion.

a work was a whirlwind. Baby Fi was with my folks along with B. Each day at work I had to keep focused on what was directly in front of me. 1 year ago

and smiled. That was almost 4 years ago. I can’t say the same of today. In fact, as I was browsing my list it occurred to me that this may be one of my most difficult daily goals.

Just tonight I found myself getting very riled up over the most recent antics of my co-worker. She drives me nuts! I just need to breathe, breathe, breathe through this. It will pass. AND I have to remember:

“she is doing the best she is able to do at her current level of consciousness”
