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.

ugogrlMissed my meditation group

two Sundays in a row but I will make sure to sit for @ least 30 mins tonight. 3 years ago

ugogrlContinuing with my weekly meditation group

I had an interesting sit this past Sunday. I’ve been struggling to deal with some pain I have on my right side from an old injury and I was able to make some peace with the pain during my meditation. 3 years ago

ugogrlWent to meditation at my regular sangha today

It was a small group because many people went upstate to hear Thich Nhat Hahn speak during a day of mindfulness. I will have to settle for the online video. 3 years ago

ugogrlThis upcoming Sunday I'm planning to visit

another sangha in Brooklyn, NY.
I’m looking forward to seeing how this group differs from my own. 3 years ago

ugogrlBeen attending my sangha for the last month

My meditation practice is deepening 3 years ago

ugogrlDoing this in spurts

I’m just having an all around difficult time 3 years ago

ugogrlAlready fell off the meditation wagon....


I’ve had good intentions in keeping up a daily practice but I’m not that diligent. Trying at least. 3 years ago

ugogrlI brought a meditation cushion

and used it last night for a 40 minute sitting. With a candle and incense lit, I was able to find a center of gravity and let the mind do what it needed to do.

ugogrlThis morning

I attended a meditation. I recently joined a group and this is the second meeting I’ve gone to. Well, third if I count last weeks ceremony at the park.

Beginning a weekly meditation practice is my goal. In the past I had every intention of making this happen but somehow I didn’t set a time for just sitting.

Today I will commit myself to sitting for at least 15 minutes a day. 3 years ago

ugogrlWent to a meditation/Buddhist class yesterday

While the class focused on love mainly I was able to get in a 10 minute meditation.

It felt good but I realized that sitting in Lotus Pose just isn’t that easy for me after injury to my ankle several years ago. I will work on stretching and see if that helps. 3 years ago

ugogrlWent to my first meditation group today

I got there on time but the session didn’t start for another half hour. This gave me time to stroll the beautiful building (see pic that I got off of there website). The interior is as impressive of the outside grounds.

We sat for approximately 20 minutes. Followed by a walking meditation and the another seated meditation.

It was interesting and I plan on making the next meeting this coming Sunday. 3 years ago

ugogrl15 minutes

last night on the mat and I was ready to jump out of my skin

I’m having a hard time with sleep lately and haven’t had much energy to run this week. I was hoping that a meditation would aid in a restful night but it didn’t seem to make the difference. Still I need to continue. 3 years ago
