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.

I didn’t join the group at meditation tonight, in order to be able to have supper with my friend LMc—hard to believe we’ve known each other since 1986!

While I’m sorry that I couldn’t join the sangha at the sit, I’m very pleased that my friend & I are still close after all these years (& despite so many others falling away). smile1 day ago


Colleen_C_C15 July

As a result of a work issue that ran late, I did not join the group at meditation sigh (I did, however, get to eat supper out with my spouse – who had also worked late & come home frustrated – since I wasn’t attending the meditation session smile). 1 week ago


Colleen_C_C8 July

My meditation session was, as usual, very worthwhile—a nice bit of quiet time to enjoy! We did two 25-minute sits, with kinhin (walking meditation) in between & a communal reading of sutras (chants) at the end. smile2 weeks ago


Colleen_C_C1 July

Had to take work home with me, which ran too late for me to be able to join the meditation group for tonight’s sit. sigh3 weeks ago


Colleen_C_CJune (near)Hiatus

Although I missed the first three meditation sessions this month, I resumed the weekly sits with my regular group again tonight, with the last meeting of the month. smile4 weeks ago

Although I’m not scheduling any meditation sessions this month, I hope to resume weekly sits with my regular group soon. 2 months ago


Colleen_C_CApril Goal: Completed

My goal was to attend four of the five Tuesday evening meditation sessions in April; as it turned out, I was unable to attend any. I’ve been missing my practice, & my friends in the sangha. sigh2 months ago


Colleen_C_C29 April

Had to work too late to be able to join the meditation group for the sit. sigh2 months ago


Colleen_C_C22 April

Taking a long lunch meant working later, & then choosing to take a nap after getting off work later meant no chance to join the meditation group tonight (but I think that walking in the park at lunch time should count as “Walking Meditation” grin). 3 months ago


Colleen_C_C15 April

Had to work too late to be able to join the meditation group for the sit. sigh3 months ago


Colleen_C_C8 April

Took the opportunity to attend a job-related event & met work-friends for supper afterward, rather than joining the meditation group at the sit (& also found myself wishing I had a clone, so that I could do both things! wry grin). 3 months ago


Colleen_C_C1 April

Went home after work & took a nap rather than joining the meditation group (too tired to remain awake during quiet periods of sitting: possibly fighting off yet another germ?). 3 months ago


Colleen_C_CApril Goal

It is my intention to attend four of the five Tuesday evening meditation sessions in April (to be held on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, & 29th). 4 months ago


Colleen_C_C March Goal Completed

Colleen_C_C25 March

Tonight after work I went home & took a nap rather than joining the meditation group (I was so tired that I couldn’t remain awake during the quiet periods of sitting: wonder if my body is fighting off some germ?). 4 months ago


Colleen_C_C18 March

Took the opportunity to go out to meet with a friend rather than joining the meditation group at the sit (wishing that it were possible to clone myself isn’t really in the spirit of “Be Here Now,” eh? wry grin). 4 months ago


Colleen_C_C11 March

My meditation session was, as usual, very worthwhile—a nice bit of quiet time to enjoy! We did two 25-minute sits, with kinhin (walking meditation) in between & a communal reading of sutras (chants) at the end. smile4 months ago

Colleen_C_C18 February

Took the opportunity to go out to eat with friends after work tonight, rather than rushing to join the meditation group at the sit (probably the right choice…). I suppose that wishing it were possible to clone myself isn’t very much in the spirit of “Be Here Now”? wry grin5 months ago

Colleen_C_C26 January

I feel badly that I wasn’t able to join the group at today’s meditation retreat, as planned (I always find those retreats so worthwhile); however, since I’m still hacking & coughing too much to be able to participate without causing disruption, I’m glad that I found other pleasant & useful things to do instead. smile5 months ago
