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.

overcome my eczema

more insights…. in chinese medicine, the liver stands for hun (the heavenly soul) which is about trusting the universe, focusing intentions. hun provides propulsion to change, and is about expression of our emotional self to the fullest. creative expression helps here as does the ability to forgive oneself and others. and appropriate expression of our emotions of course.

a lack of this energy shows as stagnated, retained anger, because of which we cannot move forward, depression, lack of courage, no feeling of purpose in our lives, frustration.

omigod i can’t believe how accurate this all is/was. i was a master at repressing my feelings and who i really was. even repressed my art for the sake of my career. now i know exactly how to change. i’m so grateful to my body for showing me so beautifully what has been going wrong. thank you. 8 years ago

nitzscheanger / kindness / boundaries

did some really interesting research about this lately. apparently eczema is connected with the liver not functioning at its optimum. i looked up the emotional correlation to liver – lo and behold – it is about kindness, not only to others, also to yourself. about respecting your own boundaries. something i have struggled with all my life – i have always let others override me, even though inside me something was screaming: NOOOOO ! i can actually correlate particularly bad episodes of eczema with particularly bad episodes of forcing myself to ignore my boundaries and being angry at myself for it.
i think i’m really on to something here. and guess what, the moment you are kind to yourself you can be so much more genuinely kind to others too. 8 years ago
