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.

hopenaI have been doing this a lot, lately

I’ve been up more during the night, than the day – something I want to change, especially since it’s Spring. When this picture was taken, I was sick, and half-awake, listening to the rain fall outside. 7 months ago

DayDreamer37There are only two ways to live your life

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is though everything is a miracle.”

and watched part of a movie with William Powell and Myrna Loy called “I Love You Again” (1940). Now let me go and finish watching it and get a good night’s sleep.

Today was a wonderfully ordinary day! 19 months ago

DayDreamer37Part of the magic of ordinary days is the routine...

Routine means you’re doing something over and over again, and most likely getting better and better at it…then the Law of Accumulation takes effect. The Law of Accumulation states that consistency brings results.

For example by watching a bit of a movie here and there (it took me 4 days to watch Frank Sinatra’s film “Hole in the Head”) I’ve managed to watch more than 1200 films over the last decade. This was great fun and I did it little by little over thousands of “ordinary” days. 19 months ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyMost, But Magical

Most of my days seem ordinary to the outsider, but most of them are actually magical. I see the things God is doing in my life as He often speaks to me in symbols and sort of like those logical puzzles I have done since I was a child.

He loves speaking to me in code and I love it. It’s very personal. Sometimes when I am so wrapped up in myself, I forget to see the magic of every single day. But, when I am aware, I feel so warm and fuzzy that I am so special to God that He makes my days magical, making the ordinary into the extraordinary. 19 months ago

DayDreamer37I love it at night when...

there is a lot of activity. The kids will be doing their homework, I’ll be cooking and working on a little craft project. I love having a home where everyone is active, positive and productive. 20 months ago

DayDreamer37fluffy pajama pants and a t-shirt

I happily took a bath and put on my pjs. The pajama pants are new, I recently bought them for a trip and I love wearing them while I’m on the couch studying or at the computer writing. I want to get some more and wild colorful socks I would never wear outside. 2 years ago
