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.

valerenaGratitude journal

I’ve started writing a daily gratitude journal. I downloaded an app for my iPad and every evening I write down a few things I’m grateful for. I often forget, so I have to get better at remembering to do it, but it really does help me put things into perspective.

I am grateful for very simple things. A warm home, a comfortable bed, a warm place for my children to sleep. Food to fill my children’s bellies. Living in a safe neighborhood. Not living in a war zone. My health and my family’s health. Warm coats. There really is so much to be grateful for. 8 months ago

patpatkayLife is Cool

My school had this requirement for my classmates and I to go this orphanage and live like them for five days. I used to be a spoiled brat and I complained about literally everything but being with these orphans was a real eye opener. They didn’t have anyone or anything and yet, they could still manage to smile. I, on the other hand, if I didn’t like the food served on the table, would grumble and eat in bitter thoughts. These kids have taught me that happiness doesn’t come in material things or getting what you want but is an attitude that you have to choose. 9 months ago
