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.

shanefilmMans search for meaning

By Victor E Frankel

What does life expect of me. The author explained that as long as one is aware of ones unique purpose in life that only they can accomplish, the will to endure will remain. This can also motivate persons to form new habits instead of quitting. Make the connection. 20 months ago

shanefilmAttended lean startup weekend

I worked with some great people this weekend. Our team was tech heavy and we built a functional application.

Our pitch however was not polished. The feedback we received from the judges was that they dud not understand the product although it gad real value.

The product was an application that would instruct the user on how to communicate more effectively with the person you love, based on survey results. Experts and others would recommend specific actions to increase the bond between that couple. This user generated content would be ranked according to feedback received from those that employed it. In the back-end the app had the potential of collecting data in the persons emotion state that could be mined for future purchasing patterns.

The team also had a couple copy writer and accountant, Tim and Kelly. They produced some excellent presentation materials and some financials to back it up. I’m looking forward to working more with them.

I learned that Angel investors will invest in the person more so than a good idea. However, that idea needs to be presented in clear and concise terms to its understood. It also must indicate how money can be made from the project. 2 years ago

shanefilmRichest Man in Babylon

I’ve been listening to the audio book again. It’s a lit better than junk talk shows and politics.

We have done good with savings and controlling out expenses.

Investing and putting my gold to work will be my next array of focus. I’ve also had to admit that this is the area that has cost me the most. I’ve made poor investments seeking wild returns.

Even when investing in stocks, instead of cutting my loses I would unwisely hold on. I would do better to seek safe returns with minimal risks.

I need to find safe investments.
We also need a better budget, one that is more exact. I want to know how much I have to spend. This past month I had a few expenses I could have avoided. 2 years ago

shanefilmThe Power of Habit

An NPR article turned me onto this one. I applied some of it today by taking a brisk walk after lunch around the mall instead of whatever it was I used to do. I think it was watching YouTube videos. I talked to Valyncia afterwards. I need to clarify what my reward is and better understand what I crave. Perhaps I could talk with our Psychologist friends. 2 years ago

shanefilmMemory book is a good one

I will begin doing exercises today. Again, I will follow the 3 phase 90 day approach. Develop the habit first, using the quick stat method of experiencing wins and remaining motivated. This phase is about the doing of something new that is not challenging, only pleasurable and rewarding. Some activities will need to have the instant gratification experienced indirectly through tracking or journal using game. But the idea is to develop the habit of doing the new activity consistently and repetitively without experiencing consequences of failure or perceiving failure. The success is I. The doing only. That is the measurement of success in the quick start phase.

Conditioning will be next. It prepares of for training or deep practice. That is that last phase I. Which we operate at the edge of our abilities to push beyond perceived limits. These limits are overcome with a specific method of isolated step by step approach to repeat an activity until that step is mastered before moving forward. 2 years ago

shanefilmFinished the talent code

It was worth reading, but talent us over rated is a lot better. This book stated that material in the brain continues to grow when we make and learn from mistakes by repetition. I had already surmised that you should make a mistake everyday. Meaning that reputation allows us to get better. The trick is to have a plan designed to practice in our fields of expertise

How this relates to the mundane millionaire, is that instead of fretting that we missed our window. Embrace a field and apply deliberate practice to make the transition and achieve excellence. These books will be great for patenting decisions. 3 years ago
