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.

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyGiving Up

I really bit the dust on this. Good intentions, but I never followed through. I just don’t feel like it. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 12 - Fri, 18-Nov-2011

I totally forgot to do any EFT this day, but I did pray a bunch. That should count. I don’t recall anything bothering me this day, though. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 11 - Thurs, 17-Nov-2011

I wanted a KitKat or some chocolate. I put it in front of me and just tapped. I no longer wanted the KitKat and put it away. Yippee! Success! Thank you, God! 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 10 - Wed, 16-Nov-2011

Today I’m further annoyed at another person. Actually, this person has annoyed me greatly the past few months and I’m about to give up on her. She pleaded with one of the former leaders of the Single Moms group I belong to over the summer that she needed help and she was all alone. This leader contacted me to see if I could befriend her. So, I called her and got a hold of her the first time. That was in late June.

I met JG in May at one of our last Single Mom mtgs for the Spring session. She was pregnant then and still was over the summer. She expressed she didn’t have friends or family here and could use a friend. She said she also needed some clothes for her 4-yr old daughter that has special needs.

Last year I got some clothes for a girl in th 5-6 yrs old age range, I think, and told JG this and wanted to see if she was interested in these clothes. I think I’ve tried to meet up with her for over 4 months now, and set several times to bring it to her place. She didn’t even have to drive to me.

She’s contacted VA (one of the former leaders of Single Moms) a number of times saying she needs help. I’ve offered to make some meals for JG, bring her these girl’s clothes. She’s since had a baby boy and needs baby boy clothes. I found a mom who had a baby boy who has outgrown his clothes that was willing to give her a bunch of baby boy clothes for free. So, I’m driving around with all these clothes for her kids that she needs that she can’t seem to make the time for me to bring them to her.

Seriously, this is almost ridiculous. When the other single mom leaders express we need to help this mom who has cried out for help, I tell them that I have tried to help numerous times and to no avail. It’s always some excuse why I can’t drop off the clothes. She does not return phone calls or texts in a timely manner.

She doesn’t only do this to me, but to other people. Why cry out for help and you get offered help but not willing to even come part way forward? People are willing to come to HER place on HER timetable. This is crap.

If by this Friday she won’t allow me to drop off the clothes, I’m going to tell the leadership that I’m washing my hands clean of this and want nothing more to do with this. I think over 4 months of attempting to help this mom and she can’t accept it on her terms, it’s just bogus and stressful. I have too much on my plate and I’d rather help someone who really wants the help.

I used Robert Smith’s Faster EFT method today. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 9 - Tues, 15-Nov-2011

I didn’t do much tapping today, although, I should’ve. Just did one quick partial round of feeling annoyed at being called for a reminder to bring snacks to my small group 2 hrs before it happened. What would’ve been more appropriate is 2 days (at least) advanced notice. Thankfully the night before, since I have snack duty for my Wed small group, I picked up some extra stuff just in case I had snack duty on Tues day small group.

This person consistently does things at the last minute and runs her MK business like that (my perception). She said she was really busy. We all are really busy. A simple text message that takes less than 1 min. would’ve sufficed. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 8 - Mon, 14-Nov-2011

Yesterday was an anniversary of the death of someone I loved very much. He died on Nov. 13, 1991, shortly before I graduated college. His initials were JW. He was like a grandfather to me. He taught me how to drive at 12 yrs old. He used to take me out fishing, swimming in the lagoon. He taught me how to drive a boat and trusted me to do so. I remember dinging his orange Jeep by hitting a big boulder. He didn’t get mad.

He used to wrestle with my brothers. He was a big man, at least he seemed that way to me when I was a kid. The final 2 yrs of his life, he had cancer. I saw him go from a big man to a frail, skinny man . . . basically a bag of bones. I remember one of the last times I saw him and I made him promise that he would see me graduate from college.

I graduated May 1992. He died Nov 1991. He never made it to my graduation. I miss him terribly. I miss his wife, CW, who died Apr’06. I miss her even more. She had the greatest faith I knew of anyone.

She married a man younger than her. I don’t remember by how much, but probably 10 yrs. I always thought JW was older than her. She prayed throughout their 50+ yr marriage for the salvation of her husband. The year before he died, he asked Jesus to be his Savior.

He wasted most of a life without Christ.

My heart is so heavy today. I woke up feeling so sad and depressed, upset.

My kids need a good dad. I cannot fill the place of a dad. I’m a mom. Everyone is so busy, too busy. My kids have no one to really interact and be a good father figure for them. I’m seeing that my kids, especially my daughter right now, is having a hard time with this.

My track record with men stinks, and I don’t want to be in a relationship nor am I opened to one.

I’m feeling really down in a number of areas today. More than what I’m going to write.

Doing tapping & prayer on all these, plus more. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 7 - Sun, 13-Nov-2011

I did some tapping on a friendship I gave up in June. I thought this was a close friendship, but realized I was wrong. Learning to see if a person’s words match their actions. Actions speak louder than words. The person said I was important to him, but his actions said something else to me. Defer to the actions.

Today my life group leader confronted me on this “friendship” and asked if I was mad at the person. I said I was, rather I was hurt by the person and just didn’t find it worth anything for me to deal with. My LG leader says “my friend” wanted me to know that he loves and cares for me deeply, but that he is awfully busy.

I’ve come to learn that if I tell someone I care for them, my words must match my actions. Anyway, I felt and still feel a great wounding here, but I just don’t want to deal with the person at all. It’s another emotional thing that I just really don’t want to dredge up as I don’t think it’s worth it.

Guess there’s a lot of tapping I need to do here, but I just don’t want to keep being hurt by men. It’s easier to keep them at bay. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 6 - Sat, 12-Nov-2011

While I was at the park with my kids, I did about an hour of EFT with Brad Yates, who was on my iPod. I used some of his eTappings on addictions, food, money, success. Then, I just randomly tapped on thoughts also.

Was going to tap on some podcasts of Brad Yates and Pamela Bruner, but I just didn’t feel like listening to one of those podcasts, rather something shorter. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 5 - Fri, 11-Nov-2011

Just did a little cursory tapping along with one of Robert Smith’s videos. Since it’s Sunday and I’m writing this, I don’t really remember what exactly. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 4 - Thurs, 10-Nov-2011

I tapped for about an hour on all sorts of things – images of the past that came to mind, men, childhood, my marriages, finances, regrets.

One of the ways I know something was happening was that I was getting super thirsty. Needed lots of water. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 3 - Wed, 9-Nov-2011

I tapped on about 1/3 of #452 of Robert Smith’s YT video on “I’d rather suffer than tap on myself”. It was a long video of 27 min and I had to go do other things. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 2 - Tues, 8-Nov-2011

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyEFT Day 1 - Mon, 7-Nov-2011

1. Started off with a podcast with Carol Solomon & Robert Smith on Weight Loss.

2. Learning how to do Faster EFT with Robert Smith on YouTube. Watched a number of videos and did some Faster EFT.

Learned that I don’t have a weight problem, rather I am successful at gaining weight or maintaining weight due to my programming. I’ve never heard that before. But, Robert Smith talks about how a person successfully gains weight, and voila, I do those things.

He says that if you don’t want to be successful at gaining weight, then you need to do the things to become unsuccessful at gaining weight. That is such a new concept to me and blowing my mind away. Going to watch a few more videos of his to grasp this better.

I definitely want to learn how to successfuly release bodyfat on a regular basis. 3 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous Sufficiency1 Month

I want to do this goal for 1 month along with prayer & spending time in God’s Word, and see what happens in my life.

Though I have been subscribed to this guy for a long time on YouTube, and even PositiveCutie has shared she likes this guy’s stuff, I really have spent very little time ever watching his videos.

This morning I started watching some of his YT videos, but what got me watching was listening to a podcast on EFT Blog Talk Radio on Weight Loss with Carol Solomon.

I’m not defining how long I need to tap for, rather every day for 30 days that I am going to do EFT. I’ve known and used this tool intermittently for over 10 yrs and it’s helped tremendously.

One of the conundrums (sp?) is that for things that work and I know that if I continue, it will be even better, why I don’t do it. I brush my teeth every day because I know it’s good for me and I still do it no matter what. If only it could be like that with everything. 3 years ago

Today I started a new project with my tapping. I’m tapping on allowing more in…

More what you say?

More love, more self love, more happiness, more laughter, more joy, more clients, more money. more ideas..

And you know what I felt absolutely FANTASTIC today and it all came to me. 3 years ago

positivecutieI'm tapping along with this video.. 3 years ago


Someone kind of hurt my feelings today even though I know they would never do that deliberately. I’m a bit PMSey so a bit more sensitive than usual, anyway that’s what I’m tapping on today. 3 years ago

positivecutieTo tap on....

I’ve put aside an hour to tap this morning. I want to work on:

1) Stress about the meetings I’ve got later today
2) Stress about another social event coming up
3) Working on my issue of taking things personally (when they are not).

All you other efters out there – what are you working on? 3 years ago

positivecutieDon't take it personally...

At the moment I’m working on not taking things personally – I’m doing this with EFT and also saying to myself during the day whenever anything happens – ‘its not personal’ in a cheery voice (inside my head, not out loud).

I feel a lot less stressed and victimised and much more philosophical so I guess I should keep going with this…. 3 years ago


I’m still tapping every day. It is successfully part of my daily routine but I rarely write about it. For all you EFTers out there if you like something to ‘tap along’ to. Try the free podcasts put out by Brad Yates on itunes. I often tap along to those if I don’t have something specific I’m working on. 3 years ago


I tap everyday but rarely write entries on it.

Today I’m tapping on my fear that new people I met won’t like me. This causes me a lot of anxiety and fear. I’m working on releasing that.

What is everyone else working on with their tapping? 3 years ago
