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.

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” 12 months ago

13ettyQuote By Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” 12 months ago

Om NamoI Always Know That Something Will Need to Be Reappraised

Whenever I get the weekly reminder to Find Beauty in Everything I sometimes cringe because my experience after receiving this email over the years is that there will be some gift either present or presented that will appear on its cover as hard or difficult but simply needs to be Re-Appraised for what it really reflects.
There is truly beauty in everything. What we consider dying can be full of beauty, light and tremendous opening but most often we do no appraise it so. All of this experience is simply a play of beautiful light and energy; dancing, merging, and creating the most beautiful tapestry of Life and more Life.

All is well. Truly Well 2 years ago
