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.

Marveen Filipino Network Marketer"Dream Stealers"

One simple thing, you set goals that are S.M.A.R.T.(Specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, Timed based). In that scenario, you did make a good set of things in your mind then right it either in a piece of paper or blog it.
The bad thing here is, there are still many people around us that are very pessimistic. Most of the time, they will tell you that you can’t achieve anything because your weak or just impossible to make it. The story of Colonel Sanders always inspires me to do things that is quite hard to finish. The story itself tells us to try and try until we succeed like Col. Sanders.
My concern here is very simple,I don’t want people around me that are negative. My extreme challenge that I face now is my mom. She always naggs me about my small mistakes and always brings up the past. Oh, how can I get rid of her and he negative nature? Her negative energy is too contagious. It leads me to nowhere and my SMART goals are cluttered everytime she’s mad. Hhahahhaa 2 years ago

user2637Just did this for 2012, but has been constant the past 2 years

It’s like washing your clothes, and cleaning house. Must be done on a regular basis to stop and keep dirty, negative and undesirable emotions and karma from these people off your spirit. 2 years ago

Mary GeraldineWell...

I find myself thinking about people who affect me negatively less and less. I also find that the negativity that is present is bothering me less and less. It seems that becoming upset due to someone else’s words/actions takes too much energy.

I have removed a couple of negative people from my life altogether recently. I have also decided to play nicely with the ones who I cannot remove due to certain circumstances. If I am positive and determined to not let their negativity affect me adversely, then it’s no longer my problem.

I’m marking this as done for now. If I see myself being drawn back to the same type of person in the future I will re-add the goal. But for now I just need to remember that I can’t control other people, only how those people affect ME. 3 years ago
