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.

mrsradThis has become much more important.

Things are not going too well at work, perhaps more in my head than in reality. But I do know that I can’t keep doing what I’ve been doing. The definition of insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results. I know in the past, the more connected I was to my spirituality, the more happiness I had in my life and it was really what was going on in my head. Soooo, I could really use some suggestions or ideas on what I can do to get more connected. I am not a church type of person, so that is not an option for me 4 years ago

mrsradGoing on a silent retreat next weekend

I used to go to this retreat every year when I lived in chicago. I think I went 7 years straight. And since I’ve moved to California I’ve been back twice I think. But I’m flying out on Friday to go again this year. My bff and others I know will also be there.

I love this retreat. Silence is really golden. It is usually very restorative for me to go on these retreats. There is no talking from after dinner on Friday night until noon on Sunday. We all eat in the dining hall and there is no talking during meals. It amazing how much energy you can use trying to communicate with others. I always find this weekend to be one of taking stock of the year and focusing on what is important. 5 years ago
