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.

Starting Fresh

Well, the uncertain situation I’ve been in for the last month has become more certain. We’re done for good. It’s a long story & I’m pretty frustrated right now, but what I do know is that its better now rather than later. I see now that he will never face his fears or his issues head on, he chooses to run away. And as he has been doing for the last three years, when the fear passes he’ll be back at my door wanting me again but this time will be different and I won’t be there. I know my worth and I deserve someone who will be there for me in the good times and the not so good times and ending this now frees me up to go find someone who can give me what I want from a relationship. I might be sad right now but I know that the future is bright :)

I can totally relate ..

My abusive ex was like this only it took me 18 months to realise he had spent his adult life running away from his issues through addictions and when given the chance to turn things around for himself it was never enough.

Recently i met up with a guy i’d dated 6 years ago, we had a great time, almost like old times but when it came right down to it he used the same excuses he had used 6 years ago.

Being with the abusive ex has taught me one thing, no amount of love can help someone who doesn’t want to be helped and now i won’t settle for anything less than comittment and compromise.


I want to:
