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.

Successes, things I did well (read all 7 entries…)
lots of things today

I am grateful to be getting my home back into shape, after neglecting it to support another person, who no longer wants my support.

I am happy and grateful that I received a response from my friend that I haven’t heard from in over a year. I miss her & am so grateful she’s not annoyed at me, like I thought she was. I cried tears of gratitude as I read it.

I am happy and grateful that I finally plucked up the courage and sent her that email, and another one that I did last week- both resulted in very positive outcomes!

I also went to the women’s health centre, which is less than a mile from me, to sign up for cheaper holistic treatments, unfortunately they were closed for their Summer holidays, but I’ll go back on Monday and sign up.

I was persistent, clear & calm requesting a telephone conversation with a business client (who is also recently my ex), so that we could establish boundaries around a working relationship going forward.

I conducted that business conversation calmly, and with dignity, despite my being so extremely hurt & angry by him. I want to finish the project, because I love doing this type of work & I know it will bring results in his business, and I love being part of that. It sucks that it’s for him though, if I’m honest. Because I don’t believe he valued me, and I believe as soon as he realised how ill I actually am, that at the moment I’m not the high powered, energetic business woman that I usually am, he stopped loving me.

So the success around that is, he wasn’t treating me appropriately, I communicated that it was unacceptable- I am no longer in an unsatisfying relationship= Woo Hooo!!! That is success in my book! (despite my heart feeling like it’s been ripped out).

During the conversation with him, he brought something person in, and I calmly and clearly communicated that it was a personal issue, and not up for discussion in our business relationship. I said “I am happy to be civil and have a good business relationship with you, but discussion of anything person is off the table”

Well done me!!!!!!!!

Woooooo Hoooooooooooooo!!!!
