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.

be happy (read all 5 entries…)
this will be my number one goal

until I find true happiness.

There have been numerous changes in my life over the last few months. My son moved out, I refinanced my house on my own, I started and ended a relationship, my company was purchased and I still have my job.

I’ve rolled with all the punches and think that I may be well on my way to finding what truly makes me happy. It’s not anyone thing, it’s more complicated than that.

It’s finding true love, taking care of things on my own, keeping a roof over my head and a comfortable home and doing all the things that make me happy.

I think true love is hard to find and the other things are much easier. Things start out well usually, but they deteriorate or they change and you realize that it wasn’t what you really wanted in the first place. Maybe I need to be a better communicater or maybe I need to know when it’s time to move on a little sooner. Not sure, but I am still working on this one.

This will have to be my top goal until I achieve that complete happiness I am looking for.


lovingmex43 is focused for 2013

how are you doing on this goal

are you still working on being happy?

It’s been a challenge for sure. Some days good and some are bad. Wish I knew all the answers.
