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.

How to list qualities the perfect mate(for me) should have


(This comment was deleted.)

iamevoxus there is freedom in letting go

hey mrcreed

firstly, its probably good that u gave up on this goal… cos making a list of all the attributes ur perfect mate should have… well… when i see people doing this… i jsut think well good luck with that… ur more than likely gonna stay single if u have all those conditions…. thats just my thought on it. also, ur perfect mate will come along when u least expect it, i trully believe that,.

also yeah its cliche, but no one can love you until u love yourself… so start loving urself, take care of urself, do the things u enjoy, try new things, spend time with friends and family – u will feel happier and content and in doing so, ur soulmate will gravitate towards this happy cool person. if ur in a indifferent/negative space, people arent atracted to that. so u have to be what u what you want in ur life, and the kind of person you want. basically as ghandi said, u have to be the change u want to see.

dont give up on urself ok ! sorry if this came accross as a sermon, wasnt meant to be :) (and yeah i know its easy to talk, but try and stay positive) – good luck whatever u do

Love yourself

Can include a list of a perfect mate´s ideal qualities
. Then cultivate these traits in yourself to ever be worthy of such a mate.

mrcreed has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.
