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.

I've come to the realization

that I absolutely LOVE my life. I believe I am right where I am supposed to be and I think that I am surrounded by people I love who love me right back. I have a wonderful life. Its not always an easy life but I am lucky to have the people I do in my life. I have a wonderful daughter, wonderful boyfriend, great family and a bunch of really great friends! I am super happy!

The only reason I say I “come to the realization” is after listening to my neighbor here complain about all the problems with her husband and marriage, I’m thrilled to death that I finally have found what I was looking for and I am not going through what she is going through. I try to give her advice but she isn’t ready to follow it yet. I think she likes drama and stress. I do not. I am so happy to say that my life is generally calm and happy!



happiness...

I’ve always been fairly happy and upbeat. Sure there are crappy days that make me want to scream or cry but the majority of my days are ok b/c I can look on the positive side of things. About 5-1/2 years ago when I was married, we started having problems and while I didn’t know what was wrong or what was going on, I come to find out later he was cheating on me. Anyways, I ended up in a depression and on meds. They called it “situational”. I lost a lot of weight, I was down under 100 pounds, I cried all the time, slept all the time, it was just a terrible terrible time. Once I left him, I met someone else and I went off the meds (yes, on my own, which I know I shouldn’t have done, but I did) anyways, I just never want to rely on someone else for my happiness. So, that is what this goal is about. Finding happiness from within.
