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.

HAVENT’T YOU DONE THE SAME THING??? ARE YOU SO FREE , THAT YOU CAN TELL ME WHY I CAN’T FLY?....

Let me put this into polite words..FUCK OFF !!! you’re are not better than me! all this time that took me to realize how negative you people are in my life…how you pull me down…how I Deserve something better…how you do not give a SHI* about me or my feelings…how you feel so much more than me…

But I now realize all this and I’m making a promise to myself…MAYBE I AM CRAP RIGHT NOW…But In words of John Mayer… “SOMEDAY I’LL BE SO DAMN MUCH MORE!”...It’s time to stop this…time for me to LET GO…timeto finish what I haven’t even started yet…Pick Myself up..from the ashes…broken hearted…beaten….HOWEVER I AM….

It’s Time to kick your Ass by making my life a life worth living…this is the ultimate proof that I am so much better than you make me feel about myself…

There’s a lot of Work to be Done…BUT HELL YEAH !! I CAN MAKE IT AND ONE DAY YOU WILL BE LOOKING AT ME UPWARDS AND I WILL BE LOOKING AT YOU FROM HIGH ABOVE THE TOP OF ALL MY DREAMS….
