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 have had perserverance in my life through all my trials. And I have had trials….more than most. I have to say, I am getting weary and feel like I could use a break!

I am not a perfectionist

I am so not a perfectioninst. I always here myself say, “good enough” I know I got this from my mother. I often would here her say, “good enough.”

I used to be a perfectionist in many areas. Drove myself into a chronic illness. When I was really ill is when I practiced my “good enough” because that was all I could do. It was difficult to start, not doing everything perfectly, but over time I managed to conquer my perfectionist attitude. (O.K I did just double check the word “conquer” for spelling) Maybe I need to work on my “good enough” for awhile longer.

I am a thoughtful person

I generally consider other peoples thoughts and feelings in my words and actions

I am an honest person

I will tell the truth even when it would be much easier to lie

I am a nice person

I will go out of my way to help a stranger, even if it totally inconviences me
