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.

- The Robots.

Happiness is...

...popping back in after an extended hiatus and finding everyone still here, lovely and progressing as ever.



Happiness is...

...catching myself doodling hearts.



Happiness is...

...a pedicure appointment set for after work, and nothing else on the agenda for tonight.



Happiness is...

... living fully and completely in the present.



Happiness is...

...finishing Week 6 of the Couch to 5k running program!



Happiness is...

...BossMan heading out the door and saying with a smile, “I won’t look in my rearview mirror.”

My cue to take an early quit. And it’s sunny outside!



Happiness is...

...knowing I did the right thing, in spite of the pain.



Happiness is...

...BossMan saying ‘Let’s see if we can get you outta here early today so you can start your vacation.’ I’ve just gotta finish up my (somewhat daunting) list of tasks, and as soon as it’s done I’m gone. SO… off to conquer the list!



Happiness is...

...chatting on facebook with a friend I’ve known for umpteen years but haven’t connected with lately, sharing stories about the joys and woes of single life, realizing we have both had a run-in with the same icky man, her calling me from Japan, and the two of us laughing and talking until the wee small hours of the morning.



Happiness is...

...getting back to the stability of my routine.
