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 love Lukasz and I love that fact that he is in my life and would not want to lose him. I value and respect him. Sometimes I dont agree with him and the goal is to Communicate without offending him. I do want to MARRY HIM and I want us to be happy for the rest of our lives. Next time I going to start to get upset because he does not say or do something the way I would want_ I will take a break, and think “how my action will affect the way he feels”. The fact is I am selfish at times like yesterday I did not care how upset he got, I did not even think about it-I just though about HOW upset I was and I just starting shouting down on him and closing my heart so he does not HURT me. The point of the argument is to try to see how the other person feels and be kind to them, yes I will to be a pushover and agree with everything he says and does, but to make my point I should only tell him, and let him act on it, because being mean DOES NOT fit anything. Argue but kindly, lovingly and with with open heart. Accept that sometimes you will not get your way and that is OK :) you are happy just to be and your happiness does not depend on another person’s actions. I am happy just to be ME :)
