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.

Moving On

Life does not stop, it just keeps going and somehow I must too. But I have some of his things and so many good memories. I have his pictures which always either make me smile or cry.

Day 2

Today is worse than yesterday. I don’t know what to do except write and read about getting over the pain of loss. My dad was a good man. Everyone he met liked him. It seems so wrong that he’s dead when there are so many mean and evil people in the world.
I read about one person who kept telling everyone that her brother was dead. I can’t seem to help doing that too. I tell people that my father died. It seems like I’m trying to find a way to face the fact that he is dead.
What hurts the most is that it is very likely that he suffered before he died. My family has fallen apart over his death. Saddly what he always told us he wanted most was for everyone in the family to get along.
I hear it is natural to blame someone when a loved one dies. You either blame yourself or the hospital he died in or someone who cared for the person or was with the person when death occured.

I miss my dad so much

Daddy I love you so much and I miss you. I can’t stop thinking about how lively you were just a few weeks ago. Then you couldn’t even tell me if you needed anything or if you were in pain. I can’t stop crying. I can’t stop thinking I could have changed the outcome somehow. If only last week I would have… I will always remember today, Sunday November 26, as the day you died. How can there be Christmas without you? Will this pain ever go away? At least I was able to say I love you daddy. I will always, always love you.


I want to:
