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.

Being a great wife

I believe you have to compromise with your spouse, listen and be very attentive. I noticed last year after having my second child that my husband admit to me that I paid more attention to the boys than to him. He was sick one day and said I didn’t take care of him. He would occasionally comment that I don’t listen to him. Well, I finally realized that I have to be a great listener and pay attention to him. I noticed that men are like children too in a way that they also want attention. I did take my husband for granted!!!! I think it’s difficult to balance everything out (children, work, husband, etc) I would also recommend, buying him that he likes. It doesn’t have to be expensive, example: favorite candy, sports collection, etc.

I have done that this year and I have noticed my husband being greatful and happy. So, the key factors are:

1) listen
2) attentive
3) communicate
4) affectionate
5) compromise

Good luck!!!! :)
