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.

1. What did I learn last week? That I thought he was my love and I think I am not. I think he likes to talk to me. and now I think he is messing with my mind, my reactions. I dont enjoy it as much.

2. What was my greatest accomplishment over the past week? packing, working, getting kids to Drs and me.

3. Which moment from last week was the most memorable and why? memorable when I was verbally lectured and am acting like it was helpful. What a liar I am.

6. What have I struggled with in the past that might also affect the upcoming week?
My image. I feel old, 51 is old. I want to be liked by my friends and I think I look bad and ugly and they dont enjoy seeing my down face.
Cannot help it.
Turn off the webcam.
7. What was last week’s biggest time sink? talking too much on skype.
8. Am I carrying any excess baggage into the week that can be dropped?well, just that I rate myself according to how much this man seems to like me.
I think he has lost a lot of interest and gained a lot of arrogance due to me being so caring and loving.

9. What have I been avoiding that needs to get done? well, I need to move and pack and throw stuff out, and work. Quit thinking someone is in love with me.
Just quit ,

16. What’s the next step for each goal? facing facts with my move, the kids schooling choices for their books and start taking stock of what I want and have to offer a love.
This LDR is killing me.

.17. What am I looking forward to during the upcoming week? switching up my talking time with my so called LDR.
He is not available , is too faraway and probably still just thinks I am a good friend.
I had my chance and blew it.

18. What are my fears? that I will miss him too much and not fully understand his true feelings and blow it again.
Fearful that I will never be as happy as I have when connected to him.
Fearful that I will regret giving up on him.. fearful also that I will waste another yr, already been 3…
with feelings for him that are too onesided.
I do more writing and more devotion personally.
He is more general and universal( can get boring) but he is someone to talk to, another adult, and he knows me.
He is funny lots of the time…
but he also talks more than me, does not think I am that funny and says I need to love myself.
bah, I thought I already did.
Why is he always right?

“please forgive me, thank you, i love you and I am sorry” today and the rest of the week.
