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.

I think I’ve been getting better at this lately. I broke up with my boyfriend who I knew wasn’t right for me. As nice as it was having him around and as much as I liked the comfort of it, I broke up with him anyway. This was a huge step of me being honest to myself about my feelings, and then being honest with him about it all too.
I’ve realized that yes, there are times to lie (like white lies). But most people appreciate straightforwardness and actually knowing whats going on rather than having to guess or wonder. This is also something the (ex)boyfriend taught me. And it takes a lot of stress off of you to just speak your mind and tell the truth. 22 months ago

Once I was honest with myself, it was much easier to be honest with others. If I value myself, I value the people that I keep around me, therefore I want to tell them the truth. If someone is offended by the truth or I lose friends because I am honest, so be it. 2 years ago
