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.

ActuallyloveI hope I can do this...

I really want to be a better partner to my man. I’ve been difficult, demanding, and critical. He has/had so much love for me, and it seems I’ve killed it with my criticism.

I really really want us to go back to old times. I want to get over my intimacy issues…stop pushing him away. Cultivate romance and passion again.

Is it ever too late? It feels like I’ve pushed him to the edge and we have nothing in common anymore, but it’s also because i’ve pushed him away so much and there’s so much defensiveness in me. The wall of defensiveness needs to come down! 4 years ago

It’s so hard to open up and make sense. Everything is just so hard. 8 years ago

mommytoobecause he so deserves it

I’ve got to stop letting the daily grind cause me to be such a grump. He’s been so supportive over the years and put up with a lot of sh_t from me. Why can’t I be one of these women that just goes head over heals everytime their man walks through the door? It’s like I’ve got to put on a tough front or something. But he is the LAST person I need a front with!

Very confusing… 8 years ago

imheresomewhereI'm finally getting it....I think....

I’m learning (not so much by my own choice) that other peoples wants & needs need to come first sometimes & yes, I’m going to say this out loud, are not always the wrong way to go about doing something just because it’s not the way I would have chosen to do it. 9 years ago


Stop expecting him to do things the way I would and start realizing that what I love about him is that he is so much UNlike me. 9 years ago
