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.

Compassion in ArtEverlasting Love

I don’t believe most people “find” everlasting love.

In real life, with humans, most people don’t find someone who will give them everlasting love.

For me, everlasting love is a choice. Repeatedly, I’ve made the decision to give someone else everlasting love. While feelings are involved, it’s been more of a decision than a “finding” or a “lucky circumstance.”

Some people don’t “find” everlasting loves. Rather, some of us choose to never stop loving – and those choices create never ending loves.

Further, to anyone who has never found a “love of their life” and has given up trying, I’d ask them to consider this:

If I’d never found a great love, I would have never stopped searching and working toward it every day of my life.

My solution somewhat begs the question: But if you’ve stopped looking for a great love – that decision, to be a person who has given up looking for a great love, may be a reason you’ve never “found” one – or it may be a contributing consideration why love has not endured with you.

People who are in great love relationships may be the same people who, if they had not yet found a great love, would have never stopped working and trying for a great love relationship every day until they found one – working first to be a person with the time, priorities, and skills to be a part of a great love relationship, and also relentlessly looking for others willing and wanting to do the every-single-day work to create and maintain a great love. 3 years ago
