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.

brightthunderA Tale of Two Hearts:)

I’ve been reading through the posts about Nick’s illness, and Jessy’s incredible love and care. What an inspiration:) What a long journey too. Many beautiful moments, and many disappointments. But more then anything, this is a tribute to true love.
Thank you Jessy for sharing this Tale of Two Hearts with the world, and thank you for allowing us to be part of the journey.
May the progress continue. 5 years ago

kchellersThink About Others Before Yourself!

It’s funny how I came on this website with a selfish goal to get an Xbox 360, then came across your goal! I want you to know that you have my prayers and please continue to stay strong for your husband..I would do the same for mine! 7 years ago

I’m so happy to hear that Nick continues to recover. I just joined 43things tonight and stumbled upon this goal as if by accident. Please know that you are both in my prayers. Stay Positive! God Bless You 8 years ago

thatgirlsabstill sending you and your hubby good thoughts

I know it’s an everyday thing you’re dealing with. I’m still thinking about you, your husband, and your family and hoping for a full recovery for Nick! 8 years ago

thatgirlsabjust read about your situation

Not sure how I missed it this whole time. I saw the word “aphasia” and instantly wanted to learn more. I’m so sorry you’re going through such a rough time, but it sounds like your husband has made so much progress!! Six years ago, I spent months in ICU, inpatient at the hospital, and at outpatient rehab with my mom after she had brain surgery and was left with a pretty bad brain injury. She was totally paralyzed on her right side and could not even make a sound initially. After lots and lots of therapy, she now walks and is able to speak, although she too is aphasiac.

After reading your entries, I am so glad to see that your husband has come so far, but I know he still has a long road of recovery ahead of him. I will definitely be sending you and your family lots of positive thoughts. I’m a big believer in the power of positive thinking, so I will do whatever I can to help! 8 years ago



Haven’t heard anything in awhile. Hope you and Nick are still doing good! 8 years ago

AnnieDeeThe healing thoughts and prayers will continue

Jessy, I won’t stop until Nick is 100% recovered. You are a wonderful, amazing, strong woman and Nick is very fortunate to have you in his corner. Loving vibes go out to both of you every day. 8 years ago

You are still in my prayers and every time I log on, I’ll send another one. Be strong! 8 years ago

ana ellieworthHi Jess'

Wanted to let you know, I’ve been thinking about you and your husband.

It’s not an easy time for you.

If you need to burst out with angst over in the “be healthier” team, go for it. You have multiple teams of people who wish to help and support you.

My words are genuine. I truly am concerned about you. Though I may not respond immediately, I eventually do. And there is always someone who will be more prompt. 8 years ago

RoadWarriorXThanks for the update...

It’s good to hear that everything is looking for the best! You and your husband will be in my prayers! I hope for the best! 8 years ago

AnnieDeeContinue to pray for Jessy and Nick

There have been hopeful signs of recovery, but Nick remains in a coma. Jessy has been at his side since he suffered a brain aneurysm on December 10. Please keep sending them love, prayers, and positive thoughts. 8 years ago
