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.

Never be treated like shit again

kcruthmcWhy I give up

How other people behave is outside of my control. I have decided to replace this goal with “Be more selective about who I associate with” I think that will be more constructive. 7 years ago

Squirrel HunterThings happen for a reason...

But all that matters is if I learn from situations…do something about it…improve myself and be a better person.

There have been many series of events that have happened in my life the last couple of weeks to really make me think and analyze my life. I want better for myself than what I’ve been doing. I want my kids to have the absolute best life I can give them. I missed my daughter’s first day of Jr. High because I chose to spend it with someone that didn’t care about me or my girls. Never again will I do that. Do you think 5 years from now she’s going to remember that stupid shirt I bought her while I was away…or the fact that I was gone her first day of school when all she wanted was for me to be there??

I never know when something will happen to me, my girls or my family. I want to live each day trying to make my girls proud. Life is too short to be treated like crap. I don’t deserve that. My girls don’t deserve their mom being treated like that. There have been some people recently that have lost their life. I don’ know what tomorrow will bring.

I have a wonderful family and great friends. I don’t have to live this life alone. I don’t always have to be that strong. My girls deserve a mom that is happy, healthy and provides for them. A mom that is always there for them.

I am very happy. I have a great life…wonderful girls…a loving, fun family and great friends. What more do I need??
