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.

stop procrastinating
A question about this goal: Is there any way to actually stop doing this? It becomes a habit, doesn't it, and it's hard to break? December 11th, 2009 08:36

Niel is doing whatever it takes ...

The underlying thing about procrastination is always a fear or an expected discomfort. Examine the procrastination to discover the fear, learn to avoid, handle or face the fear, and the procrastination can be overcome.

It will take more than 20 days, I can assure you of that.

Agree! Fear of discomfort is what stops us from acting. It takes quite a while to overcome this fear of leaving our comfort zones but ultimately, it’s a thrilling and fulfilling experience. One becomes fearless in the sense that you’re no longer afraid of facing the fear that stops you from growing.
Definitely worth all efforts!
