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.

Do 10 nagging tasks a week, no matter how small, until I feel caught up (read all 162 entries…)

Laundry. Laundry has been overdue for an entire week. I was digging deep in that underwear drawer, let me tell you. :)

Like Spatz, I seem to be a little behind this week. Normally I start the new week on Sunday, but I’m still a couple of nagging tasks behind… Unless I find some fast ones, I will try to extend the week until tomorrow and see if I can’t get ten done by the end of the day.

I used to do bootcamps

but eventually I found being part of the group wasn’t motivating me any more and I found it more useful having my own, more specific lists. I do have lists that overlap goal to goal, and I’ve had goals with multiple lists. At times, I’ve found it motivating, and at other times overwhelming. I guess you don’t know till you try. :)


and I’ve been doing bootcamps for a few months now. Might be time to step up the intensity! Thanks for your input :)
