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 (read all 4 entries…)

I’ve been doing a terrible job at not procrastinating. This week was week 4 out of 10 and things aren’t too pressing yet so I’m feeling relaxed(if not lazy). I didn’t complete a paper for my senior seminar class, I didn’t make a cardboard maquette for welding(which turned out wasn’t due) and I forgot to print out a paper for business practices.

I was feeling rather stressed Tuesday. It’s been a while since I’ve had to write papers for more than one class and, as my boyfriend pointed out, I’m procrastinating on stuff I used to procrastinate on before. Up til now I’ve been doing art classes and all the stuff I do is sculpture or painting(stuff I enjoy); no papers to write really. I had forgotten what it’s like to really procrastinate. The stress is awful.

I will keep my to do lists full and up to date so that I can check off as I complete. Checking things off is so satisfying, don’t know why I avoid doing my homework and miss out on checking stuff off…



I want to:
