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.

August Bootcamp 2011: Building Routines (read all 26 entries…)
How is everyone doing with their routines?

I’ve not been doing so well. I was doing great for a while but i’m in a non productive rut.

I was reading my goal pyramid from last year (you write your goals for the week, month, year and 5 years) I have accomplished absolutly none of them this year except loosing weight but I was sick and had no choice! This year is going to be about taking better action towards the goals that really matter to me and less about the small superficial things that don’t add up to productivity.

so for the rest of the month, i will work on building the routines that are going to get me where I need to be and weeding out the routines that are already in my life and that are negative.
