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.

TM Rule #29 Plan Your Day/Know the best time to do what

If I have to take care of several things in one day, all of it’s on my to do list or calendar, but none of it is due at a particular time, I’ll take out a scrap piece of paper and right down at what time I’ll do what. Sometimes when you do this you can save yourself some time by doing them in logical order. For example if I have to go to the library and the grocery store on the same day, I’ll make sure I hit the grocery store first, Since the dry cleaners is near the library, I’ll run these two errands together.

And when I have a report that is due at the end of the month, when do I get started on the next months report-at the very beginning of the month, so I’m no rushed as the due date approaches. Once I had 9 articles due all within 3 days of one another. I staggered the completion of each of them and I worked on them all each day taking them as far as I could. Then the next day I’d pick up the threads again.



I want to:
