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.

mlarmalade still waiting on grades

stop procrastinating (read all 20 entries…)

So, tomorrow is the due date for a rather large research paper. Apparently, when the paper was assigned I felt like being a complete troll, so I changed the due date on all of my information to today, and wrote it in block letters on my calender.
And I totally forgot I did it. I honestly thought that today was the due date, so last night when I got home from a social outing, I went to town finishing up the final revisions on the paper, and got to bed by 11. When I showed up to class everyone was like “Wow, you’re really disciplined for getting done a day early” and I was like “WHAAAAAAAT??”
I guess it worked, because I got the chance to fix all of my exhaustion-induced typos and formatting errors. Clean copy, being turned in tomorrow. I’m not sure that I could pull it off again, I guess the key is forgetting that you’ve done it, and I’m just too proud of myself now to do that. It was pretty crazy though. xD


mlarmalade has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
