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.

user16655 Struggling between doing more search or to actually get things done

stop procrastination
Part of the story

Looking back, it seems like I’m a bigger procrastinator now that I work from home then I was when I used to held a “real job.” I hated the “real job” though… not even the job but having to be at an office even the times that there was NOTHING TO DO. Back then I see that I had little to no dreams or real aspirations in life. I’m trying to find some sort of resources that I can use.

Some of my peers have recommended project management software, mind maps, or to simply jot down notes on a piece of paper. This has helped me in getting a better picture of how to develop what I’m trying to do. However, I keep on putting things for “later.” how can I shake myself to actually get things done?


isthisfate lynyrd skynyrd - simple man


So how’s this going? The project idea sounds like somthing I woukd suggest and try and do myself during down time at my work.

When I set my heart and mind I achieve allot but sometimes life changing things arnt the only decisions to be made!

I work as a firefighter and do things that need doing then and there in the workplace and when on a job…...........but I am a prime candidate for this goal often outside of work the small things can pile up! Ha!

I even frustrate my self at times! It’s so dumb!
