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.

Can't find the time...

Life is going sooo fast. I can’t seem to fit me in the schedule.

I agree. I feel the same

fit you both into your schedules even for just 2 minutes of quiet and sanity all to you per day….. you are so SO worth it, and it’s the only way to be there for other people.

please take care of you, even if has to be for 30 seconds and no more. do what you can so that you know you matter. It’s just so important in so so many ways.

I know how crazy life can get though and how hard this can be to do. but you matter, friend, you really honestly do. :)

I needed to hear that.

You'll have to take the time for yourself

In my experience you’ll never find the time, but you will just have to take the time for yourself and skip other things. I know it’s hard, but are really all things you do more important than taking some time for yourself?

When I’ve been too busy for longer time in the past, I always got unhappy and inefficient.
