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.

I am procrastinating cleaning the kitchen, making dinner, reading my assignments and completing them.
I am procrastinating..
starting an ebay business (i’ve had this dream for 6 months now. It’s supposed to be easy) and creating an online portfolio for my graphic design work. All this crap is standing in the way of my success.
OK I am going to read the chapters NOW. then I will go on the internet and look at something I want to research but I will wait. That will be my reward. Then I will clean the kitchen and make dinner. My reward will be watching american idol. then I must finish my assignment.
ready…. go!
