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.

Hm... add an hour buffer

I’m still swamped with things to do, but I am starting to figure out that scheduling an hour buffer between appointments and being able to take something out of my schedule makes me less stressed.

Also, instead of just having a list of things to do, I am scheduling by the hour and also by the location. For example, when running errands, I plan my appointments according to where things are located, so that I can save gas as well as time.

this problem leads to more problems....

because of this problem of lack of time management, i can’t prioritize… i am late to EVERYTHING, i end up staying up late almost every night, and i have no energy for anything, meaning i have no energy to spend quality time with my son or boyfriend, and i’m too tired to see friends. makes me feel more down, and i just dont function right at all. at work i’m too tired to care or i just dont have the energy to do my best. lol.. its really a downhill spiral. i must learn to say NO when talking too long on the phone, visiting my boyfriend or friends, and when getting on the evil internet. =) also, lack of sleep causes one to get sick and gain weight… hehehhe..

oddly enough.. i’m rarely late on paying bills or meeting deadlines when it comes to assignments… who knows…
