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 hate feeling like this.

I feel like my head is spinning and I don’t know what to do.

If I get things done as and when they need to be done -

I feel so much better. Having things hanging around me, waiting to be done only adds to my anxiety. At the moment, I’m feeling that mental clutter seeping back into my life because my exams for my A Levels are only about 45 days away and there has been very limited progress. I’ve been so busy at work that I have simply not had the time, but I HAVE to make time.

I need to get everything finished by April 30th: Several read throughs, note taking, flash cards, and some past exam papers. The remaining papers I’ll do in May to keep things fresh. Oh man. This is going to be tough.

Ever had that feeling -

That there is just so much going on, so many things to take care of, and so many things to worry about that crazy anxiety starts to set in?

How do you deal with it?
