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.

stop procrastinating

has GOT to be one of the worse things I do… it causes sooo many issues for me in so many areas of my life. It is like a disease that keeps me static… and immobile. Proceastination is my own self-sabatoge….

Here is what I need to do: daily to do lists that I check EVERYTHING off. I need to keep this list close by and add to it as I think of things. I need to hold myself accountable for my constant procrastination. The kicker is, is that nothing is as bad as I might imagine it to be in my own head once i have done it!

Wow! OK so I have been practicing this and today I was blessed with a survey “job” at 20 dollars an hour!! I sooo need it and I am sooo grateful!

Ok the day started out aweful… then i almost felt like that was the end of bad things…. lots of little things happened….

my mom gave me 20 bucks, i found an extra roll of toilet paper, i got a front row parking space after 6pm, my daughter went to bed without a problem, my house feels lovely and cool, my ex and i are talking about getting back together…... things are starting to feel better.
