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.

I have a day off from work, so I am listening to the WHOLE audio book today. I will get this into my head somehow. 21 months ago


I’ve tried it, kinda do it. Need to focus on one goal only so putting this on hold until I get my ONE GOAL: house=back to ready. simple: spend 15 minutes each afternoon tidying up the house. that’s it. for a month. nothing else. 2 years ago

I just don’t understand how people do this. I try different things, but I alwasy have to try a new system, a better way, a differnt noteook ,etc. 2 years ago

simonewestphalFirst step

Last week I have bought the book of David Allen “Getting things done”. Now I plan to read the book in the next 10 days and put the techniques into my daily routine. 2 years ago

Back from the dead! I’ve recently started to implement this. With the birth of my second child, a promotion at work, and basically having met most of my medium-term goals, I’m looking for some longer goals. And I don’t think I’m quite going to get there unless I get myself organized.

I’ve started using todo.txt hosted on Mark’s machine with the corresponding app. I’ve started doing weekly reviews (two, one with Robin on Sunday nights and a work-related review on Friday afternoons). I also am working on capturing my projects list.

It’s HARD. I never realized productivity would have this much thinking and refactoring involved. And yet it doesn’t seem like I’ve gained much—but I’m sure in six months I’ll look back and realized I’ve gained control of my “stuff”. 2 years ago

tygabso far off the wagon I need to start over...

so, this has been a FAIL at home to date, but I will get it sorted out THIS YEAR. no. more. excuses. 2 years ago

StephenMarch Bootcamp boost to GTD

Adding the “March Bootcamp 2012: On the Move!” goal to my 43things has given me my first opportunity to combine other goals I have on 43things. I plan to use it as a catalyst for making progress on major goals I have and I already have had a very good start.

Needed to update here because this is my supervising goal for my “get things done” goals! 2 years ago
