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.

sankirknot perfect..certainly better

For me, the first step to stop procrastinating is to feel good.. work out and get enough sleep. Second step was to do something I’ve been putting off, something that felt impossible… and complete it. Such a surprise.. it felt so good… I’ve been working on avoided things ever since and gotten much done. Procrastination is life-habit so I have to be aware that it’s my default.. I do know that feeling strong and good helps tremendously. 4 months ago

rikkilemomof3Life starts TODAY!

I need to stop getting in my own way!
Every day I have choices to make and things to accomplish and children to chase… and I have let things interrupt my goals, my dreams and my aspirations! Just because I have children doesn’t mean I am no longer a person! YES when you have kids you sacrifice a LOT for their safety, security, well being and to ensure they grow up productive members of society… BUT it does NOT mean you have to quit all of those things you have come to identify yourself with as a person!

(Unless they happen to be illegal or addictions… then I strongly suggest, on behalf of the human race itself, that you go get some intervention of some kind!)
I make hundreds of excuses a day as to why things aren’t going the way I planned! I say “meh that is life for ya” when things go wrong and I do menial tasks instead of working on things that I KNOW will help my life in general, like creating, or writing, or craigslisting the crap I KNOW I have just sitting in the garage!
Is it because this stuff is HARD or I ACTUALLY have something better to do? NO!! It is simply because I am afraid of doing something WRONG or being JUDGED or being told NO… And you know what? I have come to realize… that those are REALLY DUMB REASONS FOR NOT LIVING MY LIFE THE WAY I WANT TO! My procrastination may not really be hurting anyone… butit sure as hell isn’t helping anything either! 4 months ago
