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.

Found this on a blog I check regularly – am going to go through the list, as they suggest, and see if it helps clarify my thinking.

Creativity, ideas, the big picture

I can’t do the small stuff until the big picture makes sense. 4 years ago


kaydee25One thing at a time

Breaking down seemingly huge problems into achievable goals, and then just getting one of those done. This seems to get me over the bump in the road that can stop me in my tracks too often. On days off I need to get one thing done when I first get up, not just sit bewildered and vaguely guilty all day about what I should be doing.

Must also try to scale down the perfectionism in me. The temptation not to do something for fear of getting it wrong is unhelpful. 5 years ago
