Well folks, it’s been fun, but I’ve decided to close up To-Done. It’s not so much that I don’t have time for it anymore, it’s just that I don’t have a whole lot more to say on a regular basis. Maybe I’ll re-open it down the road, but for now I’ll feel much better if I just put it to rest. In the meantime be sure and check my weekly column at Lifehacker!

Thanks for reading and joining in on the various discussions we’ve had. It’s been great fun while it lasted and I hope I helped some of y’all with your work/life balance.

  1. Thanks for all the advice… sad to see To-Done go.

  2. Kory Twaites says:

    It’s sad to see you go. We’ll miss all the good articles and advice.

  3. Bruno says:

    Sad to see if go, it’s a beautifully designed website with great advice. Did you consider offering for adoption? Or perhaps if the topic was not so limited?

    Thank you for all the advice.

  4. Keith says:

    Bruno — I did think of that. But in the end it’s my site and I wasn’t too comfortable to keep someone else tied to it. Think of it as a book. You can go back and read it whenever you want. Much of what’s in here is pretty timeless.

  5. been a pleasure to read. maybe you could make the occasional return?

  6. Best of luck to wherever life takes you from here – it’s been nice reading your material! :)

  7. Jeff W. says:

    Now I can actually get some work done! :) Thanks for the postings! See you on Lifehacker.

  8. Dale Cruse says:

    Anyway, I did enjoy a lot your blog for months!
    Thanks a lot,

  12. Kerry Woo says:

    Keith, you did a fanstastic job – when I was blogging about visiting 100 blogs in 100 days series, I’m glad you made the list at # 40 at http://www.wonderdawg777.blogspot.com/.

    Look forward to your contributions at LifeHacker!

    Take care and I wish you the best – now git er done !

  13. Crazoo says:

    Ahh..don’t close it up!

    I’m sure you will have things to say, even if it’s just once a month.

    Well good luck with everything!

  14. Charles Follymacher says:

    Thanks very much for creating this site, Keith. It’s been a great help. May your archives live forever.

  15. What a bummer!

    I really like this site and the articles – I’ll keep the feed, in hope for new contributions!

  16. Thanks for the great blog. Good luck!

  17. OK says:

    Thank you so much for your brilliant articles!

  18. I had to shut down a blog recently for the same reason of not being able to give it focus. Yours is the right decision.

    Enjoyed it while it was going – one of my earlier blog subscriptions!


  19. Geoff says:

    Sad to see the site go, as I only became acquainted with it relatively recently. Are you going to leave the site up for archival viewing? Or take it down completely?

  20. zx says:

    it’s about what your write and not how much you write:) your site is very unique, so please reconsider:)

  21. Erin says:

    Thanks for the memories. I’ll be following the lifehacker notes.

  22. Thank you so much for helping us improve.

    Please consider leaving the site open so you can post any time it comes to mind. The hassle that comes with re-opening a site might hold you back from posting valuable entries again.

    Good luck with your Lifehacker column, I’ll be following it as well.

  23. Wow Wow! What happened!
    Man, this was an awesome blog to stop by for some tips. Anyway, I enjoyed the time I spent here like everyone else.

    Thank you for helping us to improve our lives sharing tips, and I will read you at LifeHacker!

    Best of lucks!

  31. Milo Riano says:

    Oh my! I am a late bloomer and just started reading your blogs a month ago. Pretty sad it has closed already. Tell us its your April fools chip-in.

  32. Mignon says:

    How awful is this? I just found Go-Done today! And it’s OVER. So a question. Will the site still be available so I can read the archives? I do hope so. What I”ve read so far speaks to my own particular soul.

  33. Edward says:

    *sheds tear*

    It is really sad to see this place go, I would consider myself a pretty frequent visitor to this site and have found many of the articles posted here very helpful. I really hope that you do some day reopen the site and start posting again. But, then again, ya gotta know when to hold em’ and when to fold em’.

    Good Luck to ya guys. And I will surely be reading your other column!

  34. Paul says:

    Thanks for the posts. Good luck with everything.

  36. Aadarsh says:

    thanks for your unselfish posts – much appreciated!

  38. Sam says:

    Hey buddy,
    I arrived on this site thru del.icio.us and it has been extremely interesting reading your articles ! You are spot on in your attitude. It is a pitty that you are stopping this blog I was starting to really enjoy it ! Nevertheless, best of luck for your future projects,


  39. Dayle Ann says:

    Over the years, you’ve helped me keep my dream of my own home-based business alive– and I’ve learned a lot from reading your site. Ironic that just as I am stepping out, you are stepping back. That’s fine, it is part of the process of living our lives for ourselves. I’m glad I am getting a chance to say thanks for all your sharing. It would have felt empty had I waited… and found you just gone! See you over there.

  40. m3nt0r says:

    Do you leave the page online so we are all able to use it as reference ?

  41. Just come across your site… I hope you decide to ressurrect it soon

  42. Mich says:

    I just stumbled on your site and was amazed at how nice your articles were. I hope you’re not really closing this down.

  43. Elle says:

    Hope you’ll keep this site up for awhile. Lifehacker is one of my favorite sites.

    But I’d just like to know, how did you do it? That is, have a popular blog that was only a year old? My blog is approaching two years and I have no readers. Any advice?

  44. Darren Lee says:

    This is a great site about motivation… it’s sad thing it is over… my tribute to the author and all the best in everything he do….
