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.

take better care of myself (read all 25 entries…)

Often I will come home and fall asleep around 5:00p for a few hours, get up, and then not be sleepy when “bedtime” rolls around at 10:30p or so. But I really can’t tell if napping is messing with my sleep schedule, or if my body clock is just seriously honked up….because I frequently forego the nap, and getting to sleep at bedtime isn’t any easier.

It doesn’t help that most nights the Man doesn’t come to bed with me. But that’s a whole other kettle of fish.

Does anyone know anything about melatonin supplements? Do they work? Are they habit-forming? I just want to stop feeling like I got hit by a bus when I wake up in the morning.

I wish I was one of those people who knock out at a moment’s notice, and can sleep anywhere. My dad is one of those. I sort of envy him.

Annnnnnd I should probably stop stimulating my brain with blue light and technology earlier than I do. But 43T doesn’t give me my cheers till late at night!
