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.

sleep 8 hours a day, from 11pm to 7am (read all 7 entries…)
I'm getting real bad at this

Actually, what I was fearing to happen is starting to happen. I feel like I need less sleep than I did. But then again, I can’t say I’m feeling that good either. I think I’m just getting used to the lack of sleep somehow, as if my body found a way to compensate.

I often go to sleep at like 3-4-5 and even 6 am and go to work the next day, fortunately at around 10 or 11am since I can arrange my schedule however I want. Perhaps this is part of the problem as I have no real incentive to modify my habits. At the same time I think I’m so bad at controlling my sleeping habits that I’d just either be late at work often or worse just call in sick… That’s my worst unachieved goal yet, fortunately other things are getting together.

I’ve found doing exercice on a regular basis really helps me though, I tend to be more regular at everything (wink wink lol).

Oh well, I’m not giving up!



I want to:
