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.

get enough sleep (read all 77 entries…)
As always

after a couple of days off, the start of my nightly sleep has shifted into the late night (or early morning…). Apparently my body would prefer a rhythm like that.

However since I have to get up early for work again tomorrow, I’ll try to go to bed at a more “normal” time. I hope I can fall asleep, otherwise tomorrow will be tough.


ugogrl thankful for the cheers =0)

best wishes for a

restful sleep & productive workday

I’ve can relate however as to how difficult it can be
to adjust your natural circadian rhythm to fit “standard” work hours

if I had my way I’d stay up until 12pm & get up at 8am this feels the best to me but I’ve always had go to bed earlier & wake earlier in order to get to work on time


Yeah, it’s tough at times trying to fit in with the world… So glad for the times when I don’t have to !
