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.

wake up earlier (read all 2 entries…)

I am the biggest sleep lover ever.
When I’m sad – I sleep.
When I’m happy – I sleep.
When I’m energetic – I sleep.
When I’m tired – I sleep.
I sleep at school.
I sleep at home.
I sleep at my friend’s house.
I can sleep for 18 hours non-stop. At first I thought that it’s because of my anemia, but now when I am cured I really pissed off because of this habit.
I really love mornings, it’s the best part of the day, but usually I oversleep them…
Today I decided to wake up early (earlier than I used to) at 8am.
I heard my alarm clock, opened my eyes but never got up.
I did wake up at 9 o’ clock, but my goal was 8 o’ clock so I’m pretty sad.
It is even worse when I need to go to school or somewhere I just can’t open my eyes. Add it’s not like I have some disease or something it is because I am lazy!
Since I started exercising I decided to wake up earlier and go for a run, because in the evening I don’t have time left…

I shouldn’t punish myself right?
Let’s say I’m happy that now is 09:48am and I am up already!


jvtdc Getting off of my butt and getting something done!

Baby steps...

You need to start somewhere and then work on getting better. It is really hard to just jump in and do anything and be successful and keep it that way… Be happy with 9, keep it there for a few days, and then go for 8:45. Maybe that will help.
