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.

Getting to bed on time.

I am getting up on time most days, but having trouble getting to bed on time. Assuming I want to get (at least) 7 hours sleep, I would have to go to bed between 8-9pm, depending on the day. THAT IS HARD TO DO.

The bane of my life

I’m still failing to finish my #1 goal. Nothing I do seem to help change it. :[ How am I going to keep a job if I can’t get up on time?

I'm back at this again..

I can never stick with it! I wish this was an easier goal..

Still trying!

I’ve woken up between 9/9:30am the past few days.. I just have to keep it up and try for an even earlier time! But there might be a speed bump again.. I’m trying to get a certain job and the hours are all over the place, mostly overnights! But gotta pay what’s due, right? D:

Slept in.

I woke up at 11:30am today. It’s hard to get out of bed when it’s FREEZING morning weather. God help me on fix this.. I don’t want live this way anymore.

Might work out... we'll see.

I went spent 1 week in CA, getting up between 6am-9am because I HAD TO to get where we were going on time. That went well, but I accidentally slept in when I got home! I can’t do that again. :[

Nooo my sleepz

I was getting up at 9am(goal is to be up around 6am-7am) every day for about 3 weeks, but then I caught a cold… It completely screwed up my sleep pattern. Now I’m back to my old habit.. here’s hoping I can get out of it again. I feel so much better when I’m on a strict sleep schedule.
