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.

Day 4

Another day of being on time. Feel Great. Even if I’m dead tired, I tried so hard not to be late.

Day 3

18 more days to go! Everyone says it takes 21 days to establish a habit, I’m counting the days. I’ve been going and leaving work on time for 3 days now. It feels so good to be on time. Besides work, I’ve been meeting people on time for social events as well. I am determined to change this ugly habit for good. Absolutely hate the reputation I got. I’m really blowing my friends away when I actually meet them on time. LOL

Damn It!

This thing is so freaking hard! I’m always late for everything. I hate the reputation I got, I just want to prove my friends that I can actually be on time. I hate the stress associating with this. Urgg it’s such a hard habit to break!

2 days

woo hoo…2 days straight w/o being late. Actually made it to swimming class at 8 am and went to the dentist on time today. Sounds so silly but my tardiness has become a habit that is very hard to break.


I actually made to work right on time today. I have to keep doing it in order to make it a habit. I have such a bad reputation for being late and I hate it.
