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.

Need to figure out an easy way to stop altogether – will ponder this one …

Fell off wagon

Oops need to clamber back on. And stop buying it in the first place.

No vodka

No vodka since last thurs and gave slept better and woken up fresher each morning since. Need to stay off it for good.

Sleeping better

Have slept every night since breaking up for summer – that says it all – time to change jobs …

No alcohol = sleep. Result!

Have slept every single night since binning the alcohol. Go figure.

Bloody cough

Cough kept me awAke most of last night. When alarm went off I was in such a lovely sleep. Looking fwd to bedtime tonight

Doing well

Slept well last night. Even went to loo at 3 then went back to sleep. Hypnosis working and thinking positive instead of worrying too.

Up all night again

Need to sort out my dreadful sleep patterns. Slept less than 3 hours last night. Wake up unable to get back to sleep. Hopefully my other life changes will sort this out. Will carry on with hypnosis audio stuff and try and maintain a bedtime routine.
