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.

Develop a morning routine

8 cheers

I’ve developed a pretty solid, albeit brief morning routine. I think now I should start setting my alarm for slightly earlier each day to be able to have time for stretching and preparing for the day before work.


I’m doing pretty great at this, I think. Since I stopped snoozing for a half hour, I’ve had plenty of time to make breakfast and wake up fully before work.

I think I’m actually less tired later when I get up at my first alarm than I am when I snooze.

Who knew.


So far, I haven’t exactly developed a routine, but I have been consciously better about getting out of bed reasonably soon after my first alarm, and truly, that’s the hardest part of my morning, so I’m hoping it only gets easier.

I can stick to goals. I will stick to goals.

No more hitting snooze for a half hour then being rushed and nearly late every day.

I believe it’s time I relearn how to wake up and mean it.

Starting tomorrow (or maybe the next day… ha), I plan to begin each day by:
Hitting snooze no more than once
Doing at least a few minutes of yoga/stretching
Taking a vitamin
Eating breakfast
Writing a to-do list for the day

I want to:
