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.

If I can continue doing this for EVERYDAY next week – i will mark this goal off!


I think I may have cracked it


We have had a break through ppl! Last night I put my alarm outside my door (and turned it up REALLY loud) when it went off I tramped right across to get it and then I was pretty much in the bathroom, so i just got in the shower – by the time i finished I was awake and kicking, a whole hour earlier then I normally get up after hitting the snooze button ten times! Im going to keep doing this and hopefully will train myself to the point where I dont have to (my boyfriend is NOT a fan of this new technique) but is the best so far!


Failing epically – alarm went off at 6.30 – out of bed at 8AM!!!!

Tomrrow I am setting it on the other side of the room, no more snooze button!!


Got up successfully at 6 again today, breakfast meeting, im good wen I know I have a reason, so I think thinking of an important reason before bed helps


Yesterday I got up up wen my alarm clock went off… 6!


Did goooooood today – alarm at 7.20 – out of bed at 7.30 – even tho I only had 5 hours sleep – its coz I knew I had to get up or I wouldnt have time to wash my hair – i think going to sleep with a reason to get up helps me


doing really badly at this, alarm goes at 7.20 – on average i get up at 8! ek!


Today (was sat) so i set my alarm from 9.30 (yay sleep in!) I work up at 7.29, wide awake, a minute before my alarm would normally go off, i promptly went back to sleep and relished my two hours BUT it proved I know when I should get up and its not as hard as I make it!


Getting there! Goal is to get up on time EVERY DAY THIS WEEK
