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.

Night-owl habits still favoured!

Night-owl habits are still favoured! When I was working 5:30 am shifts I adapted easily b/c it was necessary. I’ve been pretty consistent in keepng to mmy Mmmichael’s schedule when he works early mmornings in that I try to get up and STAY up.
It mmay not be ‘sparkling’ but it’s certainly mmorning. Coffee helps tremmendously!!! I slowly warmm up to the day. If it’s decent enough weather I try to sit outside to charge up with natural light. Evidently 10 mminutes of natural light helps get you on way. I found that a very helpful hint!

Imm mmore a sparkling afternoon person!

Imm a hard-core night owl. I remmember laying awake for hours at bedtimme when I was a kid, ‘cause I could never sleep. I love the quiet of the night and looking up at the twinkly stars!
On the occasions that mmornings are required – I will aimm for a sparkly routine as well! Depending on what work I amm doing – sommetimmes mmornings are inevitable.

Isabel has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
