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.

week 3

When school ended back in May I was such a morning person. It took me almost six weeks to be able to sleep past 8 am. But once I did, oh boy, it was all over. But school started two weeks ago and I have been getting up every week day before 7 and this morning I was naturally up & ready to go at 8. So I am getting back into the swing of things but I am by no means used to this new schedule yet. When the alarm when off Thursday I felt like I was wearing a lead bodysuit.


okay so I am working on this… I set my alarm & woke up at 6 this morning when my husband had to get up for work, but other than to walk the dog & grab my laptop, I have not gotten out of bed yet. I am making myself get out of bed at 8 b/c I don’t have to be at work until 10. I like the leisurely pace of this morning.

ntg has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
