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.

take it easy !!!!

After finishing university and starting a job I discovered I was often fatigued on Friday evening after five days commuting so I decided ASAP to cut it back to four days.
It has made life so much more relaxed, so much time for everything. If I have to take a day off halfway the week I can work Fridays so I don’t cut my holiday. When I am tired on Thursday evening there are still two weekend evenings to do things !
And I don’t miss the money. Yhe fifth day is in the highest tax bracket anyway. My experience is that when you work four days life is cheaper because I have more time and energy to cook instead of going out to eat; I have more time to find cheaper clothes and other things on Friday when the shops are quiet, I can book cheaper flights on Friday or Monday.


I want to:
