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.

Yay me!

I started doing this again today.

Still Doing This

Although it was very difficult this morning, I managed to get out of bed… During the holiday I will be suspending this goal somewhat since I will be staying with my mom and she doesn’t get up until around noon, and I don’t want to disturb her. I will probably wake up earlier than that, but I need to rest too so I think I will allow myself to sleep later and sleep more, and then get back to doing this once I’m back here. Hopefully two weeks of slacking won’t mess up my sleep cycle too badly.

Done Today!

I woke up on time today and then I realized that I am awake too early! I don’t have anything to do until like, 11:00am. I can have Jordan time though, which is good.


Did really bad on this the last couple of days…

Going strong

But I haven’t made it to the weekend yet. We’ll see what happens tomorrow!

Day 2 & 3

Done for yesterday and today.

Day 1... again

Done for today! I might have needed two red bulls and 20oz of coffee to make it through my day, but dammit, I’m awake!

Did This Today!

Today is a super important day though… so… I guess that’s why. I need to wake up this early on mundane days too…
