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.

Thu 2/22 – 8:06 am – was actually 20 minutes early but i decided to stop at coffee shop and chit chat with sis and made my damn self late…
Fri 2/23 – 8:01 am – damn it! so close…

So it looks like this wasn’t that good of a week. Was only on time one day. But the upside is I’m not as late as I use to be…under 10 minutes. Hopefully next week will be a better week.

Tuesday 2/13: early!! 7:55 am (wow 2x!)

Okay so I was on time 3/5 days this week and early each time. yeah! I haven’t been early since I first started. One day was late because the damn blizzard which I excuse my self for and then only 3 minutes late yesterday. Getting better but still not where I want to be yet. Monday’s a holiday so I’ll be off. (Yay!) So I’ll start again Tuesday.

week of 2/5 - 2/9

8:10 ish

Man I keep getting worse and worse as I “work” on this goal. My boss even said something today like “be on time tomorrow shawna…” I’ve got to make to work on time tomorrow. 0/3


Ugh. Later than yesterday…I even set my clothes out the night before. but i was so tired this morning stayed up way too late… 0/2


I hated getting up today – for some reason it felt like a Monday. Tried to make it to work on time. Only 3 minutes late. Definitely not bad but I really would like to be on time and then when that is mastered I’d like to be 5 minutes early. So I can settle in and stuff…but this is going to be hard because I am SOOOO not a morning person….

so for now i’m 0/1
