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.

Keep going on

Just I keep going on waking up early. Now I wake up around 7:15-7:45 and totally it’s acceptable for me. At first, I was going to set my goal earlier, but I stopped judge myself just whether I wake up early or late.
Actually, even I woke up earlier, I spent those beautiful morning hours just surfing around with my computer. It’s useless. It’s better to sleep more.
So I set my goal not so early. Now I am satisfied with my achievement.

Over 1 month, I have woken up around 7:30. This is good.
Now my new plan is setting the alarm 5 min earlier. So starting from today, 7:25. When I achieve this goal, I will set it 7:20.

Well, today? I woke up earlier than 7:25….

Last night, I’ve updated my Android. Then, all the settings were reset. I put the alarm this morning, but the sound volume was too low because of the reset. ouch!

I woke up early, really.

No… no… no…. woke up at 8:45. And didn’t do morning meditation.

I use my mobile as a morning alarm. This morning, the battery ran out. But I woke up 7:48. Well done.

While my vacations, I was terrible late riser….sometimes with hungover…
Today, 7:30. I try to keep 7 hours sleep.

July 11

5:30. Why? Just I couldn’t keep myself in bed.

Aug 10

7:00. Yay! And I sent a Happy belated birthday message to my friend.

July 9

Finally, at 7am! Yay!
But dangerous days are coming… We go to Spain next week. Late lunch, late dinner, being up to late…. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
