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.

become an early riser (read all 5 entries…)
11AM: Hmmm

I’m just all over the place, aren’t I? I chose to set my alarm for 6AM, it went off at 6AM.. I turned it off and woke up at 11AM. It’s definitely an improvement compared to when I first began this goal, hopefully I’ll be a 6AM wake-up master soon!

Edit: I think I just realised why I failed to stay awake this morning (Apart from the fact I felt dreadfully tired) – I didn’t turn on my computer when I woke up, only my light.

I’d better remember to turn the computer on first thing tomorrow!

become an early riser (read all 5 entries…)

Woke up randomly at 5:18AM, mustered the energy to get out of bed – turned on the light and computer, drank a glass of water. Been up since.

If I can stay awake throughout the day, 5:20 might just be my new wake up time. Guess I’ll see! :)

make a linux distribution
One day...

I’ll make a Linux distribution for learning purposes, and maybe even for fun too…

See all entries ...
