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.

sleep less

When I went through a period of depression I slept WAY too much and it has stayed with me!! Although I don’t let myself sleep during the day anymore – unless there’s a valid reason – I still find it almost impossible to wake up when I intended to.

The only helpful piece of advice I can give anyone is have someone else call you – someone that will argue with you about it until you actually get up. This works for me. :) Hopefully when I have done this enough it’ll become a habit.

drink more water (read all 3 entries…)
Woohoo day 1 complete

I drank 8 glasses of water today :) Yay me!

I find it easier to think about it as drinking a glass every two hours.. makes it seem less overwhelming. and when you think about it, your body probably does need that regular fluid input to keep it running optimally :)

Also automatically refilling your glass after you finish it helps.

drink more water (read all 3 entries…)
Been a while...

It’s been a whlie since I did anything with this one – although I do solidly drink a glass at breakfast and at dinner and no longer drink juice/soda..

But I was reading yet another article on the health benefits of drinking eight glasses and I figure it’s worth another try. sigh

I’m usually up between 7am and 11pm: 16 hours – so I guess it’s a glass every 2 hours for me.

Drinking 2nd glass now :)

See all entries ...
