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.

Take Hawaiian Hula lessons

I fell in love with Hawaii. The culture is so beautiful, the dancing is so inspiring.

Developing and practicing a restful, and consistent sleep pattern.

Every night, I essentially procrastinate to sleep. Whether it’s watching a t.v. show I don’t really care for, or senselessly wikipedia-ing, I distract myself, even though I may be thinking I am just unwinding. I think I am just buying some time, some personal mindless time, because I devote a good amount of it to work.
In the morning, I wake up several times. My hand has been trained to hit the snooze button the second my alarm sounds off in my dreams.
On my days off, I’m so worn, I sleep in. Later on, I’ll take an extended nap. It’s great to have days like these, except it happens too often.
I am giving myself a bedtime. My alarm will be a song I like that can gently introduce me to the day. This way, I’ll look forward to waking up. I will also tell myself at night at least one thing to look forward to the next day, so a restful sleep will hold more value.


I want to:
