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.

do it



stay awake for three days straight
Untitled

Definitely worth doing! I stayed awake for 4 days straight before getting a 4 hour nap. Did it to write a report. I took loadsa coffee on during night to stay alert. You feel like crap during second day, nausea,boby aches but after that, you feel like you are alive, i.e like you are not missing anything in life.i’m definitely doing this again. heard the world record is 11 days and by then the guy saw signposts as people maybe i can beat that…



learn sign language (read all 2 entries…)
18 0ct

The next day i went out with the sign language society and i met some deaf people they had invited. I signed from 2130 till 0330 none stop!!! it was great fun and i find them to be lively, friendly and intriging. they all meet at the same bar every thursday and I’m definitely going. hopefully i will learn faster this way.
