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.

Adrienne HubbardGoal for this week.

Try waking up before 6:15 everyday? I’d like to try to do this.
I am notoriously bad at waking up in the morning.
For the rest of this school week, I am going to wake up before 6:15.
YES. 3 years ago

thesevhere we go

goal re-activated! my new job starts earlier and my fiance toni is on the same schedule, so now more than ever it behooves me to make this part of my life. toni loves sleeping in as well, so it can be difficult to overcome the warm bed mentality. this blog post is getting me in the right mind set, though: 3 years ago


I just can’t do it . I woke up at 11 today , like yesterday and the day before. 4 years ago


so i think this is just gonna have to go hand in hand with getting a new job. ain’t gonna happen on its own. 5 years ago


i woke up right around noon today, but i still haven’t done shit. watched heroes and the daily show, made some food, still lookin for shit to do despite the fact that i made this god damn list a week ago. bah. 5 years ago

thesevthis is a problem

i’m just getting worse and worse. every day off i get i’m sleepin’ in til after noon, sometimes like 3 or 4. it’s eating into my productivity time, for real. toni gets home from work round 5 or 6, and after that i just wanna come up with some fun shit for us to do, rather than get down to business. maybe posting this here will make me feel accountable, like, i wanna cross that off, so i gotta wake up. 5 years ago

squashplayer007Up early

Got out of bed at 6 am today 6 years ago

squashplayer007Resisted temptation to cancel game and go back to sleep

Woke up at 9 today even though I stayed up until 4:30 am last night. Was tempted to text Doug and cancel my game. I’m glad I didn’t do that. Definitely very helpful to have a fixed game. Takes time to set up games, but it is definitely worth it. Its now 3:45. I haven’t slept since coming back. I’m going to take a nap for a couple of hours in about 20 minutes. 6 years ago

squashplayer007Don't stay up too late

Try not to stay up past 1 am. Much easier to wake up by 8 if I don’t stay up until 2. 6 years ago
