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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has overtaken half of my life, and while I’ve tried different things to keep busy and feel better, my health hasn’t. I’m sick of being sick and worthless to people. 4 years ago

emstratHow i did it

Well forstarters there’s good and bad to lying in bed all day, first of all your back begins to hurt and it starts to get uncomfortable. But other then that its good :)

I have done this 4 times, and i am doing right now.

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyBed Rest

I was on bed rest for many weeks with Sean when I was pregnant with him. I got bed sores and hated being in bed, as I loved being active. However, what made it worth it was that it gave my son a chance to live, life. He is so totally worth it. 6 years ago

Eric OlsenSleeping is Not Worth It

There is too much to do during the day to spend it in bed. Life is for living, not for laying around. Staying in bed all day isn’t worth it; you could be doing something new or something that you enjoy.

The more you sleep, the more you feel like sleeping and the less you want to go out. I don’t think that’s any way to live. 6 years ago


Totally worth doing!! Especially if it is raining or you have a good book to read or both! 6 years ago
