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.

get up at 5 o'clock and form a habbit


Entries from everyone

zhoumore than a month

I have continued this goal for more than a month, but still found that I haven’t formed a habbit, so I need more days, then I can get up at 5 am without the clock alarm. 3 years ago

zhoucontinued 14 days

for some moment,when the alarm clock rings, I didn’t want to open my eyes,but soon i get up quickly, and open the computer, follow it to do yoga.Now 14days has passed, I didn’t stop one day, I will calculate how many days do I need to form a habbit. Maybe I know I was not a strong-minded person, I don’t want to give up for just only one morning, if I gave up for one day, i will give up more days. 3 years ago

zhoudoing yoga after I get up every morning

This is a good season for practise getting up early and keeping this habbit, since I almost stop it las month when I was a little busy,and I found my status were not very healthy. Now I think as long as I keep doing this for more than one or two months, then I couldn’t miss it for one day. Summer is coming, but not that hot, especailly early in the morning, the moment is quiet, birds are singing, with some cool wind, fresh air, yoga seems to be one of my part. 3 years ago

zhouI have continued 6 days

This is a good chance for me to strengthen my willpower, I was not the one of great willpower, I often let myself have a rest, I have wasted a lot of time on sleeping, now I need to have a change and spend more time on reading or something meaningful, I need more time, this is a good chance for me to practice for shorter sleeping and form a better willpower inside myself. 3 years ago
