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.

Free spirit, place of peaceIt'd be easier

if I could just fall asleep.

(so much harder to sleep when at school) 6 years ago

krod1My Sleeping is to be envied...

I usually go to bed around 10pm and wake up at 6am for work. I have a memory foam bed which was the best $2k I have ever spent. On weekends I can sleep up to 12 hours-if I want. My life schedule is such that I can sleep pretty much whenever I want (you know after work/weekends) and I love that. I see so many people run ragged, and they wonder why they look old?! There is a reason people think my husband and I look at least 5 years younger than we actually are…ahhh sleep. Gotta love it-and I appreciate that I get so much of it! 6 years ago

i have difficulty falling asleep sometimes.

gotta find a way to slow myself down when night falls… 6 years ago

morrigirlNot Quite 8

Well, I haven’t quite worked my way up to getting eight hours of sleep every week night, but I have managed to get myself in the habit of getting into bed and turning out the light one hour earlier then I used to. This one little tweak translates into about six hours of sleep every night as oppose to four or five. A VAST improvement. 6 years ago


At least for all of this school semester. 6 years ago

Free spirit, place of peaceI wanna know....

Free spirit, place of peaceTil that day comes...

I realized something about quantity and quality this weekend.

I had been getting into bed around 12:30 and getting up around 8:30 in the morning. But it would take me a while to fall asleep and I would wake up tired.

But I went camping last weekend and we slept in tents and went to bed around 12 and got up around 7, and I would wake up feeling alive and ready to meet the day, despite it being very cold out and us camping. But I think it helped that the sun woke us up and coincided with our natural cycle, rather than at home where there are artificial lights and computers and such keeping us up and disturbing our sleep.

Maybe I’ll try going to sleep with the curtain up, so the sun gradually wakes me up? Hm? 7 years ago

Free spirit, place of peaceSo life...

Sleeping has been really difficult lately.

I mean, I’m usually in bed at a decent hour

but it takes me hours of tossing and turning to fall asleep.

I guess I just have a lot on my mind right now.

Last night I was awake thinking of what on earth I’ll be doing after I graduate and I started getting scared about the future… and couldn’t shut down my mind. 7 years ago

Free spirit, place of peaceSunrise...

This usually doesn’t work out on days

when I want to watch the sunrise.

But it is so beautiful that it is fully worth it. 7 years ago

Free spirit, place of peaceDun.....

I feel so much more rested after a good night’s sleep, especially when I’ve been lacking…

Power naps help wonderfully. Short ones. 7 years ago
