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.

- The Robots.

Elfen_athGet More Sleepies

Set one day of the week, any day that you’re going to go to bed early. Make it reasonable ie not before a deadline or exam or particularly busy day. Get all your affairs in order – get your work done early, read the news / gossip thread earlier that day etc then go to bed at 2 hours earlier than normal. All this other advice about drinking herbal tea, taking a candlelit bath, these are just gimicks, they dont work for everyone who wants to go to sleep relaxed, it all depend on what type of person you are. Me? – i have some horlicks!

The trick with this is all about habit! Keep continuing this, give a day or two leeway in the beginning. Soon your body will adjust to the new bodyclock and you’ll start feeling tired around your new set time.

remember guys: “motivation may get you start, but habit yields results.” – just think how tired and groggy you felt on days where you went to bed at 5! lol

In the end, you’ll wonder why you ever stayed up past 2!! Good luck! 13 months ago

EvilferretStill working on this one...

It’s a couple of years later, and I’m still fighting with this one. I still find myself staying up later than I should. 14 months ago

petitemom2Ongoing battle

This is a daily battle, but my goal here is to establish a regular bedtime and stick to it. There are exceptions and things that come up, but overall, need more sleep. 14 months ago

auntoptics30more sleep tonight

I think I will probably have to take melatonin tonight because my sleep pattern is so messed up. I’m glad I’m taking a night class for the first class but I still don’t want to wake up late. I have a lot I need to do before school. I also have to turn off devices a half hour to an hour before sleeping. I really hope I have success with this because I will have more energy and I don’t want to have to buy coffee at school on the 2 days I’m there all day, it’s such a waste of money that could be used for something else. I really hope to get the majority of my homework done during my break at school so I have time for more sleep and other things at home. One of my professors is already sending a number of emails and I think trying to scare us, as he listed the grades given for the last 12 years he’s been teaching this course. I’m nervous about a new semester but if I can get into a normal sleep schedule it will help. I have never really had a normal sleep schedule as I have always been a night owl even when I was in high school I went to sleep late and had a hard time getting up in the morning. I really need to think about how I’m going to spend every hour of my day so I get everything done but I still get enough sleep. So this goal can help me with my other goals. 16 months ago

auntoptics30working on it

I still went to sleep late, but I did wake up earlier. I read for awhile before going to sleep. I also bought a lavender vanilla body spray that is supposed to be calming for sleeping. 16 months ago

auntoptics30somethings to try

I may try taking melatonin if I have trouble falling asleep
I need to take myself away from devices an hour before bed.
I plan to exercise today, but not close to bedtime.
I might try some lavender aromatherapy before bed
I need to make my room very dark 16 months ago

auntoptics30really having a hard time with this one

Ok, I didn’t sleep last night, up late on the computer/watching t.v. and then once in bed I couldn’t fall asleep so I read. I have to work today, which will not be easy, but I think if I can just get through the day I can sleep at a normal time tonight and maybe get myself back into a routine. 16 months ago

auntoptics30off to a bumpy start

So far I find I’m going to sleep even later, and of course ultimately waking up later as well (on day when I don’t work). I’m not going to give up though. 16 months ago

auntoptics30why is it so hard?

Why is something so natural and relaxing so difficult to accomplish? It’s hard for me to wind down at the end of the day, my mind seems to be so active at night. Not sure how to start improving this, but I need to because school starts again soon. 16 months ago
