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.

Star_ShadowGet up the first time my alarm clock goes off.

This is something that I’m terrible at doing, much to my partner’s frustration! I know that it makes sense to do this, as apart from anything else it would mean that I could set my alarm later! 6 years ago

RacerGirl8807Just This Morning

I actually got up for a few minutes at my normal time, then went BACK to bed and slept until 9:30! I’m so frustrated, because I feel like I waste my entire morning. I’m taking some Benadryl tonight and going to bed at 10:30…we’ll see how it goes. 6 years ago

tooter79can't do it

Sleep is just too good. My dreams have been pretty cool lately too. I’m always rushing in the morning though. Maybe I should go to bed earlier and I’ll get the sleep I want 6 years ago


Otherwise I stay under the duvet way too long 6 years ago

sabbathdaysjourneyGetting Up

I’m not a ‘snoozer’ and it pays off. Besides, once you get up and at ‘em, you’re less sleepy and you can move forward with you day. Why prolong the inevitable? Besides, in the grand scheme of things, what difference is 7 extra minutes of sleep going to make anyway?? 9 years ago

cindylou4 Alarms

That’s right. That is how many alarms I set each night to make sure that I get up in the morning. There is some force that prevents me from waking up in the morning. I just wasn’t meant to be a morning person, I suppose. 9 years ago
