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.

My alarms now go off at 6:20 and 6:35. I like having that extra time in the morning. 6 years ago


I have always been one to stay up late and sleep in and that habit was only aggravated by working at a convenience store where I worked until 11:30 pm many nights. I now start work at 8 am and have a 25 min drive to get there. I can get up at 7 and make it to work, but it’s too stressful to rush like that every morning. With daylight savings time, I started setting my alarm for 6:30 with a backup at 7 in case I fall back asleep. Ideally, I would like to get up at 6 to give myself time to get something done before work whether it’s exercising or whatnot. I’m gradually going to push my alarms back 5 min. at a time. Right now I have my first alarm set at 6:30 and the second at 6:55. I’m going to narrow that gap too to train myself to get up with the first alarm instead of falling back asleep because I know the second one will wake me up in time. I think Jan. 1 I will move the 2nd alarm back another 5 min. I have such a hard time adjusting to changes in my sleep cycle that I think this 5 minutes at a time is the best way to make this a permanent change without making myself overtired. It will be easier in the spring too when it’s not pitch black at 7. 7 years ago
