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.

Work forced me to get normal sleeping hours. I used to stay up until 2 or 3 am and wake up around noon. But now I have to be up at 5:30 for work so I usually go to bed around 10 or 11.

I like that on my days off work I can’t sleep past 8 or 8:30. I get more done and I feel like I have a longer day off, because I am awake for more of the day than I was when I would sleep until noon.

However, I do not like going to sleep that early. I am a night person, I will always be a night person. There is just something peaceful about the night, when most everyone else is asleep and it’s sort of quiet outside.

So I have mixed feelings about my new sleep pattern. Ideally I’d like to stay up until 12 or 1, but it’s just not practical right now with my job. 2 years ago
