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.

flangerellaI was regularly staying up too late only getting 5 hours a night

It was making me feel blue

How I did it? I got off the iPad by 10pm, I made sure I sat in the semi dark, ie didn’t put bright room lights on. I kept off the caffeine. I also gave myself a talking to because it’s my own fault if I feel blue because of lack sleep.

All common sense I know!

I feel so much more myself. Will be asleep b4 11 again tonight 4 months ago

TinyLambHere we go again

It isn’t that I want to get ‘more’ sleep – well, not exactly. I usually get into a habit or routine of going to bed at half past ten and waking up at about eight. Thing is, I’m swamped at the moment and have just given that up, and now I’m out of the routine. I just need to get back into that routine.

My goal? To have this done within a fortnight and a bit.

By going to sleep earlier, no later than midnight, I will be able to achieve this goal. With clinical starting at 7 am next year is it important that I get enough sleep the night before. By finishing homework early in the day I will be able to get to sleep before midnight and be well rested for the next day. 7 months ago

LittleFATMeUh, change in plans.

Four years this goal has been on my 43things. A lifetime this has been a problem. As a baby I never slept for more than a few hours a night and I was up all day. My mom would always say, “You’re the last one down and the first one up!”
Night comes and suddenly nothing I did matters, I am awake and artistically I am incredibly productive. So I have a plan. I am going to take naps. That’s right. If I sleep less than six hours at night I am planning a 90 minute nap in the early afternoon.
Yep, that’s the plan! 7 months ago

CharlesW894/19 UPDATE

My sleep over the past week has been great! Well, except for one day, which was due to school assignments. Other than that I’ve been getting a solid 8-9 hours and have been waking up on my own (without alarm). Will keep doing what I’m doing! Nothing less than 7 hours. 8 months ago
