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.

stop pulling my hair (read all 50 entries…)
day one tomorrow!

Hello everyone :) how are you all doing? I am going to restart the pf pursuit tomorrow and want to be 27 days pullfree at the end of December. I was wearing bracelets for each day that I was pf for awhile and that really helped to give me a visual of my progress. I might do that starting tuesday if im pf monday.
I will record each day that I am pf and what I did to control the habit. good luck everyone! we can beat this!


Live. Laugh. Love. Happy New Year!

Have any tips for not pulling? I’ve been pulling since I was a year old (!) and I’d love to be rid of this habit.

some tips

- keep hair clean, the urge to pull is greater if its greasy.
- wear a headband or bandana over hair
- wear bracelets for every day pullfree
- get a stress ball to squeeze instead of pulling
- take up knitting or crochet to do while watching tv to keep your hands busy (or any other hobby that keeps your hands away from your hair during times of boredom.)
- find other stress outlets.

hope these help!
good luck :)


I want to:
