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.

Dress better (read all 5 entries…)

make up and hair-check
a patterned skirt and a black t-shirt, sure I wear it every week, but it is easy and looks good with the cardigan I keep at work. Also remembered to put on my pearls. AND I rolled my shirt, so it is (almost) lint free.

getting there….slowly :)

I think once my weight is something I like, and also stable, then this will be a really fun goal to meet. I love clothes, but it’s always so frustrating how they fit. Now that I’ve lost 20lbs, I can wear so much more, but once I lose another 20, oh man, not quite anything I want, since I’m so short, but so close, and it’s going to be awesome!



I want to:
