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.

get rid of my acne (read all 2 entries…)
I mostly consider this goal completed

But I still have a lot of red marks that need to fade (and scars, but those may not fill back out completely), and I still get some minor clogs here and there, so I’m not marking this complete just yet. I think I know what is triggering some of the clogging, so hopefully in a few weeks once I lay off what is potentially contributing, my skin will look even better. I also still have body acne, albeit mild, with numerous red marks as well. I’m hoping that by this Christmas my skin will be at a place where I feel I can complete this, but so far I really only get a couple of pimples every few weeks at most.

I cleared my acne up within 2-3 months by going water-only. I no longer use any tools or products, and I do believe that leaving my hands out of the cleansing equation the majority of the time is the most beneficial, using my hands only to rub away any flakes or if my skin feels like it might need it. I stopped picking, which helped immensely. I’ve also been water-only head-to-toe, and it’s been pretty wonderful thus far.



I want to:
