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.

stop picking my skin (read all 91 entries…)
Ah where are you guys.

Had a really bad night. Feeling discouraged. I need help. (I feel like I’ve been saying this for eight years. I don’t know how to help myself.)


it’s so hard to break this habit, but remember that progress is incremental, it doesn’t happen over night. so if you had one bad night, obviously you’re going to focus on that and it’ll make you feel even worse, like you’ve messed up—but try to think of all the times when you didn’t pick along side that as well.
I guess what might help is thinking of triggers for when you pick—like for me it’s when I relive painful memories or when I start touching my face, and once you become conscious of those it makes it easier to control or avoid the skin-picking. But try to stay positive for now and be good to yourself! :)

Thank you :) sometimes a little encouragement is the most helpful thing.


I want to:
