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.

Tray 23 one to go...6-1-08


May 3 tray 21 May 18th

tray 22

Tray 20 almost done, in 4-17-08


Ooops tray 19 4-3-08

Tray 18 for almost three weeks. Oh well. An extra week isn’t going to hurt the teeth.

On tray 18-

only six trays to go and I’m done.

Five months to go....on tray

14, they’re really moving and looking beautiful.

On Tray 11

and not wearing them as much as I should but the amount they’ve moved is pretty incredible. Halfway through this now. So worth it.


They really must be moving, the last two trays have been painful

On tray 7 already...

and I can see a huge difference. The process is easy and it’s working. The first night the new tray goes in is definitely an Advil night—but that is the smartest way to do it. Give them the night and try to sleep away with the new tray in.

Nine months to go!

seeing the computer animation of the movement of my teeth

is motivating. I forgot that this was uploaded to my Invisalign account. Seeing where the teeth should be and how they’re moving every two weeks til the finish (one year) makes me so happy I’m doing this.

Zazumba 08 has gotten 9 cheers on this goal.
