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.

Pull Free

for 160 days!!!

145 days PF

washed my hair last night. It needed it. Noticed the hair in the original spot that I pulled is getting thicker. Thats good. I really have to take my hair vitamins more religiously, but im almost running out and im being stingy, cuz i dont wanna spend more money… I’m trying to save… but i need them, and they are for my well being right. We’ll see how it goes after my bills are paid.

Good luck with today guys!


I’ve made it to 130!! only 10 more days until i hit the 140 day goal!! The mini goals are really helping. Its nice to look and see all the accomplished tasks. Good luck to everyone!! Be strong!


pull free for 99 days. My confidence level is so much higher too. I’m not worried about people seeing bald spots anymore, because i dont have any. where my hair is growing back it is a little thinner, but i think thats also because its much shorter than the rest of my hair. but when i comb it, no sparseness, no baldness that i have to cover with a huge side part. SO happy!!

97 days pf

im working on day 98 today. pull free so far. my urges..well i have none. I try and keep my hair clean and washed. once i start getting that intense itchy feeling, i know its due for a nice scrub. good luck to you guys!!
