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.

accept myself for who I am

I need to accept myself. Enough said.

drop a dress size
Drop A Dress Size

For two long I’ve stared at other people in jealously over how skinny and great they look. I’ve had enough – this time I’m gonna make this a reality. I want to feel more comfortable in my own skin and confident. I’m going to take it easy though, I’m not going to exercise too hard – I made that mistake when I was younger and my period stopped, don’t worry it’s started again! And I will exercise three times a week coz that’s all you need. I will eat healthy – plenty of fruit and veg – and the occasional treat here and there. I will not fall off the wagon this time, I beleive in myself this time.

grow my very curly hair long

I was looking through old family photos and I came across a school photo of when I was five. My hair was mid-back length and it looked really beautiful – I’m not being vain I promise, but my curls really did look good.
My hair is very curly – not an afro – and dark, and shoulder length. I really want it long again to show my curls in their full glory!
I am a self-confessed straightening addict but from now on I vow to refrain from flat irons and save it for VERY formal occasions. I will not fall off the wagon.
