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.

Get rid of my spots

It’s like an addiction. I pick so badly. I am thinking even as I do it that it is a terrible idea and it will only make things worse – so why do I still do it? Even if I don’t have any I will look closely at any mark, bump, blocked pore, folicle and pick until I have a big scab :( I look so bad right now. Covered in big red marks I need to cover with make-up, and the make-up makes more spots. I hate myself because of this. It makes me look/feel like a teenager and I’m 28.

Why is it so hard?

I love him but he annoys me! It’s difficult to remember how much I love him when he’s bugging me! But I really must. I can’t live without him. I need something like a talisman or one memory I can think of or look at when I want to snap at him!


You will not regret this experience! I loved it! As soon as I was back on the ground I wanted to do it again! I did it tandom so I didn’t really have to learn anything. It was easy and felt amazing. I was terrified on the morning of the jump but as soon as I tipped out of that plane – Wow! DO IT!
