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.

ZHalf the stone

I did not lose as much as I wanted to, but I lost half a stone and could not be prouder of myself…actually, I’d be prouder if I had actually managed to lose a whole stone! But I am halfway there and it counts towards something. Just half a stone to go, which is under 10 pounds :D 12 months ago


4pounds less :)
I feel good! 13 months ago

ZBad stage

I’m at a place where I don’t even fit in most, THE MAJORITY, of my closet. Something needs to be done. I can’t just sit on my tush and think it’ll just happen.
If I want ‘that body’, then I must work hard for it. 14 months ago


Going over old photos over the years. They make me feel happy. Seeing my parents in their teenage years, photos of my grandparents, my sisters and brothers, just melts my heart :) 15 months ago

ZIt's a cycle

Compared to 4 years back, I eat so much better. It’s really a cycle of eating healthy and every now and then indulge.
As far as the healthy range goes, I am definitely more of a vegetable person than a fruity girl. 15 months ago

My boyfriend’s notes.

He is so talented and such a beautiful writer. He has this way of using words in such way that they take me to wonderland :) 15 months ago

ZNo such thing as clear skin...for me anyways

My skin is SO much better. My high school years, not so much as that’s when I started breaking out.
Nowadays, the best way I’ve been trying to keep my skin clear is through consistency with the productsi use.
I have a beauty regime that works for me. Even tho I still break out every now and then, especially around that time of the month, my skin gradually responds to my regime.
I don’t feel as self conscious and I don’t even put on make up at times.

Tips: regular beauty regime helps. Be consistent with the products you use. Don’t expect immediate results, your skin needs time to heal ( especially for scares to fade). Exercise, sleep and eat well! 16 months ago

ZTime to invest...a home.

I used to want clothes, make up, shoes ( which I still do) but these things are not as desirable as they once used to be. I guess because I am getting older and wiser ( yes I said wiser) that I want better things…
No more of the days of going crazy over the sale reductions because lately I’ve been really thinking about eventually getting a mortgage. Currently renting and what I pay is just about the price of a mortgage.
So the plan is to save as much as I can over the next 3 years, just enough time to settle my mind about whether I will stay in London or move abroad. 16 months ago

ZIt's who I am

My style is my personality and feeling good about myself. Confidence is key to style. It took me a while and even tho I still get insecure every now and then, I feel great. I have never felt this good about my future and state of being before. At 24 and I finally feel like a have a better understanding of myself! 16 months ago

ZGreek Trip

Going to Greece (Athens, then Santorini, then maybe Delphi), then back to Athens), meaning i’ll definitely be in a 2 piece!
I’m currently watching my diet and exercising to tone up here and there…the proof will be in the pudding soon enough! Super excited for it :) 21 months ago

ZThank you Mr Bigmighty

Thank you so much for that inspirational reality check :) It was very much needed. 21 months ago

Z3 Weeks Holiday in IN :)

I went to Indianapolis on the 20th of June and returned to London on Thursday 12th of July.
AMAZING is what I’d say it was. More than I would of ever imagined. I loved, I laughed and I lived. Best investment this year and money well spent on my ticket! I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.
I got to meet my cute niece, who’s now sweetly 3 years old and saw my sisters I hadn’t seen in forever. Spent time with friends who made it seem like we had never parted…and found love again with my high school crush :)
Hoping to go again for the Christmas holidays, xx. 2 years ago

ZAlmost there

Im doing it to stay healthy and tone up a couple of parts of my body. But mainly to be a bit healthier and keep up the work :)
Remember that without health, there’s not much you can do. 2 years ago


Looks like you’re on top of things :) 2 years ago
