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.

I hate my body hair. I want it all GONE! 5 years ago

kittycatpurrfive visits so far

It makes such a difference. My skin doesn’t get blemishes from ingrown hairs anymore, and overall, it looks smoother. I hope at ten to twelve visits, I will be close to wrapping up. 5 years ago

kittycatpurrthis is so worth it

but it’s certainly painful. My electrologist uses the blend method, and that takes about six seconds a follicle (apparently). When it’s really stinging, I try to remind myself that one hair must be extra thick, and I’ll be happy to get rid of it.

Luckily, I’m not heavily bearded, so I can stop tweezing for a while and not be super noticeable. 5 years ago

kittycatpurrmade the appointment

First session will be in two and a half weeks. Hope it doesn’t hurt too dang bad. The electrologist insisted that going weekly is important, so as not to get discouraged. I really don’t want to dip into my savings for this, but I also want to be completely done with using tweezers every day.

All I have to do is NOT TWEEZE until the appointment. So it will be shaving every morning. 5 years ago

kateIt's going well

I can actually see a difference. It hasn’t been one full “growth cycle” yet, but I think it’s going really well. I’m going to keep going but I think I can mark this done. 7 years ago


The only one that has really hurt so far is that one pesky hair on my wrist. 7 years ago

kateThursday seems so far away!

I thought a week was probably too soon to schedule the next appointment, but there is a hair on my jaw that would be long-since-tweezed if I didn’t have the assurance that it is going to be zapped on Thursday. 7 years ago

kateI Survived :)

I didn’t know what to expect, but it wasn’t so bad. I’m going back next week. 7 years ago


Hey I went for a consultation today! It was interesting and informative. And right by my house, and they’ve got hours convenient to my schedule! I’m going back tomorrow. Wish me luck with my first 7.5 minute procedure! 7 years ago


First I have to stop plucking. 7 years ago
