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.

look beautiful


Entries from everyone


For once in my life, I would like to look truly beautiful- from the in- and the outside. I don’t mean to everyone but I would like just one person to honestly think that I am really beautiful just the way I am and tell me that. 2 years ago

Alana JenkinsI want to be noticed

Since I was 18 and coming into my own home, I have pigged out on junk food because I couldn’t be assed to do any cooking. Still I have those days.. then on and on from then I have been putting on weight and really would like to help myself overcomethis… I have tried Diets, and Gym, and going up and down like a yo yo.. I know that when you have lipo you shrink down a couple of dress sizes but.. you need to exercise as well. So I have bought a bike to help me on my way.. if you can or if anyone can help me with my lip procedure I am all up for it. Thanks, Alana – Mae Jenkins 3 years ago

mdd23Getting closer

Trying to look better. As I’ve become older I’ve began taking much more of an interest in my appearance, and try to look as nice as I can (Usually. I’ve taken More, – being the key word here – of an interest but I still am not as committed as I Should be. I have a few issues to work out first, but I’m trying.) 3 years ago


I feel like I can’t be beautiful when I’m just… me. I have to fix my hair and put mascara on and wear really stylish clothes…. I need to be beautiful! 5 years ago
