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.

quidditiesA Jump Backwards

I’ve spent most of the year signed off work with depression. The past month or so I’ve started to feel so much better but realised how much I’ve been neglected myself lately.
I’m still having off days but at the moment I’m focusing on getting up, having a shower, brushing my teeth, and taking note of what I wear. Very basic level of care but small steps are needed right now. 17 months ago

quidditiesLittle Goals

I think I’m going to start having mini monthly goals to help this along. This’ll make it more manageable and hopefully help develop good habits.

For February I’m going to try to wear earring most days. 22 months ago


I´ve put much more effort into my wardrobe. I kind of have found a style, bought a lot of new clothes, gave away a lot too. So at least the risk of wearing something ugly is limited. Overall my fashion style has improved.
I have new glasses and a new hairstyle.
BUT need to get more regular in skincare routine, gym, make up…. 23 months ago

variiibrows ;)

Got my eyebrows threaded last weekend, Ive been wanting to do it for quite a while now! It was kinda exciting to me because it was the first time, didnt know what to expect. Its less painfull than waxing, however its more painful than tweezing to me personally. Thats mainly because they are “pulling” or threading several hairs at once…so like tweezing but multiplied by however many hairs.
Not a bad experience, I might however go to a different place next time. :) 2 years ago


This is not going so well.. It is so hard when i get back from work to make an effort to get changed into a nice outfit when all I want to do at the moment is get into my pjs. 3 years ago

dragonfly35I'm still not that good at this

but I’ve definitely improved. I’m teaching often enough (four days a week in yoga classes) that I’m much more aware of “upkeep” of my hands and feet in particular, and I’ve also gotten myself some more teaching clothes. I’m a bit more conscientious about getting my hair cut in a timely manner. I need to more regularly take care of my skin, but in general, I feel much more presentable these days. I think I’ll go ahead and retired this goal for now. 3 years ago

dragonfly35Redid my nails again

but honestly did a pretty bad job. I’m trying to be careful and make them look good but just haven’t been that successful since the first time. I’m not very good at this!

At least I’m keeping my hands and feet looking passable for class. I’ve been steaming my face the last couple of days because it was breaking out after using sunscreen on it in Yosemite, but I didn’t have the oil with me to use. It needs a good treatment tonight or tomorrow.

I did get a fantastic haircut! My stylist did an exceptional job this time. 3 years ago

dragonfly35This has been sliding in a bad way

since I’ve been so busy. Redid my toenails today; I didn’t do as good a job as I did last time, and I need to throw out the first polish I tried to use, but it turned out fine in the end. Definitely would not be mistaken for professional, though. I’ll try again soon.

I also pampered my fingernails a little.

Still being very spotty about remembering the other aspects of hand and foot care and about my skin as well. (Luckily, my skin isn’t too spotty. Just my skin care.) 3 years ago


seems to have become my “vanity day” for various reasons. Tomorrow I have my teaching demo so this week I was extra careful with the pedicure. Honestly, I usually rush through putting nail polish on my toes, figuring no one will notice, and it doesn’t look very nice. Today’s isn’t perfect – there are some minor flaws and I wouldn’t charge money for it – but it is much nicer than my usual. I also took the time to trim and buff my fingernails and put on cuticle oil and lotion.

Still really am not doing the OCM on my face and it shows that I’m not. If I have time this evening, I’ll do it. 3 years ago
