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.

qglasStill struggling

Passed my one-day goal and will have my 3-day goal if when I get through tomorrow. I’ve got a ton of work coming up plus a family vacation so hopefully I’ll just be too damn busy—I do seem to manage better when I’m distracted. 6 months ago

Born of StardustDay 5--- Fell asleep at work in the nurse's office

....And didn’t pull any hairs today! Partly because I was so tired. I didn’t sleep much last night, because I have a gust coming today and my apartment was a mess, so I cleaned it up! 6 months ago

Born of StardustDay 4---- Must I always be doomed to repeat my mistakes?

I only pulled two times and after each time I stopped myself from pulling further. :) I can keep this up! I can do it! 6 months ago

Born of StardustDay 3--- Small Victories

I didn’t pull at all today! Three cheers for small victories! I can keep this up! 6 months ago

Born of StardustDay 2--- Not a hair from my heady-heady-head

Day 2 and I didn’t pull any. It seems like too little too late, but I am going to try to do my best before the spool unravels even further. 6 months ago

Born of StardustDay 1--- As an artist with a paintbrush: Pull myself up with a rock tied to my back and try again

I only pulled one hair today. Let’s hope that I can keep this up. I can feel my life slipping through my fingers. I need to take some control of my life as an artist takes control of a paint brush.

Love myself as I am, but aspire for better. 6 months ago

Born of StardustDay 1--- Again goes the cycle

I had stopped for a long time and now I’ve pretty much ruined the progress that I made.

I pulled 3 hairs today. I am going to keep track of progress here.

I have been so happy at times and so depressed at others here in Japan. I am so overwhelmed and at times so lonely. 7 months ago

TricGirlJunior High With Trich= BAD

Junior high 7’th grade is almost done at my school and i have been made fun of multiple times!! Its always behind my back, they may think they are being quiet but truth be told they are not!!! And then they have the nerve to turn around and act like my friends? One girl that was always nice to me and we hung out alot, was saying stuff like, ” oh my god, if she got any f* balder we might as well just rip out the rest of her hair and maybe then shell look DECENTWTF!!! She said this yesterday in the same classroom 3 rows away, and then she asked me,” So what are u doing for your birthday, im your friend so im hangin out with u right?” i turned around and started talking to my REAL friends! Sorry if u read this and got bored but ADVICE PLEASE! :( 7 months ago

shaylevsoBattle with Trich

I developed trich as a 20 year old female after an episode of pretty severe depression. My trich presents itself during stressful times in addition to when I am tired. I feel like I have tried everything to stop. I’ve met with a trich therapist in the past and I am currently on meds to help. Unfortunately it just seems to get worse. I have a considerable amount of hair loss on the crown of my head and spend time trying to cover it up. I feel hopeless. Sometimes when I am not even thinking my hand will find my head and pull out the hairs that don’t feel “right” like the hairs that are more rough or curlier. At this point any advice helps. I own a spinner ring. I just want this battle to end because it has left me ashamed, embarrassed, and ugly. 7 months ago

qglasOne hour

Working on a single hour. If I can get that, I’ll try for one day. 8 months ago
