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.

organize my Mary Kay stuff

willowtandraStill there

My little Mary Kay cupboard is almost empty. I didn’t sell as much as I would have liked, and finally decided there was no sense keeping things I wouldn’t use. If it was expired or at least really old, I ditched it. I have migrated everything to one of the two bathrooms for future use. I kept the majority of the makeup, which I will now start wearing more often (fingers crossed), and I just have a couple of demo bags to go through. Once the demo bags are gone through, I will organize the makeup a bit better, and then I will be done and I can cross this off my list!! 6 years ago

willowtandraHalf Done

Just another hour or so worth of work and this will be organized and ready to sell off. Some of it is expired, so I’m either going to keep it or toss it. Wouldn’t be ethical to sell it :) 6 years ago

willowtandraClosing up shop

I’ve been a consultant for 3 years, and I haven’t done a darn thing with it. At the end of this month my contract officially ends and if I want to order more I’ll have to purchase a new start up kit and sign a new contract. I tried it, and it didn’t work for me. Oh well. Now I’ll just have to sell off all of my existing merchandise. Probably on eBay, even though contract says I can’t. I don’t foresee myself getting back into this business, so I might as well just get rid of the stuff I won’t use and make my money back on it. I guess I still need to organize it if I’m going to sell it off unconsultantly like so I’ll keep this goal just the way it is. 6 years ago

willowtandraMary Kay order

I just placed a Mary Kay order, so when it comes in this should be a good time to start getting things organized. Hopefully once that happens I’ll stay on top of it better. 7 years ago


I have to be one of the most disorganized Mary Kay consultants out there. I don’t know where anything is, and my paperwork is scary. It’s a good thing I don’t do much with this, at least not enough to claim for taxes. However, life would be much easier if I got this done, so hopefully this one won’t sit in my list too long. 7 years ago
