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’m really bad at this. I get so tired and lazy in at night that every night I’m like…it doesn’t matter if I just skip tonight. Well it’s become a bad habit. 4 years ago


Cindy_ZhuDont give up

If I watch TV or read books after dinner, I usually fall asleep quickly and nerver wake up until next morning. So I have to brush my teeth and wash my face immediatly after taking the dinner. I hope I can insist on doing this everyday! 4 years ago

harmonypeaceloveI feel dumb but...

This is such a simple, basic part of personal hygiene… why can’t I just do it regularly?? I brush my teeth at least once per day, & on days that I work, I do it twice a day…. It’s when I don’t work, it doesn’t get done. Face washing, on days that I work, it’s done at least once… If I have a shower on a day I’m off work, it also gets done then. But not regularly, twice a day, when I get up & before bed. 4 years ago


Why is it the simple stuff I can’t seem to do with any consistency?

And I’m supposed to be a mommy and teach my daughter how to keep a regimine? Good god… please, why can’t I remember to go to bed after first taking care of these basics? 4 years ago

im ashamed:-( 7 years ago

amlygim very lazy :(

i have this goal like forever, i begin and then i become lazy. almost always when i have makeup with mascara i wash my face but others days when i dont have it or i feel sleepy i dont do it. i have to do it even if i havent makeup on. my face break out too easily. the thing with my teeth is the same, if i eat something sweet or smelly its probably that i wash them but if not i dont do it. i have luck to not have in the past years cavities. i go to the dentist every 6 months so in that part i take care. i only need to made the habit and acomplish the other goal to withen them. 7 years ago

jenabearTwo nights in a row!

I’m terrible about doing these things before bed…my face stopped breaking out when I turned 20 so I got lazy. I really need to address my teeth on a more regular basis because I have weak enamel…We’ll see how many nights in a row I can do… 7 years ago

I’ve been doing this for a couple of weeks now. And yay! my face looks great and i feel much cleaner. 9 years ago


Its just a matter of getting in the habet. 9 years ago


its alot easier to do it all in one go…. So say your having a shower right you put the face wash on and brush your teeth while it cleans your face then you put your whole face under the water and WHAM your done… then you go to bed with both a clean face and clean teeth. 9 years ago
