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.

Had gone to a 1/4 of a pill and then while we were on vacation I pretty much just went off of them. At this point, I don’t think I’ve had a pill for about 2 weeks. Am having to take some Bayer every now and again for pain, but no more prescription!

Well, I’m not including allergy prescriptions. Those are okay. Don’t plan to get off of those. 7 years ago

kimpauley1/2 a pill

Down to 1/2 a pill a night. Working to get completely rid of them. 7 years ago


Have made quite a bit of progress here. Switched doctors (well, the old one retired) and canceled the muscle relaxers completely. The presecription for the Vicodin is now 3 a day instead of four, but I’m taking usually just 1 instead, unless it is a bad pain day. 7 years ago

kimpauleyTotally off the evil pill

Yay! The bad thing…I was constantly queasy for about two weeks and good for nothing. But that is finally clearing up and I’m OFF the nasty, evil pill for good!

Now, just two more pills to go… 8 years ago

kimpauleyMore progress...

Last month the doctor cut one pill to half (from 6 a day to 3 a day) and this month he took the EVIL pill from 75mg to 32mg. Yay! 8 years ago
