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.

CrazieChickI hate this habit

My nails r so short, and ugly 4 years ago


kiwilimeits about time!!!!!

I have been biting my nails since i was 5, im now 21 and still doing it, i have tried to quit so many times and have failed miserably! i would manage to grow them for a few weeks then because i have been biting them for so long they would break or i would bite at a hang nail and tada! it starts again.This time i AM going to do it! i want nice nails! 7 years ago


I had really quite nice growing nails..
until.. I either caught them on something and caused them to break so they had to be bitten off.. or I just bit them off.. so now I have like one nail that is a bit long. So.. I’m sucking at this! But.. now I have to wait until they grow again! :( 7 years ago


my nails have grown! 7 years ago


Ok, this is my new years resoultion.. It’s going well.. kinda 7 years ago

stfujaimieI haven't in a little while..

Even when I do stop biting my nails, I don’t think they will look as nice as I want them to. :(

But I only bite them when they are uneven or chipped. So I think I shall resolve to carry a nail file with me now! 7 years ago

get_it_doneDay 1

I did bite my nails today. When I am making a conscious effort to stop it, I now realize how much I actually do it. I need to stop this! 7 years ago


Today is the day I will stop biting my nails! I will make myself not bite them and eventually I WILL have nice nails!!! 8 years ago

omglush_whoreit's hard :-(

shit! I was biting my nails.. curses! 8 years ago


I’ve bought some white cotton gloves, which I’m wearing now while I work, so I can’t bite my nails as I can’t get at them. It does look a bit strange, like I’m a mime artist or something!! 8 years ago

Ronilyn RiceNever have to buy fake nails AGAIN

And now I love to paint my nails. I think I’m just less of a nervous person… 8 years ago

Lady SStarting point

I have been working on the “stop biting my cuticles” for a while, although I suck at it. Isn’t that a bit silly? Saying I suck at that goal. Anyway, I do. I don’t really bit my nails, although when they are a little broken I rip them off with my teeth. In order to make good on this goal, I am going to keep clear nailpolish on every day. I have two or three coats right now, but it starts to pick, so I will have to take it off soon. 8 years ago
