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.

Quit my job
A question about this goal: How do you write a good notice letter if you get on with your manager? May 1st, 2007 07:34


If you get on good with your manager you shouldn’t quit in a letter. Ask your boss for a private meeting and then tell them in a very nice way why you need to leave the company. Be sure and let them know how much you like them and appreciate them as a boss. Let your boss know you will write a formal letter just for paperwork reasons and then give them a short, formal notice. If you talk to your boss in person and leave on good terms you should be able to get a good reference out of them.

Ok… I’ve just told my manager we need to talk and have a 1-1…
She seemed really cool about the 1-1.

I’m a bit scared now…

It has to be done though…
