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.

Make more money doing my job! (read all 16 entries…)

I am so sick of thinking about it, looking for it and no coming up with anything. I hate searching the newspaper each week to find nothing. I hate the interviews that get you no where. I hate needing a job…much less finding a job. It seems to be the story of my life. And I won’t to end this story in the coming weeks!

What sort of job

are you looking for?

I assume you are using the internet to job search. Its way more efficient that searching paper want ads. But you are probably more conversant on that topic than I am.

So I suggest you get support for yourself during your job search. Help with the actual search would be good but I think more important would be support and help with dealing with how you feel about the job search and how you are doing at self-care around the job search as well as general self-care.
If you are open to it I can provide some support for that here in this forum on 43 Things.

I wish you well.
