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.

get a second job
had 2 second jobs

wouldn’t recommend it if you can help it (i.e. it shouldn’t be a choice thing). If you have the time on your hands and make enough from one job find a passion (even if that involves working somewhere).

If you need the money though a second / third job is the way to do it.


Manleen Copeman is back!

I so appreciate not having to rush to a second job anymore. I slog at mine, but at the end of the day dont carry any work home(like I did for 2 yrs), and no worries either.I find rushing from one place to another extremely stressful.

Still there's something to be said for those days

At least I was too busy to look up and see that 80 year old couple walking hand in hand and thinking (I want that).
I had a standing excuse for not having someone of my own (too busy).
Now sometimes I feel I’ve too much time on my hands and that’s my problem ;).

Manleen Copeman is back!

Its anyday better to be alive to that feeling, even if its painful- pain tell you you are alive and healthy. Knowing you want it will eventually get you to it. Till then, bon courage:)
