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.

Path to success

I guess this past year, I haven’t really had what qualifies as a real job. In terms of a proper office, work colleagues, set hours and an atmosphere filled with activity.

Sending out my CV, I used to think maybe it got lost somewhere. But next week I have an interview with another finance company. It’s smaller compared to my last work place.

In all honesty, I’m scared, nervous, but deep down there’s a spark of excitement too. I know I’m capable but sometimes I don’t always feel it. I know to do well in finance I need to let my capability & confidence show.

Coincidently I had a strange vision last night of my grandma. I hope she’s watching over me from far up there.

Wish me luck.


Good luck Eileen!

Sending lots of luck your way :) :)
I believe in you. You’re a smart girl and I know you will find a job this year!
