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.

Time for my baby

I am 4 months pregnant and working in consulting. I’ve been very successful at this job despite being quite young and having to learn lots on the job. I’ve also never been in a place where I feel more valued or where I can express my talents better.

But I have a baby on the way and the circumstances under which I work are contrary to my core values about how I want to raise my baby. I want to be present and not trading a few stolen hours with my baby for money (albeit a lot of money)

I’m looking for a way to make money, be happy and yet be at home in the afternoons and evenings. Morning only work, or work when I need to only.

What can this mystery job be?That is the questions

What a great decision on your part at such a young age. Being with your child is the greatest gift in life and is something to cherish for the rest of you and your child’s life that continues throughout their lives. Having satisfying and profitable work at home is surely a way to have everything that you want and need.

Lets both achieve our goals!

Hi kerrythekid, happy wednesday to you!

I’ve got a goal to help people get a job they love and become financially independent. Why not help each other out? 2 people get a goal accomplished instead of one! How does that sound? : )

Thanks!

Alan
