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.

perfect my resume

2 cheers


XxRicaxX has written 1 entry about this goal


There is so much importance that I attribute to my marks, my future career, and success in the professional life. A resume is the one key piece that opens up those possibilities, that one package of paper that has to make a good enough impression on somebody to want to hire me for their business for the next years to come.

I know I’m young and I know that I can’t possibly perfect it to the extent that I want just yet, since I lack the work and general life experience. But I want to slowly chop away at it: I want to add another spoken language and another programming language to it, which I will hopefully have accomplished by the end of this year. I will be working for a law firm full-time all summer, and I hope to be elected Vice-President of an on-campus club for next year. I want to show to whoever reads my resume next that I am reliable, versatile, ambitious, and capable of competent leadership.

And, last but not least, I want to be proud of myself!
