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.

another chance


Where do I start?

After 2 and a half years in my current job, I found out 2 months ago that I have little more than a month in the role as my job is about to be further offshored elsewhere. I managed to get a contract job with the projects team until Feb 2011, so now I have a few more months to find a more permanent job I love.

I intend to make full use of the coming months to really be honest with myself and really find a job more suited to my purpose. I really hope I get that job in Operations——I already interviewed and I’ve already been shortlisted before the headcount review. Oh well, at least I have time to beef up my project management skills in my contract role.

Ok, that’s all for now.

no words

There are no words to express how much I loathe my current job. I am seriously not learning anything new anymore nor am I motivated to do anything anymore. Quitting in 60 days, I promise.


i have an idea of the kinds of industries that i want to work in: fashion or publishing. i fancy doing merchandising or marketing work for a multinational fashion retail company or perhaps styling fashion editorials each month. i also think i’d do well in a marketing job—-like coming up with strategies for brand or product marketing. i don’t know what about IT i cannot stand. i just don’t see the tangible value that IT brings to a business. haha.
