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.

find a gym that I'll go regularly again
Have found something

It’s not the gym. It’s the exercise class—Zumba. Have been taking Zumba classes regularly and going to stick to it for a long long time!!! :)



Find the company that I want to work for (read all 7 entries…)
Searching for a new start

Last day with previous company, Jun 1/11. Been out of work since then. Although I need a job and that company is hiring, still not willing to go back. And am still happy for not wanting to go back.



going home for a visit
Trip to Hometown in March 2011

Went to Taiwan to visit my family and hometown, Mar 12-26/11, and had a great time. Can’t wait to do it again.



Just write something (read all 12 entries…)
been awhile

It’s been awhile since last time I wrote something here. I’ve become a permanent and passed my probation at work. Also I’ve been studying accounting and doing pretty well. I realized that how much I can do but won’t be able to do it at my current job. Being a hard working employee but am not being appreciated and so underpaid. It’s very crazy.

I’m glad I’m going back to study again. I’m not that stupid but my current job might make me feel that way sometimes. [sigh!]



Enjoy workout whenever I go to the gym (read all 41 entries…)
edit the goal again

The only workout I enjoy is Zumba. It’s not cheap but it’s something I can stick to forever.
