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.

Have a flat of my own

Need a good job first, but I can start by saving up so I have a good amount of cash for a deposit and furniture in the future whenever I can afford to get a flat.

get an apprenticeship
Update 1 - Job

I’ve been unemployed since 2010 and I’m looking for an employer so I can start a Business Admin apprenticeship. For the meantime, as I have nothing to aim for work wise at the moment apart from actually getting an INTERVIEW let alone an actual job, I’m going to apply myself to voluntary work.
I rang the local primary school today to ask if I could speak to someone to go back and do some more voluntary and I’m just waiting for a call back so I can speak to the appropriate person about it. Just something to keep me busy for a few afternoons a week and also good for a CV and overall experience.
Just get myself out there instead of waiting for everyone to come to me, which obviously isn’t going to happen. I need to be keen and enthusiastic and show a willingness to be there. If I say that I’ve been doing nothing, it doesn’t sound very good. I’ll try and keep this updated when things happen.

write a diary

I’m going to try and keep this up everyday on a website called

It is basically like a magic diary and once you have wrote in it, you send it to an email and on a certain date in the future you will read it back. So it’s kind of like a secret diary and only you have access to it.
