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.

Job Search (1)

I am looking for a job. I hate the whole job search process. What I especially hate is applying and interviewing for jobs that are already going to an internal candidate simply because they are an internal candidate. I recently applied and interviewed for a job and was told that the gave the positions to 2 internal candidates. I know that I had more expereince than both of the candidates that got the jobs. I am trying to look at the situation as practice and as a learning expereince but it’s tough. I was a shocked because I had been told that I was probably going to get the job. It was silly of me to believe that. Nothing is sure until you have an offer in hand.

It’s been difficult to shake off the shock. The expereince has made me question my career direction. I’m trying to re-exaimine what I want to do plus I’m scheduling some informational interviews to get more insight.

Design a website
Get a Move on! Define yourself and your skills!

The idea of a website is one that I have wanted to do for a while. I really want to start a private practice and work as a consultant. To do this, I need to get the word out that I available and what my skills are.
