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.

any information of Fort Lauderdale, FL

Hi guys, long time no see

I’ve been always in this site even after passing the CPA exam. I am reading the new posts from time to time. I also check my friends’ progress with the exam.

I miss the states and I think I will go back again :) I will scarify my job with KPMG (Saudi Arabia) and come again.

My problem is I am not sure of what city should I go to this time. I used to live in Providence, RI and it was a nightmare due to the cold weather.

I’ve chosen Fort Lauderdale, FL to live in this time. I did an initial search of the city and it seems suitable for me. But I need your comments regarding the city because you’re citizens and you may have more information.

If you’re in my place and you have the option to choose a city to live in, what city you would you choose?

This time, I may sit for CMA or CIA exams. This goal has not been decided yet.

any works for BIG 4 please help

Hi guys,

I’ve started my job sine last week. I work as an Auditor. One coworker and I have CPA along with the partner. The other coworkers either preparing for the exam or have their country’s CA. When they knew that I am a CPA, they were very surprised and they look at me as a person coming from different planet. They think that I know EVERYTHING. I remember that I met the partner and asked me about my qualifications. When I told him that I am a CPA, he told me that I am READY. Then he asked me “did you go to the clients?” I also asked a senior auditor about something and he told me that you don’t need to ask. You’re a CPA.

My questions, what they should expect from me currently (don’t have any Auditing experience)?

What is the best thing that I should do to learn?

How long does it take to be a senior auditor?

The good news in this video is the way of releasing scores, and the bad thing is BEC will be the difficult section.
