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.

I get a free gym membership from my work. I don’t like gym but I had 2 simple and quick work outs made for me. I try to go often. Will let you know how it pans out.

Create a career pathway that reflects the life I want. (read all 2 entries…)

I have been thinking about this a lot. People tell me I need to do this or that, make money, do what I have training in, you name it. Thinking about this I want to make my work about me. Money and work is to provide life but also to compliment it.

I want to do things that make me feel satisfied and gives me time to myself, allows me a a good income that supports my love of travel and visiting cultural places, museums, taking courses. That kind of thing.

I have skills that I enjoy, these include photography, Reiki, Tarot, writing, and videography. Videography makes me nervous so I will resist focusing on it but leave it as an open option.

My Reiki work is happening… slowly. I have a website, cards and some contacts for fairs and such. It’s a start.

Create a career pathway that reflects the life I want. (read all 2 entries…)

This is find frustrating. There appears to be lot’s of jobs, just not so much for people with so little experience. Goal 1: Get more experience. Find places I can volunteer on weekends. (This interferes with my debt reduction job plan…. whatever) Good luck me!
