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.

sld1Keeping it current.

I keep my professional/work resume current—one never knows.

But I’m especially proud of my personal resume of volunteerism and leadership in the faith community. This is the long one, too!! 6 years ago

JaniFI've just got to get it done.

It can’t really be that hard, right? It’s just such an annoyingly white piece of paper.

It used to be that I hated the idea of writing one because it felt like bragging.

Now I hate the idea of writing one because I don’t think I have anything worth putting on it. Does a skimpy resume equal a skimpy life? What exactly HAVE I been doing for the last four years? 6 years ago

Cassiopeiait was beautiful

it was a beautiful resume, and now i have it to build on forever. 6 years ago


Looks like this goal will be moving up the list, so to speak, as it seems that I’ll be needing a résumé very soon. I don’t mean in a good way, though, like I graduated, but more like there are no classes offered next semester that will count toward my major, so I’ll have to get a full-time job for a little while.

And I only need 8 more classes! Sometimes I feel like I’m going to be 60 before I ever get this stupid degree. Sigh. 7 years ago


I wrote a resume and it got me a job. Keep your resume to the point—let them “figure you out” on a page, and you don’t have to list every single thing you’ve ever done in your life. Achievements are nice. 7 years ago

lobjust wrote 2 more

one for each of my oldest sons. They’re both going to look for part-time jobs, so I got their resumes ready for them. 7 years ago


Technically, I’ve already written a resume. Several of them, in fact, but I’ve never written my own. I’ve helped lots of friends and family members with theirs, and sometimes these people get jobs, so that’s encouraging. I have a hard time to sum up my own experiences and accomplishments, it seems so much easier to write them for other people. This one will probably get put off for a little while, I’m not exactly in the market for resume-requiring work at the moment. 7 years ago

i actually finished this months ago, i wrote in in one day. but, since then i have had it looked over by several people for edits and i can definately say now that it is finished. 7 years ago
