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.

Optionally_MineModern Opportunities ..

I remember commenting to someone somewhere that this goal will never be complete until I am working in a job I love.

And I do love the work I am doing nine months in and feel settled .. but that doesn’t mean I am not thinking of the possibilities which could lay ahead.

I have brought my CV up to date again to sit peacefully resting until an opportunity presents itself for me to be impulsively decisive with an organised flourish.

This was one of the very first goals I added when I joined 43t .. My CV has come so far .. just like me. 6 months ago

noorr1986So glad

I actually spent some time in updating the content and the layout to update my CV because I was seriously thinking of going to graduate school this year and I needed the CV for application and with the help of my hubsy it ended up pretty neat. I can say that it is important that I did it to see where I am and work hard/focus in the direction I am headed.I also realized that I should wait for at least a year before I think of applying for new jobs for my CV to be really powerful and have a serious impact on my options and offers. 10 months ago

Optionally_MineAnd again .. I'm getting good at this ..

After transferring from the PC to the laptop (I’ve yet to work out how to virtually move my documents) I found an older CV in my email to bring up to date. 22 months ago

I’ve had a fab year of courses and finishing stuff, so the ol’ CV should look reasonably impressive, methinks! It’s not exactly ‘zingy’, but a bit of a rejiggle to include my web-type stuff and I’ll see what it can hook, I guess?! 23 months ago

Optionally_MineNow for the nitty gritty ..

Last week i was given a new contract which is basically a get out clause because the company is running at a loss .. i’ve known for a while now that the people behind this company seem very good at dissolving companies and starting anew so i’ve never felt secure, in fact they still owe me five weeks pay from when i first started .. i am getting paid now week to week but its still iffy .. trouble is they are not a bad lot, they seem to be struggling to make a new company work, the experience for me is a bonus and i do enjoy the work .. so i’m in a dilemma, do i cut my losses and find something else or ..

Quite by chance i came across two weekend jobs and thought okay compromise i updated my CV and applied .. of course it would mean i could end up working seven days a week but at the same time if this company does go out of business i don’t want to end up doing nothing. 2 years ago
