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.

ClumsyPandaNew job!

It’s amazing how quickly this has happened!
Just this week on Wednesday I applied for a receptionist/admin vacancy at an Optometrists where the hours sounded perfect for me, and the job sounded really interesting, on the same day they rang me up to ask me to come in for interview on the Friday, then they rang me yesterday (Saturday) and offered me the job! I start in a weeks time!
I don’t know if this will turn out to be my dream job, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. I was starting to feel really low in my current job, and I knew that retail was not the job for me. This new job will enable me to build on my admin skills so I feel really positive about this. 14 months ago

ClumsyPandaMy Career personality

INFP – Questor

INFPs are idealistic, self-sacrificing, and somewhat cool or reserved. They are very family and home oriented, and have a high capacity for caring. High sense of honor derived from internal values. 1% of the total population.

INFP’s feel internal turmoil when they find themselves in situations in which there is conflict between their inner code of ethics and their relationships with others. They feel caught between pleasing others and maintaining their own integrity. Their natural tendency to identify with others, compounded with their self-sacrificial dispositions, tends to leave them confused as to who they really are. Their quiet personalities further feeds their feelings of depersonalization. The INFP’s quest for self-identity then seems even more alluring — but increasingly impossible to attain.

As with all NFs, the INFP will feel lost and perplexed at stressful times. As stress builds, INFP’s become disconnected from their own personality and perceived place in life. They will lose sight of who they are in relation to time and place. They may not make basic observations, while instead they will focus on the more abstract and symbolic meanings of a particular interaction. This can sometimes baffle those who expect more direct communication and a fairly concrete relationship.


This lists represent careers and jobs people of your type tend to enjoy doing. The job requirements are similar to the personality tendencies of your personality type. It is important to remember that this is not a list of all the jobs possible. And it is very important to remember that people can, and frequently do, fill jobs that are dissimilar to their personality… this happens all the time…and sometimes works out quite well.

Sarah LeeThree Months In...

I seem to be getting along with my co-workers a bit better now. A few things have happened between us that have bonded us a little. One being a manager having sick leave for two weeks, and the other having to do with our office being redone and another co-worker leaving.

Now I just need to sort out my selling skills. I think I can be able to focus on travel insurance now that I’m a bit more familiar with it and car insurance as well. If I can get those tow bits out of my mouth I think I will be doing rather well. 20 months ago

Sarah LeeOne Month Update

So I’ve had my new job for about a month and I’m getting sort of mixed feedback from it.

On the one hand, its great to have a job again. It’s part time and my till hasn’t been off more than £2. I’m still learning all the details of the job, but that’s normal.

However, I’ve been involved in a couple of less than enthusiastic conversations with my manager. I don’t know if I’m just not learning quick enough or I’m subconsciously sabotaging myself or what is going on.

I make stupid mistakes which make me doubt my ability to do the job and therefore give me low self-confidence.

I’ll stick with it as we could use the money, but I keep having this feeling that I’ll be fired or something. 22 months ago

Sarah LeeNew Day Job

After being made redundant in June of last year and being unemployed for nearly six months I now have a day job again. I start work at my local Post Office next week with twenty-four hours of training.

It’s a part-time job involving shift work, but I bought a new planner to keep track of hours so that shouldn’t be an issue. Its in town and within walking distance.

It is sixteen hours a week which will leave me plenty of time to myself or if I should so choose to get a second job. But I think I will take the opportunity to become more serious about my writing hobby as I’ve begun to make a tiny amount of money off it now (somewhere in the region of $20 after a year and a half). 23 months ago

Sarah LeeRedundancy

I’ve been made redundant from my support job. It happened two days before I left to visit my parents so when I get back home I’ll have to start looking for a new one.

The plan is to just find something (anything) to have a paycheck and then look for something a bit more permanent. Fun times. 2 years ago
