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.

And I only worked 88 hours for NBCF, for the shameful record. 4 years ago


I rejected a traineeship.. 4 years ago


I was supposed to finish on Friday but 100+ hours sounds so much better than 88.
It’s cool, though. I can say goodbye to some really neat people, and learn Russian from a new volunteer! :) 4 years ago


I started interning at the National Breast Cancer Foundation in Sydney just before Christmas. It’s alright. I like the feeling of being competent at something, and everyone there is extremely patient and helpful. I plan to work Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays throughout January, because if I’m after a glowing reference, is it quite a good place to clock in some hours.
Now to scab money off my mother to buy gorgeous office clothes! 4 years ago

RoseIt will be difficult

to discuss and handle certain matters in a professional way, e.g. the question of whether I need to wear long-sleeve shirts and the possibility of continuing daytime therapy sessions.

TMI, yeah yeah. 5 years ago


They didn’t get back to me.
BUT it’s okay, because I want to work somewhere where I don’t need to wear make-up.
I’ve been going on about Woolworths for months but if I apply straight after exams (13th November) so as to beat the Christmas rush, I’ll never have another school holiday again! D: 5 years ago

My dream workplace!

Well, I’ve been on first name terms with the main sales assistant for a while now, and now that my HSC is over for the time-being, she said she’d write me a recommendation.

I’ll put my resume and application in tomorrow.

Hope! 6 years ago
