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.

My dad owns a shop and I get to drive the semi’s when I help out. It’s a blast! The summer truck driving jobs pay well too!

debpatterson49Becoming a truck driver

I have my CDL and now am trying to get a job and further training to be a professional driver. In driving school I only got 120 hours of actual driving. I need much more. I have difficulty with shifting the gears. When I try to do a road test I seem to freeze and fail. I just need to be tutored and coached more and I can’t seem to find anyone that will do this. All the trucking companies only want to make money, of course, but they really aren’t interested in the training part although that is what they advertise. If anyone knows where I can get practice driving a tractor trailer rig I would be very greatful. I love driving a truck. I think I would be very good at it after I get more practice. 17 months ago
