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.

toomuchcoffeetranstional specialist

I am planning on seeing a transtinal specialist in the next few weeks. I’m really confused on what I want. I’m feeling better physically, and back on track. I want to figure out my next step.

I want to have a higher paying job, a job I enjoy, a job I’m good at . A job with people who are positive and enjoyable. I don’t want to be overly stressed out. I want to figure out if it’s EAst coast or West coast. I don’t know!!!!!!

It’s pretty expensive, but my friend swears by it. I’ll figur eit out. 2 years ago

toomuchcoffeeonto the 2nd interview!

Had a short phone interview yesterday for a state job. I made it to the next round. I have to do a persuasive interview. bleh. the job is a lot about presentations, but this is opporutnity to do some amazing state and national work. Many doors will be open if I do well in this job. the interview is on Thursday.

I keep reminding myself that this is why I went to grad school. I did all of this in grad school. I can do more.

If i do get the job I get to work with at least 2 wonderful people I’ve met before. They would be awesome mentors.

I know my career doesn’t stop , even if I get this job. I want to eventually work on a national level. We’ll see.

If I get the job I’ll move back to my last place, which would be nice. It’s about an hour away. Hopefully, I can rent the same place I did last time. I love that house.

If I don’t get the job, my decision to move back east opens up again. We’ll see.

I drove down last weekend to just find the place. I think I will spand some time down there this weekend.

Tonight I relax. I’ll work in the presentation over the weekend. 2 years ago

toomuchcoffeeshort phone interview tomorrow. for a GOOD job.

I think they are just vetting folks on the first round, Checking in to see if we have what it takes. All I really need to do is not sound like an idiot . Remeber the facts and not ramble on and on. We’ll see.

If this doesn’t work out, I’m going to start applying out of state again.

Yikes! 2 years ago


Got a job offer today. The university job, but the salary was too low.. I think I handled it ok. After I interviewd for this job, I saw the “supervisor ” of this job open. (actually a state job).

As I declined the job, I mentioned that I applied for the state job (which would work with the same folks, just better salary, more speonsiblity). The adminstrator was very positive and encouraging and was pretty we’d meet again. I HOPE so! I hope I get an interview .

We’ll see.

Hard day at my regular job. almost just said yes to the job offer, 2 years ago


i think the university job check my backgroundfor the job. It’s a good job, but the payscale doesn’t bring me any hirer than I am now.

But I get free tuition for classess and I get to set my self up to getting a doctorate from folks in the field.

I’d be leaving behind job with some opportunities, from that one grant, but also leaving behind a staff that is drving me crazy.

I need to see how much they will offer me for this job.

I ‘ve also applied for a position that is a step up, I like that salary. I will have to talk wit these folks. 2 years ago


I apply for the job in DC that regional director that is based in DC but connectioned to WA State.

I apply for the curriculum job in VA.
I also apply for the WA State job.

I had the interview last week for the position. ithin I was was a strong candidate and it inspirec me. I do need to go to the next level in saleary. I have a Masters Degree for goodness sake. I’m ready forthe adventure. I’m not going to go small just yet. I’m going big. The small will be there when I’m ready.

I'm at the end of mhy rope with my current job. It's not bad, but not inspiring either.  Not at the top of my potential. I'm ready.
tomrrow. I bring my computer with me. I head to church, then starbucks to do the resume etc. or ?, I do my best when I"m out of thehouse.

I’m so done with living Like this. I’m ready for something new and getting paid more.

the one thing to think about is that I could actaully be offered the job I interviewed with this week. It’s an even trade. The psoitive thing is that it’s through the U and I can take classes and I can get hooked up with ECE phd stuff. that would be exciting. And that what I need. 2 years ago
