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.

evilhomestereoThis is one of my longest standing goals

Shrugged off the abysmal mediocrity of a job I’ve hated for nearly all five years I was there to be a magazine editor. Just celebrated the one-month mark of my new gig and am pretty happy that I’ve finally finally FINALLY found something new and far less awful than The Crappiest Place in Earth. 4 months ago

I was let go from my previous job due to drastic cut-downs/profitbility issues. I knew this would happen long beforehand and I was financially prepared so not really worried. I also had a nice manager/company owner who let me take a lot of time during work (since there was so little to do) to apply for jobs and go to interviews.
I went to a several interviews and in the end I landed a job that seems tough, fun, and better paid than previous. Feels good but also overwhelming/a bit scary. But mostly good :-) 4 months ago
