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.

Become a modern day Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci was quite the man. He was an artist, an inventor, a counselor to kings and queens. His was a bright and brilliant mind. He had a passion for knowledge fueled by an insatiable curiousity.

I want to know know how he studies especially how he the way he remembers things, the way he use his brain to make such many creative things, all u got any idea for this?

It's all about developing curiousity.

Really, when you’re curious, you have a passion to find out and retain the truth. Developing curiousity is key. I keep a journal, and I write down questions that I have that I wonder about, and then I work at finding the answers. At first it went slowly, but now I’m constantly thinking and challenging my way of thinking.

So what kinds of questions are you currently looking for the answers to? I’m curious to find out what you’re curious about! ;)

The truth about dividing by zero...

I guess I want to know things like, what is it that turns a bunch of atoms and molecules into an organized, living being? Could it ever be possible to feel another persons feelings? What lies beyond the edge of infinity? What types of applications are there in accoustic waves and their respective energies? Why does toast always fall peanut butter side down???—I already know why, but seriously…WHY?

You sound like a grad student ;)

Have you considered going back to college for a degree in physics or biochemistry? Or maybe even philosophy! It seems like you’d at least have a forum to discuss questions like these without making every one around you get a headache from thinking too hard.

erichtoebe has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
