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.

learn how to drive (read all 2 entries…)
2nd step

june 30 – enrolled and started my first driving class. driving instructor is a real character – long hair and more bling on him than a jewelry store. i was taken aback and i thought “can i trust this guy with my life???” he looks more like a drug dealer than a respectable driving instructor (harsh yet true) but my brother swears he’s really good and he speaks 6 languages (which, for some reason, reassures me a bit) ... soooo… we’ll see.


All the best!!

and yeah make sure your instructor lets you get the control soon enough!! the ideal wau would be do learn in low traffic zones so you get the hang of the vehicle and then venture out to high traffic!

etmois has gotten 1 cheer on this entry.


I want to:
