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.

iamevoxus there is freedom in letting go

learn to speak Portuguese (read all 31 entries…)
ive re-opened

this goal, as i want to try and work on this.

im planning on trying to listen to some language cds i have, as well as listening to portuguese music, watching movies in portuguese. i might even read in portuguese, if i can find a interesting book somewhere. or maybe just read online on portuguese sites. also will ask the folks to talk to me as much as possible in portuguese and to explain things to me when i dont understand or how to say things, etc. i also work with lots of portuguese and brazillian people so i may as well ask them to teach me stuff when i get a chance.

im also looking into some online language learning sites, see what i can find to help with this.

ive tried on and off over the years to learn it but its never stuck with me. going to try again this time. im a bit embarressed that i cant speak the language of my heritage or that i cant conversate with some family members and relatives.

i would love to one day be fluent. but lets jsut try and give this ago again and take our time with it. baby steps.
