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.

driver license

I drive since I’m 16, but haven’t my license yet (I’m currently 22 :p )


Before you get caught...

go and get your license..bleh…I sound like my mom…Hahahaha…But seriously you should start on this. I think you will enjoy the challenge and the feeling of success you’ll get once you’ve passed the test.

Start with the first step of getting the application form (if your licensing dept requires this) and you’ll be on a roll. Hopefully.

Good luck!

sounds like my mom too.. ! I’m working on this goal since April ;)
Thanks for your encouragement :)

PS: In Belgium you need to pass a first theoretical exam, after six months you can try the manual (real driving) exam.

I see...

So did you already get the theoretical exam? If you did, how did it go?

You motivated me :)

Yes :) I’ve done my theoretical. It was not so difficult, if you study a bit you normally succeed.
I think about taking some courses of driving, maybe 2 hours. So I can see if I’m ready to do the practical exam ^ ^

Go for it!

I don’t drive but I’m equally envious and proud of people who do. So, go, go, go for it!!! Mark the pertinent dates on your calendar so you won’t forget (urgghhh…mommy-mode. sorry!)

Good luck and hope you tick this goal off your list soon =)

ghammatx has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
