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.

I'm not finished learning... but I've done this.

Well, I’m not finished learning… but I do feel that I’m in the zone of never stop learning. I’ve always loved learning new things and still have lots to learn but I guess that’s how I know I’ve made it. I’ll probably go to University someday even though I’m 33 now. Just finished 5 certificate programs with in the last year. Many of them over lapped so I don’t know I could match this in later years but I have learned a lot in the last year… and I’m starting to take topics I’ve already covered in other courses so I know that I’ve reached a level of some kind. Taking classes is one way to keep learning new things. I find that taking extension type classes and continuing education classes is a good way to keep learning and you’ll probably learn more from your experienced class mate then the teacher… which leads me to say, that one can learn a lot just by listening to friends and family. This might be one what to do and what not to do – If you have reached this level of Never Stop learning. I guess its a state of mind.

? NEVER ? - stop learning:

How am I going to get this one done?

Any suggestions?
