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 have an unmitigated interest in the trades

Biggest goals right now are:

- Have a woodwork project every year
- Learn basic car mechanics


I learned how to check the pressure of tires today, where they should be, and how to pump them up. Nothing too fancy. =)


Well, I took my driver’s test today and passed. =) I’m not sure where else to put this, but the information is sort of relevant. I’ve been on my learners for a couple years now and it was about to expire. So now I’m all licensed up and have my step-mom’s old car to use when needed. I’m sure it will open me up to a whole new bunch of opportunities to learn about cars.

Any suggestions about things I should learn how to do (whether it be maintenance related or repair oriented).

Step One

My step mom’s car broke down so my dad decided this is where I would start lesson one. And what a lesson! We ended up changing the battery, alternater, and the solenoid (the real problem) that order. It’s a 17 year old Ford Tempo so….it was time for a change anyway but…what I took away from it all most is ‘even though dad swares he knows what he’s doing, the mechanic always knows better’ =) But I did learn how to replace all those things and the electrical circut of a car. So I guess it was worth it .

MyImaginaryWorld has gotten 21 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
