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 been trying to

figure this out for years now. My problem is that I’m interested in so many things so it’s hard to narrow down what exactly I want to study. I have toyed with the idea of doing a Dip Ed, which when combined with my current degree in Science (chemistry and oceanography) would allow me to teach science at a high school level. I have also toyed with the idea of doing my masters – possibly in project management – a topic in which I haven’t done any formal study previously, but which my current job has given me the background to do and will entirely fund. Both of these would be relatively easy to organise and fund (as my job would largely pay for both) but I don’t know if it’s what I WANT to do. My real interests actually sit in an area a thousands miles away from what I’m currently doing. The subjects of Palaeontology, Genetics, Earth Tectonics, Evolution and Volcanic Activity really facinate me. My issue is that I have no idea how to go about doing this. Last night I researched universities that teach earth science and they are few and far between. The ones that allow you to learn through distance education are even more rare! I did find one though which could be a potential option. I’m going to enquire soon and see if I can get a bit more information.
