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.

Learn Perfect Pitch

I believe…

Sorry if a little bit long my post but please read. I believe that perfect pitch is learned. I don’t believe is something only a “special” group of people have and we cant. I mean NOBODY is born knowing which color is which not with pitch is which. Absolute Pitch is a cognitive function. These people don’t have “super ears” nor theirs is different of other people. Absolute pitch is more how the brain processes tones and pitches. And i believe we can learn to think that way. We se read and we know is red. Why isn’t what a “Absolute Color” o whatever skill that only “special” people can do? Is because everybody learn the colors. Same can happen with the thing of perfect pitch. Is all i n our head. The way we associate things. I’m gonna LEARN and make it something NATURAL for me!! and i want people to think that way and dont let people who claim that you cant learn it. or that if you learn it is not useful because is not natural. No body is born playing an instrument, speaking, even recognizing ANYTHING. We learn EVERYTHING one way of another; Consciously or not and make it part of us until t becomes NATURAL!! So im gonna make perfect pitch something natural for me and teach those who claim they have something nobody possesses that we can make it to!!! Thanks!!


I want to:
