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 another language
Have always wanted to learn another language

will be doing this with rosetta stone, just gotta do it gradually, but consistently. Maybe I have too many other goals?

strengthen the relationships I already have
I can be quite individual, but want to appreciate the people around me

Overseas and want to maintain all my relationships from back home and over here.

Never stop learning
Never stop learning! There are so many things I want to know, but need to organise them

I drive alot for my job and I have recently discovered podcasts of lectures that will allow me to structure my learning. But now have gone through lecture series in history and maths, but really want to structure it and write notes on each. Because apparently if you write notes on something you learnt at stages after, the retention rate is much much higher.
