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.

Finally began doing this. I enjoyed teaching. I began with two training sessions for new recruits to a company locally. I think the experience will be very helpful for my career in grad school.

Just make sure why you want to go to grad school. Don’t apply for the heck of it. I worked in the industry for about 4 years before I made up my mind that I want to go for a research program.

Ideally, you should go to grad school ONLY if you want a PhD.

All done

I forgot to add finally that I am completely finished with this work. I even took the GATE (Graduate Apptitude Test in Engineering) this year to see where I stand in India. Let me see what the results are like.

Finally this goal is done.
