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.

ajkcCommunity Bicycle Network

I’m enrolled in, and have completed 1 class, three more to go. The course instructor is a stand up guy, and he’s the lead mechanic at the community bicycle network here in the city. I’m going to help bike sauce make their move, and maybe I’ll ask about CBN’s move, that way I can get pieces of a bike at a discount and build it at their shop! 4 months ago


ajkcIT, HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript, Drupal

While attending GB, I could use the material I’m learning to further develop IT proficiency with the programming languages mentioned.
But, I dont want to over do it. One thing at a time. 5 months ago


ajkcObstacles

Some obstacles I foresee are similar to mathematics. Emotional issues. Ie. not earning/working full time right away, and the associated negative/distracting thoughts. [43Things | Working PT | Short Course] Family, and their needs/wants for me? [NA] Eugene. Could I explain this to him? [Yes] Timing, will my desire for this goals fade as time passes, and will I still be focused on it when Im eligible for taking the credit course? [43Things | Practical | STJB] 5 months ago


ajkcThis is kinda funny..

But, I like to bake. Milanos, the Art / Science of it is fun too me, a very hands on experience! Maybe grounding I dont know, but my mom always enjoyed baking and called it her meditation. Anyway, if I take the course, I’m only obliged to complete %40 of the work load at a time, can earn as much income as I can, without having income deducted. And, upon completion, OSAP pays 1/2 of my over all tuition! This seems like a terrific entry point for me. would always be an abundance of bread around, could work at St.Johns Bakery! I think two classes in the Baking and Pastry Arts cert. are wine appreciation, and chocolate? 5 months ago


ajkcTopic and Technology

I enjoy the colored illustrations, and the explanation for the topic. It seems to go very well with HTML5/CSS languages, which i’m eagar to learn and master. This could also be useful as a stand alone app. both to aid in my own learning, and as a tool for better understanding the material by a younger audience. 5 months ago

ajkcReasoning

There are several valid reasons for Achieving this goal. From Baking, to Computer Programming, and Trade Craft to Plastic Molding Injection, Math is the first the requirement. If you master mathematics, you master the world around you. Finance, nutrition, engineering..Problem solving! You name it, math’s in it. Even film..timing, symmetry these in many ways are the abstract science of numbers and space It doesn’t take long, and opens way more many doors. 5 months ago


ajkc100 Hours

I just learnt another valuable lesson, I remembered a comment Fr.Jeffery made about learning new material. That it takes approximately 100 hours to learn a new subject, 10,000 hours to Master the Material! I remembered this, as I was making a recent entry, and noticed on the sidebar the tagging options (only available upon completion, and entries). Working the last two hours has opened this advantage up too me. I should note to track my time/goals, and watch for the 100 hour goal line..10,000!? 5 months ago

ajkcReasoning

i’d like to build a nice dataset, of manufactures, and methods. Of, Precision Molding in Toronto (esp. Vaughn and Concord). It gives me the opportunity to survey the landscape, and learn about both the industry, and Drupal. 5 months ago


ajkcMy 43Things.com

It’s been a while since I’ve used the service. It’s always a very refreshing experience when I do. Putting my goals down on digital, really aids in both organizing priorities, and respective language. I learned today, for example, that instead of using the words, ‘Take’, ‘Get’, to use more clearly defined words like, ‘Complete’, ‘Achieve’, ‘Build’, ‘Change’. To me this is vitally important because it maps out the direction i’ll want to take from the start. 5 months ago

ajkcHow to Drive Free Cars for LIFE!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKyV8CTHeJ0

$450/month turns a $1500 car into an $11,000 car in 20 months.
$450/month in a mutual fund, at %12, turns into $32,000 in 52 months. That equals, a new $14,000 to $18,000 car every five years for life! Interest. Further, investing $475 in a good mutual fund, equal over $100,000 in ten years, $470,000 in twenty years, and $1.6 million in 30 years, and in 40 years.. $5,588,532. 5 months ago
