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.

I’m not making progress. Women just don’t seem interested in me. But now, it does not really affect me anymore (I’m not saying this with resent). Women are not attracted to me, I just have to accept it. Out of the millions out there, it’s very likely that one I like is going to be attracted to me one day.

Take some time for yourself. 2 years ago

You are the master, not the victim.

I wrote a short essay on how I quit. Look it through my profile, it will help you make a plan for when you are ready to quit. it’s important to plan ahead, so that you have recourse to your strategies when feeling the urge to smoke. 2 years ago

People gossip about you because you respond in the way they expect you to. With time you will learn to be less reactive and trust your own self more. There is no stress, really. Be easy on yourself. In time you’ll see there really is no need to seek the approval of others who you probably don’t really give a damn about anyway, and speaking your mind and standing for your own won’t seem as risky. Wishing you the best.

Well, okay. I’m not sure what to think about this anymore..

I’m not sure I could even express the way I feel about it anymore.
It has so not worked out for me, I just can’t believe it.

I try to focus on other things but it creeps me.
It’s painful just thinking about it.

Basically, I feel rejected by anything desirable. 2 years ago

I can have conversations now, with difficulty but I’m one step closer to fluency. I listen to audiobooks and tv shows. I can follow along quite well. Not bad, I guess for someone who learned the language by himself at home. I’ve started learning my fourth language now. 2 years ago

I’ve been learning my third language (spanish), part time, these past 2 years and I’m now to the point where I can engage in conversations (although with difficulty). So I’m thinkin’ it would be time to begin learning my fourth. I wanted to learn german or chinese mandarin, but I’m still unsure as to which to pick. I’m thinking mandarin is the most useful since so much people speak it but I’ll see.. 2 years ago

Seriously, throw them away. It’s empowering to be able to get rid of what we feel like holding on to. 2 years ago

Seriously, is this possible at all? Can it happen? 2 years ago

Not really tryin’ anymore. I don’t know if I care anymore, I prefer to take the risk of never finding someone than feeling sorry for myself. 2 years ago

I have been taking a major step forward on this goal and made significant progress. 2 years ago

I’m still getting better. I’ve started to watch tv shows in spanish and although I don’t understand everything I do pick up a lot. 2 years ago

Can you tell me about the pain level with the wrist? thank you.

No problem, I’m glad I could help :) 2 years ago

Also, I’d suggest seeking out people online who speak spanish to chat over skype. That’s a really good way to improve. There are websites done exactly for this purpose (language exchanges)

try searching for “language exchange skype” 2 years ago


philtremUntitled

Travel to Latin America (or Spain if you can afford it), or look for student exchange programs.

edit:

and if you want some more ressources:

Bueno Entonces spanish learning DVD series
(it’s spanish level 1 and 2)

Rosetta Stone language learning software (it has 5 or 6 levels)

Lomastv.com (10$ a month, just check it out)

You can ask if you want more…... 2 years ago

I am trying to meet girls now. I’m not having much success and feeling like a failure at times, but I’m using the same strategy I use when I want to succeed with anything: I follow through despite the way it feels. 2 years ago
