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.

Many of the important things that depends on our memory. Right thing that need to be done at right time. At the same time some unnecessary things that we must forget. It it should not be remind us. So we need to find the right way to improve our memory. So i want to do that. 2 years ago

sekhmet1970One thing at a time

Science is proving that our ‘always on’ culture with so many distractions is affecting the way our brains are wired. I used to pride myself on being able to multitask but this is evolving into ADD (I am not kidding!). Sooo to help my memory, concentration and focus, my mantra needs to be one thing at a time! No TV/reading/laptop/phone/facebook at the same time – each activity whether work or pleasure needs to be given undivided attention (even if only for 30 mins!) 2 years ago

jaybestPi memorised up to 100 places

I have been getting really familiar with the Major memory system, and that has been awesome.

I can memorise pi up to 100 places, and have memorised a lot of my key phone numbers, account numbers and credit card details etc.

It’s been fun and really helpful. 2 years ago

Χαράλαμπος ΜαραπίδηςAction plan

I am going to work on this intensively for 1 month and then just keep exercising my memory, on a lower basis and scale.

I will use the web to read (how-to) articles and stuff to help me improve my memory and also (e)books on this subject.

from a quick google/hackernews search:

I have not read these yet, I leave them here for you if you might be interested, and for me, to read tomorrow. Also tomorrow, I will make a list of books that I will read on this subject. That’s it for now. GO GO GO! 3 years ago

tribute_to_erasmusMemory palace

I came across this nifty, century-old, little trick for remember lists of items or other such lists by visualizing them each in a room of my house and adding an extraordinary but visual story to each.

here’s the link: 3 years ago


Now that I’m out of school, I feel a lot less reticent to continued learning; I’ve picked up a number of little activities I’d shied away from due to mental exhaustion, but now that I’m rested and taking things at my own pace, I’m finding that my brain is a lot more receptive to information that I gave it credit for. I’m glad that ability was not lost forever. Sometimes, all you need is a break. Nevertheless, I still plan on improving it measurably and hope to report back on this one soon 3 years ago
