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.

Donderjaeger1.4.2012 slacking off

Haven’t been doing much about this since I stopped going to physio, since I used to do it there. Maybe I should start taking it to work… 2 years ago

DonderjaegerA good start

My teacher marked the work done so far (40 or 50 pages) and told me not to bother with lessons until I hit an obstacle, as I obviously have a good grasp of the material so far. :c)

Did a bit of work in Barbara Wharram’s book in the interim, which is more demanding. 2 years ago

Donderjaegerworkbook part 2

I’ve been pretty good about doing the exercises in the workbook, mostly during dead time, like when I’m at physio. Making steady progress. :c) 2 years ago

Donderjaegerworkbook part 1

Received my new workbook from my teacher on Sunday, and am going through it and completing the exercises. Nothing new so far, but because it’s a piano book, I’m gaining greater familiarity with the bass clef. (Men’s vocal parts are usually written an octave higher than sung, on the treble clef, for ease of reading.)

Also did some reading in another theory workbook at physio recently; good use of otherwise dead time. Major and minor scales, keys, and modes. 2 years ago

Donderjaeger"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"

I’m ready to move forward on this goal, and the pianist of one of my groups is going to give me lessons. I will need her help to make the endless scales and modes relevant!! :c) 2 years ago
