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.

philosopherprinceLearned 900 Phrases by Listening to Audiotapes and Writing Out the Words

I recently came across Pimsleur Japanese. They claim that you can learn all the words with just 30 minutes a day. It’s not true, but the tapes help.

I started by getting the full 90 lessons, which I’m finished with the first 40 of them. I open up Google Translate, and a program called Japanese Word Processor. It write out the phrases to not only learn how to say the words, but read them too. If there’s a new phrase I write it down.

There’s a Japanese society in town, and I was able to practice a little. The practice gets you passed the point of learning a language where you stutter, forget words, and get nervous. It’s not easy, and I have to fight for every inch of progress, but it’s working isn’t it? 3 months ago
