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.

amblerLessons are everywhere

All I have to do is recognize opportunities and claim as my own any knowledge that I discover. Whether I absorb all the knowledge I am seeking the first time or have to repeat lessons occasionally to retain info, I just keep learning and growing from experiences and the lessons of life. 9 months ago

darkrose132Never ever stop learning.

After O levels, I’m going to study. Every day. I’m going to catch up on high school physics and I’m going to take it for A levels and I’m going to get an A*. I have to.

Physics is very interesting even though I’m one of those people who cannot grasp the concepts easily without help from other people or studying for days (and even then, it might slip out my mind if I don’t constantly revise on it.) I may not be as smart as the next person, and I’m definitely not cut out for physics, but I want to know and learn more.

When I do understand it, it fills me with happiness (or more precisely temporary endorphins when I’m able to explain a concept and understand clearly). I know a little bit more about how the world works and I am a bit more enlightened. And then I feel more motivated to study. 13 months ago
