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 learned something that when i decided to take a master degree, i thought it will be hard and i should study hard well i will not lie to you,

it’s hard but while you do something hard don’t forget to have fun just don’t look miserable ever,

you do this because you want that not any one else wanted so be happy because you challenged yourself of doing something hard and fun at the same time. :D 8 months ago

thabs88Getting Started

So, after trying to make a brief escape from the academic world I am back. It seems, I just never seem to gather a high enough magnitude escape velocity to get myself out of this place or some divine being wants me to continue pursuing this Astrophysics thing. Whatever it is, I’ll continue to push on with something I have great passion for and see where it takes me. 10 months ago

ZijueToo many interests!

I did my undergraduate degree in Italian with Linguistics and I’ve been hoping to do a master’s degree in Linguistics. I have so many different interests though, and I wish I felt more confident in my choices. I always feel like there are loads of people who know more than me, but my interests cut across different fields. I like to bring together work from different areas into a coherent whole, rather than losing myself in one project, so I can no longer see the broader context.

I definitely want to do this, but it is certainly not easy to narrow down my interests! 5 years ago
