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.

OdiHow to learn!

Hi guys!

I tried couple of online apps and I found this application really useful.

They have an app for Google Chrome. You can install the app and start practising.
Highly recommended. 19 months ago


Odi10 Fingers Typing

Since when getting familiar with computers I didn’t learn it in a proper way no I am not able to type with 10 fingers without looking at the keyboard.
I am a computer science student and I spent lots of my time in front of my laptop and it doesn’t look professional at all when you look at the keyboard while typing.
So, that’s why I am here. 19 months ago

quitequirkfulBasically got it!

We all have good days and bad days, but for a while now I have been able to type without looking at my hands, so I think I’ve finally got it! When I’m really tired it’s harder, but for the most part, I can do it. I still sort of glance down every once in a while out of habit, but if I force myself to look at the screen I’m still fine :) Yay! 3 years ago
