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.

Capital Area School Development Association (CASDA) Scholars’ Recognition Program “Most Influential Teacher” 2007. 7 years ago

robeartoeIt's all about the students

Winning the Award for Excellence in teaching from the University of Toronto was a gratifying experience. It hasn’t really helped me professionally and I find that ironic.

The reason for the win had to do with making them stretch, coaching students excel, recognizing teching is about performance and knowledge transfer and lastly helping the school achieve some of it’s goals. 9 years ago

James CronenThis will come with time...

This isn’t so much a goal as an aspiration. I hope to someday be good enough at my craft that I feel like I can warp young minds for the better. Although awards are arbitrarily given, this is a fairly good indicator as to how I rank with my peers.

Life isn’t a competition, but, well, it is. If you can excel against your fellow man, you must be doing something right. 9 years ago
