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.

quampuranitesList of Six

In a google search of top languages to learn, I ran across an article titled Dr. Arguelles’ Six Most Important Lanugages. In this blog post, it is argued that important languages to learn are relative to the indiviudal and consist of the following:
1. Classical Languages of one’s own culture
2. Major living languages of one’s broader culture
3. The international language
4. Exotic languages

For me personally, this means learning to read Latin and Ancient Greek. Or maybe I’ll skip Greek and learn Old English. Major living languages of my broader culture in the western hemisphere are Spanish and Portugese. By birth, I already speak the international language, but perhaps Chinese, Russian, Hindi, Japanese or French or German could be added in. Exotic languages could be anything, but for me, it would be strategically vital languages in the field of medicine, or the armed forces, as I am serving in the military. This could be Dari, Pashto, Arabic for DoD purposes, or Swahili, Indonesian, or Hebrew just because.

I suppose its time for a decision. After taking an hour to write this and based on what I have previously studied, I will narrow down to six (okay, seven… O KAY, eight) Latin, Ancient Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Hindi, and Indonesian. These will be my primary focus.

I know I’ll have intellectual wanderlust, so any other languages I wish to temporarily delve into will have to consist only of learning travel worthy phrases. Travel is another one of my 43things. 2 years ago
