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.

post lyrics to songs that get stuck in my head (read all 78 entries…)
For several mornings now,

I have awakened with this song in my head. I mean literally, before i even open my eyes, there it is. Now i’m wondering whether someone is singing it to me in my sleep, just so this song will stalk me all day!

Clint Eastwood

I ain’t happy. I’m feeling glad.
I got sunshine in a bag.
I’m useless, but not for long.
The future is coming on.

I ain’t happy. I’m feeling glad.
I got sunshine in a bag.
I’m useless, but not for long.
The future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on,
It’s coming on, it’s coming on.

Yeah, ha ha.
Finally someone let me out of my cage.
Now time for me is nothing ‘cause I’m counting no age.
No, I couldn’t be there. No, you shouldn’t be scared.
I’m good at repairs and I’m under each snare.
Intangible, bet you didn’t think, so I command you to.
Panoramic view, look I’ll make it all manageable.
Pick and choose, sit and lose, all you different crews.
Chicks and dudes, who you think is really kicking tunes?
Picture you getting down in a picture tube,
Like you lit the fuse.
You think it’s fictional? Mystical, maybe.
Spiritual hero who appears in you to clear your view when you’re too crazy.
Lifeless, to those the definition for what life is.
Priceless to you because I put you on the hype shit.
You like it? Gun smoking, righteous, with one token psychic
Among those, possess you with one go.

I ain’t happy. I’m feeling glad.
I got sunshine in a bag.
I’m useless, but not for long.
The future is coming on.

I ain’t happy. I’m feeling glad.

The essence, the basics, without it, you make it.
Allow me to make this childlike in nature.
Rhythm, you have it or you don’t, that’s a fallacy.
I’m in them, every sprouting tree, every child apiece,
Every cloud at sea, you see with your eye.
You see destruction and demise, corruption in disguise,
From this fucking enterprise, now I’m sucking to your lies
Through Russel, not his muscles, but percussion he provides
With me as a guide.
Y’all can see me now ‘cause you don’t see with your eye.
You perceive with your mind. That’s the inner.
So I’m-a stick around with Russ and be a mentor,
Bust a few rhymes so motherfuckers remember
Where the thought is. I brought all this
So you can survive when law is lawless.
Feelings, sensations that you thought was dead.
No squealing, remember that it’s all in your head.

I ain’t happy. I’m feeling glad.
I got sunshine in a bag.
I’m useless, but not for long.
The future is coming on.

I ain’t happy. I’m feeling glad.
I got sunshine in a bag.
I’m useless, but not for long.
My future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on.
My future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on.
My future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on.
My future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on.
My future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on.
My future is coming on.
It’s coming on, it’s coming on.
My future
