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.

Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip - You Will See Me

You are my new inspiration, my muse, and I mean that not as a compliment
I will use you to cruise through any writers block
Any lazy days when a glazed gaze invades my minds cave of creativity I will think of you
And what you did to me
I will take negativity and make it inspire me
I was not a book from a library
As I stand here alone, I declare ‘I was not a loan’
To be picked up and dropped off at a later date
And you barely even made my spine bend
Just skim through some of the interesting bits then skip to the end The notes you left in my margins turned from scribbles to scars but…here’s the best part
You didn’t even realize you were reading the first draft of a best seller
The manuscript of a future Nobel prize winner
This book you discarded as a pamphlet
Will ignite shit
I will work ten times harder than before
I will create art
I will create beauty
I will create so many things that you can’t ignore
But I will not do them in your name
I will not shout you from the rooftops
I will tap your name out in Morse code on my outer thigh
As I casually except plaudits from on high
I will not try to win you back
I do not want you back
I just want to show you
I just need to show you what you fucking walked away from
I will achieve all my goals tenfold
I will achieve your goals too: casually
I will have happiness and joy in my life
I will fall in love; husband, child and wife
I will shine brighter than I could ever have dreamed to be

And you will see me. And you will see me.

I will make rivers run red in your anonymity
The screams of nations will echo our affinity
My raft will be relentless
My path of destruction will be momentously momentous
I will change the face of history
And paint it in my likeness
And I will LIKE this
I will destroy everything that you hold dear
By simply destroying everything: far and near
My footsteps will be impossible not to hear
I will watch you from afar, and taste each tear
I will wipe out entire races
I will erase faiths of this place with great haste and no graces
This world will become my play thing
Embracing my ways, and then just breaking
I will burn this entire world to the ground
I will leave a mark greater, than any have ever left before
I will lay waste by land, air and sea

And you will see me. And you will see me.
