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.

Heart Of A Champion

I can feel the pressure coming down on me people say that im not destined to suceed but i have the faith i need to carry on and i will find the strength in me to prove them wrong it isnt for the thrill it isnt for the prize its all about a fight to stay alive knowing that the dream can survive when you’re out there on the edge and the odds you face are life and death you’ve got to have the heart of a champion when your time is running out andeverybody sees youre going down you’ve got to have a heart of a champion when your backs against the wall and your rival thinks your gonna fall you’ve got to have a heart of a champion come on now listen i have been through thick and thin and every vice standing in the winners circle has its price i have learned to fight the good fight to the end and if i had to i would do it all again and when the sun goes down i wont fear the night i wikeep my head towards the sky knowing that the lord is on my side-chours-
heart of a champion come on heart of a champion heart of a champion and when the darkness falls i wont fear the night i will keep my head toward the sky knowing that the lord is on my side your out there on the edge and the odds you face are life and death you got to have a heart of a champion when your time is running out everybody sees your going down got to have a heart of a champion when your backs against the wall and your rival thinks your gonna fall you go to have a heart of a champion yeah heart of a champion.

The Champion

In the vast expanse of a timeless place,
Where silence ruled the outer space,
Ominously, towering it stood,
The symbol of a spirit war
Between the one name Lucifer,
And the Morning Star, The ultimate of good.

Enveloped by a trillion planets,
Clean as lightning and hard as granite,
A cosmic coliseum would host the end
Of the war between the lord of sin and death,
And the Omnipotent Creator of man’s first breath,
Who will decide who forever will be the Champion.

The audience for the ‘Fight of the Ages’ was assembled and in place.
The angels came in splendor from a star.
The saints that had gone before were there: Jeremiah, Enoch, Job.
They were singing the Song of Zion on David’s harp.

The demons arrived, offensive and vile, cursing and blaspheming God.
Followed by their ‘trophies’ dead and gone.
Hitler, Napoleon, Pharaoh, Capone,
Tormented and vexed and grieved.
Waiting for their judgment From the Throne.

Then a chill swept through the mammoth crowd and the demons squealed with glee,
as a sordid, vulgar, repulsive essence was felt.
Arrogantly prancing, hands held high, draped in a sparkling shroud
Trolled by demons, Satan ascended from Hell.

Then Satan cringed, the sinners groaned!
The demons reeled in pain as a swell of power like silent thunder rolled
With a surge of light beyond intense, illuminating the universe,
In resplendent glory appeared the Son of God.

Then a Persona, yes, Extraordinaire appeared in center ring.
God the Father will oversee the duel.
Opening the Book of Life, each grandstand hushed in awe as
majestically He said,
Now here’s the rules. He’ll be wounded for their transgressions,
bruised for iniquities
When He said, By His stripes they’re healed, the devil shook!
He screamed, Sickness is my specialty. I hate that healing junk!
God said, You shut your face, I wrote the book!
Then the Father looked at His only Son and said,
You know the rules.
Your blood will cleanse their sins and calm their fears.
Then He pointed His finger at Satan and said,
And I know you know the rules.
You’ve been twisting them to deceive My people for years.
Satan screamed, I’ll kill you Christ! You’ll never win this fight!
The demons wheezed, That’s right, there ain’t no way.
Satan jeered, You’re dead meat, Jesus, I’m gonna bust you UP tonight!
Jesus said, Go ahead, make my day!
The bell rang, the crowd cheered, the fight was on,
And the devil leaped in fury.
With all his evil tricks he came undone.
He threw his jabs of hate and lust.
A stab of pride and envy but the hand that knew no sin blocked every one.

Forty days and nights they fought, and Satan couldn’t touch Him.
Now the final blow saved for the final round.
Prophetically Christ’s hands came down
And Satan struck in vengeance!
The blow of death felled Jesus to the ground.

The devils roared in victory!
The saints shocked and perplexed as wounds appeared upon His hands and feet.
Then Satan kicked Him in His side, and blood and water flowed.
And they waited for the 10 count of defeat.

God the Father turned His head,
His tears announcing Christ was dead!
The 10 count would proclaim the battle’s end.
Then Satan trembled through his sweat in unexpected horror, yet…
As God started to count by saying,
Hey wait a minute, God… ...9… Stop! You’re counting wrong…
His eyes are moving…
His fingers are twitching…
Where’s all this Light coming from?
He’s alive!
Oh – nooooo!
And yet,
He has won!
He has won!
He’s alive forevermore!
He is risen, He is Lord,
He has won!
He has won!
He’s alive forevermore,
He is risen!
He is Lord!

Proclaim the news in every tongue,
Through endless ages and beyond
Let it be voiced from mountains loud and strong
Captivity has been set free, salvation bought for you and me
‘Cause Satan is defeated,
And Jesus is The Champion

Arise, My Love
by Newsong

Not a word was heard
at the tomb that day.
Just shuffling of soldiers feet
as they guarded the grave.
One day, two days,
three days had past.
Could it be that Jesus
breathed His last?

Could it be that His Father
had forsaken him?
Turned his back on his son
dispising our sin.
All hell seemed to whisper
‘Just forget Him, He’s dead.’
Then the Father looked down
to his son and he said..

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
has a hold on you
No more death’s sting
No more suffering
Arise…Arise…my love.

The Earth trembled
and the tomb began to shake,
and like lightening
from Heaven the stone was rolled away.
And as dead man
the guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love
displayed its might
Then suddenly a melody
filled the air
Riding wings of wind,
it was everywhere
The words all creation
had been longing to hear
The sweet sound of victory,
so loud and clear.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death’s sting
no more suffering

Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king.

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
has a hold on you
No more death’s sting
No more suffering
