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.

September 2010: "Fire On The Mountain" by Ed Kowalczyk

“Fire On The Mountain” by Ed Kowalczyk

The fever’s breaking on this girl
The sweat is running down her back
I taste the salt and dream of oceans
tears of joy so glad
we have not lost the will to move
to stand when we must stand
just when we thought the light had gone
it shows itself again
and as we climb the heat it grows
the purest love you’ll know
what dreams we had are fading into black
all I got from that city they’re takin it back
all I need I believe
what I want I can see
the fire on the mountain is calling me home
where are you baby can you hear me callin out your name
through the fog of spirit making clouds
and making dark the way
as we climb the sound it grows
the angels’ trumpet blows
what dreams we had
are fading into black
all I got from that city they’re taking it back
all I need I believe
what I want I can see
the fire on the mountain is calling me home
calling me home
calling me home
speaks to me in whispers
to my soul
sayin do not fear the ghosts that walk this road
no, they can’t do a thing to you turn your eyes to me
and feel right through, yeah
what dreams we had
are fading into black
all I got from that city
they’re taking it back
all I need I believe
what I want I can see
the fire on the mountain is calling me home
calling me home
calling me home



August 2010: "Heaven's Symphony" by Atmospheres

“Heaven’s Symphony” by Atmospheres

Let the world around us fade away
And hear the angels say
Glory to Your Name
Lord of all the heavens and the earth
All Consuming Fire
Be our one desire
Symphonies flow through us
And the melodies will move us
We sing of all You are
Of all You are
Angels cry Holy
To God be the Glory
Holy
Holy
Lord God Almighty
All the angels gather round the throne
And sing out in one voice
To worship you alone
Let creation tremble at the sound
As all the people sing
Glory to the King
Symphonies flow through us
And the melodies will move us
We sing of all You are
Of all You are
Angels cry Holy
To God be the Glory
Holy
Holy
Lord God Almighty
Angels cry Holy
To God be the glory
Holy
Holy
Lord God Almighty



July 2010: "Our God Is Greater" by Chris Tomlin

“Our God Is Greater” by Chris Tomlin

Water you turned into wine
opened the eyes of the blind
there’s no one like you
none like you
Into the darkness you shine
out of the ashes we rise
there is no one like you
none like you
Our God is greater
Our God is stronger
God you are higher than any other
Our God is Healer
Awesome in power
Our God
Our God

Into the darkness you shine
out of the ashes we rise
there is no one like you
none like you

Our God is greater
Our God is stronger
God you are higher than any other
Our God is Healer
Awesome in power
Our God
Our God

And if our God is for us
then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us
Then what could stand against

May 2010: "Gonna Make It Right" by Ryan Star

“Gonna Make It Right” by Ryan Star

working hard
hard to catch a break
in a crowded town
trying to find my place
and I’m so damn tired
both hands on the wheel
and I call you now
‘cause you know how it feels
I’m leaning on you again
‘cause I know you’ll understand
I’m gonna make it right
gonna make it right
I’ve been knocked down
but i’ve got one more fight
I’m running in the night
but I’m running towards the light
this is the time and the place and i swear
that I’m gonna make it right
working hard
hard to catch a break
in a crowded town
trying to find my place
and I’m so damn tired
both hands on the wheel
and I call you now
cause you know how it feels
it’s moments like this I find
I’ve never felt so alive
I’m gonna make it right
gonna make it right
I’ve been knocked down
but i’ve got one more fight
I’m running in the night
but I’m running to the light
this is the time and the place and I swear
that I’m gonna make it right
I’m not giving up
I’m not giving in
I’m gonna ride this wave
and if it kills me then I know I lived
gonna make it right
gonna make it right
I’ve been knocked down
but i’ve got one more fight
I’m running in the night
I’m running to the light
this is the time and the place and I swear
that I’m gonna make it right…



April 2010: "You Never Let Go" by Matt Redman

“You Never Let Go” by Matt Redman

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back
I know you are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We’ll live to know You here on the earth

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You

“You Won’t Relent” by Misty Edwards

You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours
You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours

I’ll set You as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
Many waters cannot quench this love

You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours
You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours

I’ll set You as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love

Waters cannot quench this love
You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours
Waters cannot quench this love
You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are one
Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are one
Until You and I are one

You won’t relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours
Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are one



February 2010: "Winterlong" by The Smashing Pumpkins

“Winterlong” by The Smashing Pumpkins

and if i fall into you all
will my rain cease and dissolve
some come to harm, others to grace
so let my friends fly under these wings

we’re giving it up to the sun
we’re giving it up to the moon
we’re giving it up to the earth
giving it up from our room
know when there’s nowhere to run
know when there’s not much to lose
sometimes it seems so long
since you had a chance to refuse

we built a fire
winterlong
transform to iron
winterlong
i was the first one
i was the last one to be strong

and if i fall into you all
will the silence shatter and stall
some feel movement, others stand still
so let the moment become my will

we’re giving it up to the sun
we’re giving it up to the moon
we’re giving it up to the earth
giving it up from our rooms
know when there’s nowhere to run
know when there’s not much to lose
so why does it take so long
to find out who is who

we built a fire
winterlong
transform to iron
winterlong
i was the first one
i was the last one to be strong

we’re giving it up to the sun
giving it up to the moon
we’re giving it up the the earth
giving it up from your room
we’re giving it up to the sun
giving it up to the moon



January 2010: "Chaos" by Mutemath

“Chaos” by Mutemath

Complication’s my claim to fame
And I can’t believe there’s another, constantly just another
I can’t avoid what I can’t control
And I’m losing ground, still I can’t stand down
And I Know, yeah I know… Yeah

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I always see you when my sight is lost
everything around’s breaking down to chaos

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I always see you when my sight is lost
everything around’s breaking down to chaos

It’s hard to trust anyone again
after all the let downs I’ve been through,
haunted by what I’ve been through.

Best to try, while I still can breathe
and I’m screaming out, give me help somehow
And I know, yeah I know… Yeah

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I always see you when my sight is lost
everything around’s breaking down to chaos

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I always see you when my sight is lost
everything around’s breaking down to chaos

Chaos, chaos

I know you stay true, yeah
I know you stay, yeah, yeah, yeah

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I know you stay.

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I know you stay.

I know you stay true and everything around’s breaking down
I know you stay true and everything around’s breaking down

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I always see you when my sight is lost
everything around’s breaking down to chaos

I know you stay true when my world is false
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
I always see you when my sight is lost
everything around’s breaking down to chaos
