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.

those never ending long journeys never know what the hell to say!

I need help with this one, I never know what say also stucck for words

stop mumbling
Being afraid to voice my words, not being clear!

As I talk people lose interest, or I often have to repeat myself, or people mistake what I say I said dog they think I said uggs…lol…okay for months of being baffled to why its frustrating to talk…it has also knocked my confidence, I also sound like a retard and think I need to speak slowly or louder but that is not it! It is possible to whisper and still get your point across because its about the non verbal communication expressing yourself…

My mother says I mumble, after months I realised it’s being afraid of voicing your words not being clear, not have great vocab, I often get stuck in what to say and people finish my sentence.

Hey people lets try recording ourselves in videos, or tapes…see how we talk when we are alone, also try talking with tv on see if you can hear yourself???? Also read this whole blog aloud, read aloud is great practice we did it as children why stop being lazy?

In these websites it cannot stress enough reading aloud at home….—-excellent website, helping you to talk effectively within minutes and realise where you go wrong!

READ ALOUD, that is what I’ve learnt today, I have not mastered talking to people however I am in the process to battling this. Easy to say not to do though lol.

be a fashion designer
Got my placement for a fashion degree

hopefully, i can become successful and people will find an interest in my designs. If not I will become a fashion buyer.
