2010 Word - Progress

My friend at "If You're Happy and You Know It", wrote about a word of the year. I thought that was a cool idea, so here's mine.

Progress

–noun
1. a movement toward a goal or to a further or higher stage: the progress of a student toward a degree.
2. developmental activity in science, technology, etc., esp. with reference to the commercial opportunities created thereby or to the promotion of the material well-being of the public through the goods, techniques, or facilities created.
3. advancement in general.
4. growth or development; continuous improvement: He shows progress in his muscular coordination.
5. the development of an individual or society in a direction considered more beneficial than and superior to the previous level.
6. Biology. increasing differentiation and perfection in the course of ontogeny or phylogeny.
7. forward or onward movement: the progress of the planets.
8. the forward course of action, events, time, etc.
9. an official journey or tour, as by a sovereign or dignitary.
–verb (used without object)
10. to go forward or onward in space or time: The wagon train progressed through the valley. As the play progressed, the leading man grew more inaudible.
11. to grow or develop, as in complexity, scope, or severity; advance: Are you progressing in your piano studies? The disease progressed slowly.

I wanted a word that will keep focused on my mission here in life; to learn and grow. I want to remember to keep trying even when it's hard - to carry on.

Here's to a year of added knowledge and growth!

I like that idea of a word of the year. Hmm I'll have to think of mine. Progress is a good one though.
