My word for the year 2010
I struggled on what I wanted my WORD to be for this new year but finally came up with ACCOMPLISH.
Miriam-Webster Dictionary describes it as:
Main Entry: ac·com·plish
Pronunciation: \ə-ˈkäm-plish, -ˈkəm-\
Function: transitive verb
Etymology: Middle English accomplisshen, from Anglo-French accompliss-, stem of accomplir, from Vulgar Latin *accomplēre, from Latin ad- + complēre to fill up — more at complete
Date: 14th century
1 : to bring about (a result) by effort <have much to accomplish today>
3 : to succeed in reaching (a stage in a progression) <would starve before accomplishing half the distance — W. H. Hudson †1922>
4 archaic a : to equip thoroughly b : perfect
I have found that I often start projects and never finish them or at least not in a timely manner. I also need to accomplish the goals I have given myself for this new year. I can tell this is going to be a great year and I will ACCOMPLISH many great things! I hope that you will come by my blog often as I plan to share with you many of my accomplishments!

2 : to bring to completion : fulfill <we can accomplish the job in an hour>
