My Word for 2012


The writers of a lot of the blogs I read have picked a word to focus on in the new year. A word to shape how they plan on tackling the year ahead of them.

This is inspiring to me, so I have chosen a word as well.

My word for 2012 is fulfill.

fulfil or fulfill (fʊlˈfɪl)

vb , ( US ) -fils , -fills , -filling , -filled

1. to bring about the completion or achievement of (a desire,promise, etc)
2. to carry out or execute (a request, etc)
3. to conform with or satisfy (regulations, demands, etc)
4. to finish or reach the end of: he fulfilled his prison sentence
5. fulfil oneself to achieve one’s potential or desires

I have a number of goals I’d like to fulfill in 2012 so I think that this is a great word to help keep me focused on my goals.

I think that even the synonyms are inspiring:

1. accomplish, achieve, complete, realize. 2. execute, discharge,observe. 3. meet, answer, fill, comply with.

With inspiration like that, how can 2012 not start out on a great note?

What is your word for the new year?
