my one word for 2016: best

I spent several days meditating over the three words I was considering for 2016. The conclusion? They did not feel right for what I wanted to accomplish this year. It's not that they're bad words or goals to have, but there had to be a better word to represent 2016.

I floated around three other words: fearless, focus, and productive. They didn't stick either. The more I thought about it the more I realized that there was a common theme: I wanted 2016 to be the best year yet. That is how I came to realize that my one word for 2016 is best.

It's quite simple, really. 

Is this the best use of my resources? Time, money, space. 

Is this what's best for me, my marriage, my child, my friends, my family, my business? 

Is this the best I can do or can I do better?

I'm not off to the best start but I still have eleven months to make it better.
