2016 Word of the Year

My yearly thesaurus browsing commenced with:
nurture
And quickly spiralled into:
discipline
refine
support
cultivate
foster
cherish
embrace
forward
progress
ready
vital
alive

Two words kept coming back to me this year: dynamic and sharp. Dynamic is just a really good word - it coveys momentum and progress and just sounds good when you say it. But then, so does sharp. It's short, quick and to the point. It's smart and well put together. It's honed and ready. And as much as I want to be all about movement this year, I feel that being sharp and honing my current set of skills is more important for 2016. I also think it progresses nicely with my 2015 word of patience.

This year I aim to be sharp.
