Happiness Project Update

I finished reading The Happiness Project over the long weekend, and I have to say I'm very inspired.
 
I consider myself "very happy" at this stage in my life -- I've got a good, stable job, a loving relationship, a varied group of friends, hobbies and interests. However, you can always be happier, right? There are a number of things that I would like to do to improve my state of happiness -- tone down the critical voice in my own head, improve my productivity by not wasting time on the internet, let go of many things that don't help me.The point of The Happiness Project is to determine what things in your life make you "feel bad, feel good, and feel right, in an atmosphere of growth". Decrease the things that make you feel bad, increase the things that make you feel good and feel right, and cultivate an atmosphere of growth -- it makes sense!
 
This week's Happiness Project video is about picking one word to set the tone for the year. My word is FOCUS. It ties in neatly with all of my 2011 New Year's Resolutions and has an added ring to it of peace and mindfulness. All things considered, I like it.

What would your word for 2011 be?
