What is progress?

How do we measure progress? What is the ultimate aim here? Can, having an internet connection, be defined as progress on it's own?

Or is progress finally about living in contentment, peacefulness, or knowing that you've made somebody else's life better? And by 'making somebody else's life better, I don't mean providing more money to be spent on useless things like TV or get a McDonalds meal.

One's life is only better, when one don't feel depressed about their own life. I do believe God-consciousness, peacefulness, and the knowledge of our aim in life - is how we can progress in life.

Our concept of progress have been so contaminated with the greedy ideas coming from the west. It's time to stop and reflect. Take the good and throw the vice.
