Christmas is over, now get serious about New Year resolutions!
Christmas is over and the wait for the New Year eve has started. Before the New Year begins, many people get into the act of retrospection and get ready to make resolutions to live in a better way in the coming year.

Generally, a New Year's resolution is regarded as a commitment that an individual makes to a project or the reforming of a habit, often a lifestyle change that is interpreted as advantageous or better. Some people look for the possible aspects of life for which the resolution is to be made. Perhaps, the following guidelines may be helpful.

As the legend has it, the tradition of making New Year?s resolutions originated in ancient Rome, with the mythical king Janus. Because Janus had two faces, he could both look ahead to the future and look back on the past. This allowed Janus to evaluate his resolute future, based on his past.

Some of the most common resolutions listed in Wikipedia are as follows: I will be be less grumpy/ drink less or no alcohol/ eat right/ gain or loose weight/ get a better education/ get a better job/ get fit/ pay off debt(s)/ quit smoking/ reduce stress/ save money/ take a trip/ volunteer to help others .

It has been further suggested that the New Year resolution is an example of the ?rolling forecast method? of planning. According to this method, plans are established at regular short or medium-term time intervals, when only a rough long-term plan exists.

So, what is going to be your resolution on this New Year eve?
