What Are Your New Year Resolutions ? by webaplanet(m): 9:41am On Dec 27, 2012
A New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. A key element to a New Year's Resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings. People committing themselves to a New Year's resolution generally plan to do so for the whole following year. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous.

According to Gretchen Rubin (author of best-seller "The Happiness Project"wink: "You hit a goal, you achieve a goal. You keep a resolution".

Religious origins:

The ancient Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts.

The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named.

In the Medieval era, the knights took the "peacock vow" at the end of the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry.

At watchnight services, many Christians prepare for the year ahead by praying and making these resolutions.

There are other religious parallels to this tradition. During Judaism's New Year, Rosh Hashanah, through the High Holidays and culminating in Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), one is to reflect upon one's wrongdoings over the year and both seek and offer forgiveness. People may act similarly during the Catholic fasting period of Lent, though the motive behind this holiday is more of sacrifice than of responsibility, in fact the practice of New Year's resolutions partially came from the Lenten sacrifices.[3] The concept, regardless of creed, is to reflect upon self-improvement annually.

Popular goals include resolutions to:

Improve well-being: lose weight, exercise more, eat better, drink less alcohol, quit smoking, stop biting nails
Improve finances: get out of debt, save money
Improve career: get a better job
Improve education: improve grades, get a better education, learn something new (such as a foreign language or music), study often
Improve self: become more organized, reduce stress, be less grumpy, manage time, be more independent, perhaps watch less television, play fewer sitting-down

So what are your New Year Resolutions ??

Frankly I didn't make any resolution for the new year, my resolutions are made daily when the need arises(usually as a result of deficiency in efficiency. I don't have to wait for the end of the year to make a resolution

Infact all my goals for the comming year was made 2 years ago, I don't see any reason to make some additional goals or edit my constitution.

My resolution for every year remains the same, stick to my mission statement(which incorporates my personal constitution and goals).

My new year resolution is to never make any resolution on new year. You can make your changes anytime you want. You do not need a special day for that coz it might be too late.

In 2013, I am going to create a platform for people to be financially empowered. And it will also make me money.

All plans are already in place, kicking off as soon as I get investors. 2013 is my year to step up to the spotlight!

What a resolution! undecided
Re: What Are Your New Year Resolutions ? by Justiyke4u(m): 12:12pm On Dec 31, 2012
I av been expecting something like this i even wanted to ask it but found it immaterial because if u are the type that makes resolutions every year , if u break any rule maybe say in Jan 10th that means u av to wait till 31st Dec to make another resolution now is that not penny wise pound foolish. If resolution should be made it supposed to be everyday. Achievement doesnt come at once but a process so when ever u have a shot take it dont wait thats the spirit. New year can only motivate u and inspire u...
