Well folks, this is it. The last day of 2010. As you celebrate with friends and family, it is important to think about resolutions that will help you grow in the next year. Did you know that the New Year’s Resolution tradition goes back to 153 BC?
During that time Janus, the mythical king of early Rome was placed in the beginning of the calendar. His two-faced image represented looking toward both the past and future. Because of this, Janus became the ancient symbol for resolutions. Typical Roman resolutions looked to amend past disputes with enemies.
Today, resolutions are more personal. Here’s the top 10 resolutions from Associated Content‘s list of the top 20 New Year’s Resolutions.
