What’s your resolution going to be?

There are just four days left until 2010!
It’s hard to believe how fast not only this year, but the entire decade has flown by.
This time of year makes a lot of people do a lot of reflecting. It’s time to look back, but more importantly look ahead. What kind of person do you want to be in the coming year?
Statistics show that more than half of Americans will make a New Year’s Resolution and the vast majority have declared one at some point in their lives.
This week is the time to plan ahead a little and make that resolution.
Here are 22 of the most common New Year’s resolutions as listed by Wikipedia:

Wow, that’s a lot to think about. And there’s no rule that you can’t make more than one resolution.
