15 New Year’s Resolutions for Mainframers
The tradition of New Year's resolutions stretches back 4,000 years. In Babylon, people sought the favor of the gods for a good harvest by making promises to return borrowed items or to repay debts before their crops were planted, according to History. The Romans took it further when Julius Caesar made January 1 the start of the new year, named after the god Janus, who was often represented in arches and doorways because he would look ahead to the future and back to the past. Romans often made sacrifices and promises to Janus that were tied to improvements in their behavior.
