Dennis Lehane, author
“I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions so this year I resolve to change my mind and actually make one, which I think I just did.”

“I could resolve to do a lot/Perhaps I’d even do it/Of course it only works if no one/Tries to hold me to it.”

Rob Corddry, actor and comedian

“Get comfortable turning off the cell phone for an hour on a regular basis.”

Gordon Hamersley, chef and former owner of Hamersley’s Bistro
“Learn to take my time and cook better at home.”

Jared Sullinger, power forward for the Boston Celtics
“To be the best I can be.”

Marty Walsh, mayor of Boston
“I’m going to try to spend time with my family, get enough sleep, eat more salad, and drink more water and less coffee. I also would like to read more inspirational and historic books on leadership.”
