Illustrations by Mr Patrick Leger | Words by Mr Mansel Fletcher

Clichés become clichés because they have some basis in reality. That's why, despite the fact that New Year's resolutions seem trite, the first of January is a good day to ask just how closely our ambitions correspond to the reality of our lives, and why the second of January is a good day to start to address the inevitable shortfall.

This year we're looking to fictional heroes, and fictional antiheroes, to define half-a-dozen resolutions. Between them they address the big stuff, such as the tone of our professional conduct and the nature of our private lives, as well as everyday concerns, such as the intensity of our gym routine, the way we make coffee and the kind of bars we drink in.
