I saw Mission Impossible 4 and, what can I say? It’s awesome. (Well done, Brad Bird, Tom Cruise, et al!) If you haven’t already, you should go see it at once – on the big screen, preferably IMAX.
I loved this movie so much it has informed my New Year’s resolutions for 2012. Here they are, in no particular order – the top 5 things I learned from Mission Impossible 4:
1. “Light the fuse.”
Like a battle cry, but no need to yell – that’s right, it’s time to get started.
2. Have a plan, but don’t be afraid to change it up.
By busting out a fellow inmate in your Russian prison at the last minute, for example.
3. Visit a foreign country.
Always a good idea, and something I don’t do enough.
4. Be persistent, daring, and bold in pursuit of your goals.
Even if it means going back outside the building to get in – oh, yeah.
Your body is your best instrument and you never know when you, too, will be doing your own stunts.
BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR!
