Here we are, almost quarter of the way through the year. Is it a Bond-style 007 year? it is 2007 after all! Is there adventure? How is the mission going? Making progress on goals?

I had a wonderful weekend, now I am back travelling again. On the in-flight entertainment I spotted the new James Bond movie, Casino Royale. I’m not a big James Bond fan, but I had heard good things about this one and decided to check it out. I’m glad I did, there was loads of action and a man on a mission. As I had been speaking about mission at the weekend, the two things just clicked in my mind.

Our own lives could be full of adventure, if we weren’t so busy crowding it out and avoiding our mission. I was interested in what Daniel Craig put into the James Bond character. This was an amazingly focused and purposeful Bond. The physical movements, the walk, the posture and the talk. I always wanted to be 007 when I was a kid, maybe I can be as a grown up by being this purposeful. It might not the same level of adventure as James Bond, but there are times when there is more adventure in real-life than you would find in any movie.

No mission, no adventure. More than ever, I am convinced that if we find our mission and have clarity of purpose, it will bring us great adventure. I am looking forward with excitement to the rest of this 007 year, I hope that you are too.
