Keanu Reeves stars as legendary assassin John Wick in this great action film from 2014. With John Wick: Chapter 3 releasing in May, I thought this would be a perfect time for a Reel Leadership article about John Wick.
Having retired from his profession, John Wick is drawn back into the world of assassins when his wife passes away and his dog is brutally murdered by a Russian thug. From there, John’s world goes from normal to deadly.
John Wick is packed with action. It’s an action movie for guys who like to see the bad guys punished. John Wick dispenses his own brand of justice on the lowlifes who took away what was precious to him.

Every year I look forward to ice climbing in February. Every year I remember how much fun I had climbing frozen waterfalls in Munising and the camaraderie of my ice climbing buddies. I also remember how easy ice climbing came to me my first year.

Yet when I get back on the ice, the first day or two is horrendous. My ice climbing technique has digressed to a mess and I struggle to reach the top of a fun, yet easy climb called Dryer Hose. I wonder what happened. I question whether or not I had actually climbed well in prior years.
Then on day three or four, something magical happens. I begin to climb like I remembered. The skills I had honed over the years come back like they had never left.
