9780310284253: Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance

Midlife is no longer a crisis, but a growing awareness. The achievements that energized your success no longer seem as rewarding. You find yourself thinking, there's got to be more. You're ready to move from success to significance. Welcome to halftime: your personal timeout in the game of life. Time to pause and take inventory of what really matters to you in order to chart an even more meaningful and satisfying second half. 'My passion is to inspire business and professional leaders to embrace God's calling and move from success to significance,' writes Bob Buford. Proven in the lives of thousands of men and women worldwide, the values, wisdom, and hands-on applications in Halftime are timeless. Features of this newly updated edition include a foreword by the bestselling author of Good to Great, Jim Collins; new questions for reflection or discussion; brand new 'halftime' stories of men and women enjoying a second half of significance; specific halftime assignments to guide readers into their second-half mission; and a special update from the author on how the halftime movement is growing nationally.

Review:

According to Bob Burford, broaching midlife doesn't have to be a crisis. In fact, in Half Time, Burford insists that it is actually an opportunity to begin the better half of life. The first half is busy with "getting and gaining, earning and learning," doing what you can to survive, while clawing your way up the ladder of success. The second half of life should be about regaining control, calling your own shots, and enjoying "God's desire ... for you to serve him just by being who you are, by using what he gave you to work with." What lies between the two is "halftime." Buford argues that whether you are a millionaire, a manager, or a teacher, you will one day have to transition from the struggle for success to the quest for significance. Halftime, then, is a quiet time of deliberate decision-making, restructuring, and passionate contemplation of your heart's deepest desires. Buford's writing is grounded in the real-life experience of success and failure, and most poignantly, the death of his son. While he has led a very successful life in the eyes of the world, Buford's personal stories reveal that his faith in Christ is his central priority. Instead of a transition to be feared, Buford makes midlife an introspective journey of abundance that will unleash God's best for you. --Jill Heatherly
