You know you need a change. But how? And where to start?
You’re so used to running on adrenaline. Under the surface, you feel like you just want to escape.
You want peace. You want rest. And you want to devote yourself to something that truly matters.
You’re not alone. I felt that way when I went through a Halftime season, and we see it in many leaders who come through the Halftime Institute. We call it “smoldering discontent”.
But how do you go from smoldering to joyful and impactful?
You must first detox. If you’re not sure if you need to detox, read the first post in this series “4 Warning Signs You Need to Detox From the Rat Race“.
When I went through this season, I didn’t have the time or emotional bandwidth to slow down long enough to understand what was going on inside. I had no passion. Just a desire to escape. What I could not see while head down in my career was the pathology that was driving my success: my addiction to performance, my distorted view of God, or how my health was being damaged.
I had to re-orient my understanding and re-evaluate my life’s scorecard. Then, I had to align my daily, weekly and annual habits accordingly.
So how do you begin to detox in a healthy way even before you make a Halftime transition?
Here are 5 places to start. If you can put even one of these into practice in the next month, you’ll see a tremendous benefit.
