“Midlife crisis is painful, but it’s a blessing. Don’t try to walk around it.

This is a stage in life that we need to go through to grow from.”

The Halftime Institute was created to help leaders get clarity on how to use their passions, strengths, and work in a way that brings them joy, impact and balance. We do this through a process that incorporates one-on-one coaching, peer feedback, and connections with a global network of leaders to help people discover their sweet spot. Our programs are customized for each person because each person is unique…as you’ll see with Carlos and Hugo’s stories.

However, this discovery phase can be scary. Entering a season of transition is often uncomfortable. 

While leaving the familiarity of our comfort zones for deeper fulfillment is a risk with a high reward, it is still a risk.

Instead of allowing fear to be an obstacle, think of fear as an onramp. Let fear serve as an indicator to press in and be propelled forward. After all, most worthwhile endeavors require some element of risk and unknown. 

Lean into the risk knowing that our tools that have been tried and tested over more than 20 years. We’ve figured out the common obstacles to living with impact in this season of life and help you avoid the pitfalls.

Whether it be in your career or personally, you’re in ‘halftime’ when you face a transition that leaves you asking, “what’s next?” But rest assured, you’re not alone in answering this question. 

Here are 5 Practical Considerations the panelists shared for those who may be asking “what’s next?”:

5 Practical Considerations When Identifying “What’s Next?”

1. Acknowledge Where You Are.

Can you relate to the feeling of “smoldering discontent” in your current season?

2. Incorporate Your Faith.

What could it look like to integrate your beliefs into all areas of your life?

3. Bring Your Family Along.

How can you keep in step with your loved ones while navigating times of transition?

4. Define Your Context. 

Will you stay where you are, start something new, or join in with an existing organization? 

5. Focus on Character.

What are your guiding values and how will you live them out?

As you reflect on these considerations, our team is here to help you think your confusion out loud.
