Have you designed a roadmap? A roadmap is a game plan to form a vision for making the next season the best season —

It includes your long-term desires, personal mission statement, and a set of specific action plans to make a focused impact.

But what do you do when something grabs your heart that isn’t part of your roadmap strategy?

When we encounter something devastating like a global crisis, family in need, or systemic injustice — how do we know if it is a distraction or a redirection?

During the webinar, Lloyd Reeb and Doug Piper are joined by Halftime Alum, Jason Spaeth to discuss his journey of feeling called to preserve hundreds of thousands of acres of American grasslands – to being all in helping Afghan refugees in deep crisis.

During our time together, Jason and Lloyd share wisdom for pivoting after coming face-to-face with a big need.

3 Principles for Spontaneous Compassion 

1. Persistence – Pay attention to what continues to tug at your heart over time. This could be a need in your own neighborhood or a news story from across the globe. 

2. Prayer – Ask God for guidance and imagine the outcome. Look for opportunities to get involved, trust the Lord, and take the next step forward.

3. Purpose – When following God’s purpose, we may not have all of the answers. However, we can expect the Lord’s presence and goodness to be with us.

The Halftime Institute is the leading authority on creating a next season defined by joy, impact, and balance. For more than 20 years, we’ve served thousands of men and women from varied backgrounds. The concept of ‘halftime’ was born out of the best-selling book, Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, written by Bob Buford. Following the popularity and resonance of his book, Bob founded the Halftime Institute in order to provide a hands-on process and community for growth, support, and learning for people walking through their own season of ‘halftime’. Since then, the Institute has expanded to include world-class Coaches, Staff, and Resources – equipping leaders all over the globe. Interested in gaining clarity for your next season?
