How Serious Am I?

       By Halftime Alum Claudia Cantrell After returning to Atlanta from the Halftime Institute with my cohort in October 2015, I was so energized! I am sure that we, the alumni, share these memories of recalling past adventures, successes, failures, and losses. In addition, we had a great and fun time meeting and getting to know our cohort group and the coaches.  We all left with a draft of our own personal mission statements, goals, and a determination to “tackle the world” and make a difference in

Building A Thriving Family In Your Second Half – Part 2

By Lloyd and Linda Reeb Last month in Part 1 of this series, we talked about how our second half can be a turning point in our family’s legacy rather than a time to solely focus on ourselves.

Help! I Can’t Find My Passion – Part 3

By Lloyd Reeb Passion is the fuel that drives us, an essential ingredient to a second half of meaning and impact. In this blog series, we’ve been exploring what to do when you can’t seem to find a compelling passion. It’s a common problem. Some of us may have turned our ‘dreamer’ off decades ago, and need to find the freedom to dream again.  For others, our passion is hidden in plain view – we simply need those around us to help us see it. In my case I had

Help! I CAN’T FIND my PASSION – Part 2

By Lloyd Reeb A few years ago we began to explore one of the most frustrating challenges that Halftimers face –   “I can’t find something I am really passionate about.” There are four common causes for this frustration. With these frustrations we have a few steps to help you move past them. If you see yourself in one of these scenarios I encourage you take us up on our “hour of free coaching” offer to talk with a Halftime coach to leverage their expertise in moving you deeper into

Help! I Can’t Find My Passion – Part 1

by Lloyd Reeb If passion is the fuel that drives us, and if it’s an essential ingredient to a sustainable second half filled with meaning and impact, then … what do you do if you cannot find your passion? Few things in the season we call “halftime” are as frustrating as reaching a point where you want more. You have the margin and health to pursue a second career or new adventure. You see others living in their sweet spot lost in something bigger than themselves, but that “something”

With Thanks and Great Expectations

In 1984, Bob and Linda Buford made a huge commitment to support the Halftime Institute and Leadership Network for 30 years. They have faithfully completed that commitment this year. In anticipation of his substantial financial support ending in 2014, Bob and the Halftime Institute Board of Directors gave us a three-year runway to change our revenue model to become self-sustaining from new sources by 2015.  During these past three years, we have worked hard and have been blessed enormously in transitioning from dominant support from a few to a combination

The Power of a Board of Directors

by Lloyd Reeb, Primary Spokesperson A Personal Board of Directors is a small group of 3-7 people comprised of family, friends, and/or colleagues who are willing to give you input, honest feedback, inspiration and encouragement over time as you go on your Halftime Journey. Why do Halftimers need a Personal Board of Directors? For years now, the Halftime Institute has noticed that people who transition from success to significance in the “healthiest” way have regular input from people who have been specifically asked to provide it. This is different

A Coach’s Point of View: When You’ve Been Given Much

By Lloyd Reeb, Certified Master Coach "When you have been given much and squander it by drifting or through self-absorption, you lose big time." -Lloyd Reeb  You’ve been blessed with success and are looking for greater significance, but what are the rewards of trying to make a difference in this world? And, a more haunting question perhaps, what are the responsibilities that come with success? In my own halftime journey I was confronted by something Jesus said in Luke 12. There’s a large crowd surrounding Him and His small
