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

SEEING THE HERO IN BEING A SERVANT

By Lloyd Reeb, Author of From Success to Significance Our heroes are most often the strong and valiant, but Jesus gave his followers a different ideal: “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life

FIVE POWERFUL HALFTIME HABITS

By Lloyd Reeb, author of Introducing to Halftime Group eCurriculum I got a call recently from someone I have been coaching through Halftime, and he asked, “Lloyd I notice that you use routines and habits a lot in your life. What would you say have been the five most leveraged or influential habits in your life?” I had never given that much thought. When I look honestly at accomplishments in my first half I notice that they were supported largely by a few healthy habits around focus and work. Now

I LOST MY HEART

  "I lost my heart." Those were the words Pat Ahern shared with me on a dreary February morning at a local Starbucks. After serving for 20 years as CEO of Red Rocks Credit Union and receiving numerous professional awards, recognition and influential political appointments, Pat had somehow, unknowingly, buried his heart along the way. As a self-admitted "go through the motions Christian," Pat was offered - out of the blue - a senior role with a global Christian nonprofit organization. The offer served to highlight one glaring
