There’s No Perfect Plan or Perfect Moment

By: John Sikkema, Director of Global Partners All too often, as I connect with business men and women around Australia, I hear myself often saying, "There's no perfect plan or perfect moment, so don't wait for it!" In my book, 'Enriched:Re-defining Wealth', I highlight seven principles that challenge people's road blocks to pursuing an enriched life.  Principle #6 is exactly this, waiting for a perfect plan or moment is no longer an option. People often ask me when they should jump into a second-half career or a career that

How Serious Am I?

       By Claudia Cantrell After returning to Atlanta from the Halftime Institute Launch Event 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

Halftime Nation – “The Company of the Committed”

By: Greg Barnes, Director of Alumni Engagement Now 40+ years ago, as a Baylor Freshman, I encountered a book by Elton Trueblood (The Company of the Committed, Harper & Row 1961) that rocked my world then and resonates still today as a guide for the missional aspirations of our Halftime Nation.  Trueblood, a noted 20th-century American Quaker and accomplished author and theologian, was a former chaplain both to Harvard and Stanford Universities. ”Millions are only back-pew Christians”, Dr. Trueblood declared. “What is needed is a task force of committed

Fit To Serve: The Power of Our Thoughts

By: Michelle Spadafora, Founder of FaithfulWorkouts The Halftime Institute surveys their clients about their satisfaction level in various dimensions of their life; ranging from their career, marriage, faith, and so on. “Health” consistently shows up as an area that people are not satisfied with. Why is it that even though we desire good health, we can’t seem to attain it? In my experience, one main factor that holds us back from improving our health are thought habits and patterns. Throughout my 30 years in the health and fitness industry,

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE… FOR ME?

       By Dean Niewolny, President and CEO of the Halftime Institute David was an unlikely champion, sent by his father to the battlefield to not necessarily fight Goliath, but to take provisions to his brothers and their captains and report back. A father would not typically send his teenage son into a campaign such as this, much less to fight the champion of the Philistine army one-on-one. Prior to this, David was chosen by God and anointed by Samuel to become king of Israel. Can you imagine David leaving
