How to Cultivate a More Joyful Life

Margin in our calendars means having or creating extra time in our lives to do something other than the things we are currently doing. The problem is that most people think that creating margin is a matter of time management and delegation strategies. Although some of that may be required in our journey toward joy, the real challenge lies deeper in our hearts.

Sadly, only one person in five — just twenty percent of us — answer ‘true’ to

Four Tips for a More Grateful Halftime

Living generously changes everything – for the better. Thanksgiving Day is just a few days away so this naturally sounds like a good time to write a blog about being thankful. I’ve always enjoyed this holiday and would spend it being thankful for my many blessings - you know, the usual stuff … family, health, home, job, and all the things I enjoyed. That’s where it ended. This doesn’t mean I wasn’t grateful other times of the year. I was thankful, but it always stopped there ... I was

A Coach’s Point of View:  Discovering the Heart Journey of Halftime

By Steve Ivaska “So what is God showing you?”  Those were the words my Halftime Coach asked shortly into our scheduled call.  Two months earlier I had attended a Halftime Institute Launch Event, gotten clarity around a personal mission statement to guide me, and formulated a game plan for moving forward in my “journey from success to significance.”  Strategy and planning always seemed to come easy.  The seemingly intuitive thought process served me well in my business career.  Where are we today, where do we want to be, and

Remember to Stroll

By Jeff Spadafora   An ordinary Tuesday. Launched with the Word. Skimming really. Mechanical. A little shallow today. Hmm. Time to move on. Things to do. Hustle and muscle. Create and collaborate. Despite the Christian labels Not much different from my B.C. days Old habits that used to serve well Now taking a toll on my heart Sure the kingdom grows. And people are blessed. Truth is revealed. But my pace and performance power it. Why this march?  Why this effort? Why do I forget trust and lock onto results?
