This episode is part of our special webinar series on Using Your Platform For Good In Crisis. To say that this season has been disruptive may feel like an understatement.

It’s much like pruning.    Halftime Institute Alumni around the world are leading some of the most critical, compassionate and impactful organizations serving quite literally millions of people – and we wonder: How

Coffee with Lloyd: Preparing to Reset Your Life

How can you prepare for the next season, post-coronavirus? What have you learned and what are the implications? What did Jesus say that might help you navigate the days ahead? Bob Buford, the founder of Halftime Institute, boiled his life mission down to fit on a T-shirt: 100X. The concept comes from a parable Jesus told about the soil (Mark 4). He taught us to view our life like soil – soil that has the potential to produce 100X yield. Bob Buford wanted to prepare the soil

How To: Be a Sur-thrivalist

By: Chip DeClue, Halftime CertifiedTM Coach In the midst of this COVID-19 crisis, it can often seem as if the world has stopped.  Plans for the future have been put on hold as uncertainty looms. Business trips, vacations, retirement plans, weddings… most postponed, many outright canceled. And the list goes on. This is especially true for those who are in the process of transitioning into the next season of life.   One Halftime client of mine lamented, “It feels like I’m in the halftime of Halftime. What should I

Webinar: Strategies For Serving Your Local Non-Profits

This episode is part of our special webinar series on Using Your Platform For Good In Crisis. Naturally, our hearts are drawn to making a difference in our own community – particularly in times of crisis. But we may easily tire of the constant request for funding, especially when we feel that we have so much more to offer. The idea of writing a check for meals or funding rent for a family about to be evicted is a privilege, but it’s not leveraged.    David Weekley is Chairman

Today, Halftimers all over the world are responding with the same blend of creativity and compassion. Perhaps

Five Critical Elements for Finishing Well

At the Halftime Institute we care more about how you’re doing 30 years from now, than 30 months from now. We want more for your impact than just a flash in the pan. Often, a flash in the pan does more harm than good to the people around you, forming dependencies that are unsustainable if life demands that you take a step back. There’s a big difference between heaving a healthy mid-life transition and finishing well. A few years back, we were prepping for a conference around the
