There’s No Perfect Plan or Perfect Moment

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 is based on meaning and purpose.  I

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

It’s Time To Say No

By Diane Paddison, Halftime Institute Alumnus and Founder of 4word Women Everyone I know experiences some kind of pressure to do more, whether at work, with family, at church or with countless worthy causes. We live in a culture that values achievement so highly, it's nearly impossible to imagine not loading up our plates with responsibilities. We pressure ourselves, too.
