You know you need a change. But how? And where to start? You’re so used to running on adrenaline. Under the surface, you feel like you just want to escape. You want peace. You want rest. And you want to devote yourself to something that truly matters. You’re not alone. I felt that way when I went through a Halftime season, and we see it in many leaders who come through the Halftime Institute. We call it “smoldering discontent”. But how do you go from smoldering to joyful
How do you live out a desire to serve those in need with the demands of a high-powered career? It isn't easy, and it looks different for every person.

“I feel trapped. And you know I can’t talk to anyone else about this, Rod” he said to me. “I can’t afford to show weakness. It could cost too much with the people I’m leading.” I had just wrapped up a coaching session with a client talking about the frenzied pace of his life, the burden of responsibilities, and how he felt trapped, like everyone wanted something from him.

John Ramstead’s first half experiences were diverse and adventurous, but nothing compared to what he encountered in mid-life. Imagine this: John started out in the United States Navy where he served as a fighter pilot. Then he transitioned to an entrepreneur and then to leading a Fortune 500 management team. Then life threw him an enormous curve ball - a tragic accident that no one thought he would come back from. After 23 surgeries, he not only survived, but he now lives a very full life and
A systematic way to creatively design your second half serving context Once you know what your calling is, how do you design the best way to live it out? Gal 6:1-5 in the Message translation says: “Live creatively, friends, make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that.

You can sense that a transition is coming. Lingering restlessness brews under the surface. This is complicated by the fact that you have a pretty great life by most accounts. You don’t want to be ungrateful, but you feel a lack of purpose in your everyday, and it is starting to
by Halftime Fellows Alum, Griff Jones It’s easy to keep moving forward, isn’t it? But I have learned that sometimes it’s best to stop, press the pause button, rethink, and get intentional about why we are here. Entrepreneurship is in the fiber of my being.

While our purpose may be fixed throughout our time here on earth, how it plays out as we move along can change. At least that’s how it has worked for me.
