Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance
by Bob P. Buford
Have you ever consciously thought about your personal “Halftime”?
“Halftime” by Bob Buford is not a book about your arrival at success and how to apply it. It’s about giving back and finding meaning and purpose in life
Halftime defined by Peter Drucker:
"People now have two lives - life I and life II - and they are over prepared for life I and under prepared or life II, . . . there is no university for the second half of life"
Many of us are at a point in life where we have achieved some measure of success, we have accumulated more stuff than we probably need, yet there is still something missing. At our most honest moment, we realize that the prospect of spending the rest of our lives accumulating more things, or pursuing career advancement is simply not enough. We want our lives to really count for something, something that will live on long after we are gone. We want to move beyond success to significance. Bob Buford has labeled this stage of life Halftime.Halftime is a time out, a time to think seriously about one’s purpose in life and draft a game plan for the second half. It’s a time when the quest for success loses meaning, and you ask, “Is this all there is? What next?”While most Halftimers are not financially independent, they have options about how they can spend their time, talent and treasure.
“Halftime is a pause in midlife to reflect on what we’ve accomplished,
who we have become, and what will matter in the end.
It is a point to redirect our time and resources for the second half.”
