Halftime is a great book that hits the mark for me and many professionals with whom I associate. I find that many of my friends in senior roles in the corporate world are frustrated. The scramble to the "top" in the corporate sense is often painful and always consuming. Many of us, without realizing it lose the balance between God, family, work, and the personal aspects of our lives. The result is frustration, stress, often broken families, and an emptiness plagued by the question, "What am I missing?". Bob Buford has been there and come through to the other side to a life of significance (and success). In his book, he provides an insightful understanding of the root of the problem that is enlightening to many of us, provides a roadmap for thinking through what God has created each of us to do, and provides inspiration to move on to significance in the second half. I've given away a couple dozen copies to friends and associates already. I'm looking forward to participating in a launch event in April.
The concept of life has two halves, and one can perform poorly in the first part but finish strong in the second, or vice versa, is a helpful paradigm.I've recommended this book to friends at this stage in life.
