Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance by Bob P. Buford

Are you ready to move into the second half of your life? Bob Buford believes the second half of your life can be better than the first. Much better. But first, you need time to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. In Halftime, Buford focuses on this important time of transition—the time when, as he says, a person moves beyond the first half of the game of life. It’s halftime, a time of revitalization and for catching a new vision for living the second half, the half where life can be lived at its most rewarding. As Buford explains, “My passion is to multiply all that God has given me, and in the process, give it back.” Features of this newly updated and expanded edition include a foreword by Jim Collins, the bestselling author of Good to Great; new questions for reflection or discussion at the end of each chapter; brand new “halftime” stories of men and women enjoying a second half of significance; specific halftime assignments to guide readers into their second-half mission; an essay by Bob on “The Wisdom of Peter Drucker”; a special update from the author on how the halftime movement is growing nationally, and links to outstanding resources. Midlife. Halftime. It doesn’t have to be a time of crisis. It can be a catalyst for purpose, impact, and growth. Bob Buford provides the encouragement and insight to propel your life on a new course away from mere success to true significance—and the best years of your life.

It's really a book written by a business owner for business owners. Concepts are applicable to everyone though since it deals with looking at one's life and considering a change in the game plan like a football coach who is winning the game but knows that adjustments have to be made to the game plan to see it through to a successful conclusion. A lot of stories to showcase the concepts (which I like). “Half-Time” by Bob Buford (Subtitle “Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance”) has a forward by my absolute favorite business author and thinker, the late Peter Drucker. Recommended by Ken Blanchard & Stephen Covey (among others), so it has some critical weight behind it. It’s all about the journey, right? Successful business owners seem to have the ability to envision the best ways to deliver value and impart that vision to their staff, customers, vendors and the community at large. “Half Time” walks business owners through the same process but with a different perspective. Not to grow a business but envision a fuller life for the business owners themselves and their families that contributes to more completing fulfilling their own life’s true purpose (which may be through the business or beyond the business).

If I had to describe this book in one sentence, I'd have to say it's a Christian based self-help book for people entering the second half of their life to help them make the most of what time is left. If this sounds a bit pessimistic, believe me it's not, in fact its the opposite. The book is extremely optimistic and wants the second half of your life to be the best- and I believe it can be. The book leads you through an insightful journey to help you figure out where you want to be headed. There are many thought provoking questions and the book ends with a discussion guide, mainly intended for small groups, however I don't see why a single reader couldn't benefit from it as well. All-in-all it's worth the read if you're looking for a little direction for the last leg of your journey. Also recommend "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World".

Unfortunately it's loaded to the gills with christian narative which is entirely besides the point it's superficially still trying to make. Unless you are a devout christian who seeks religious reading, skip this book.

Wow!!! If you want to see around some dark, blind corners of life before you get there, this is the book to read! And if you are already further along in life's journey, this book will become a much bigger and brighter bulb in you flashlight. I now have an understanding of how a person changes with time, and why. This book has given me insight to who I am now, what I expect out of myself later, and a path to become what I what to be.
