If the first half was a quest for success, the second half is a journey to significance
Book Title: Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance
Author: Bob Buford (Author), Jim Collins (Foreword)
Halftime by Bob Buford is a great book as it contains a lot of thought-provoking questions on transitioning from success to significance.
Here are my favourite take aways from reading Halftime by Bob Buford:
Halftime : Two halves Sport analogy of Life:
During the first half of your life, you probably did not have time to think about how you would spend the rest of your life. You probably rushed through college, fell in love, married, embarked on a career, climbed upward, and acquired a few things to help make the journey comfortable.
You played a hard-fought first half. You even may have been winning. But sooner or later you begin to wonder if this really is as good as it gets. Somehow, keeping score does not offer the thrill it once did. You may have taken some vicious hits. A good share of men and women never make it to halftime without pain. Serious pain. Divorce. Too much alcohol. Not enough time for your kids. Guilt. Loneliness. Like many good players, you started the half with good intentions but got blindsided along the way.
