Excellent Read for Those Struggling With Mid-Life Mar 21, 2003
Game Plan is an excellent read for those who are struggling with their purpose and significance in life.
Among some of the excellent points Buford mentions are:
1. The first half of life is spent on someone else's agenda while the second half is more about your true self. 2. Learn to say no to many good things. 3. We must have time alone with God and let Him speak to us. 4. Eventually, you will have to take a chance in the second half of your life (career, relationships, interests, etc). 5. The second half of your life can be much better than the first half.
All in all, an excellent read for the person who wants to finish well!
Great Second Half Career Advise Oct 25, 2002
For those who have climbed the "ladder of success" and then wondered "is that all there is?", this book will help direct one in their pursuit of real meaning in life. While being driven from the early days of our first career to achieve "success" in line with the secular world, it is helpful to reflect on how our life can move to being of value to others. In redirecting our developed skills and ambitions, we can uncover real satisfaction and meaning from our contributions. Highly recommended for those who have already "achieved" much, but are looking to "significance" for the remaining years.
Excellent thesis, insights, writing, and recommendations. Nov 14, 2000
This book is a gem and will impact the design for the rest of your life. It offers a critical challenge and practical strategies for creating significance in the second half of life. Bob Buford presents a refreshing view for being active in our middle and senior years. He cites that our accumulated experience and wisdom over our first 20 professional years have prepared us to truly take our gifts and talents to another level, to contribute to the lives of many, and to leave a legacy that continues to make a positive difference after we're gone. His insights are valuable. His recommendations work well. His references to God and Christian principles are sensitively presented and make good sense regardless of the reader's stance on faith. I've been using the strategies effectively for the past 6 months. I have an enhanced personal vision and purpose and an expanded set of goals for my next several decades. I highly recommend this book.
