Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Success Is Great. But Significance Is Lasting.

You’ve achieved a measure of success in the first half of life, and it’s been a thrill. But deep in your heart, you want your second half to count for something far more. Something bigger than you. Significance. You’re not alone; you’re in "Halftime." You want to discover where your deepest passions intersect with your greatest abilities and harness them to help change the world.

But what does significance look like? How do you attain it? What will it cost you? What if you are not yet financially independent? Who can help you make sense out of this stage of life?

Lloyd Reeb knows how it is. He’s wrestled with the same questions—and found answers. In From Success to Significance, he unfolds a blueprint that has helped thousands of men and women redefine success and infuse their lives with eternal significance. Adapt Reeb’s approach to your circumstances and, with God’s help, put it in motion. It works, and it will work for you.

Discover God’s unique purpose for your life. Your talents, your drives, and everything you are will make sense in a new way and have an impact you’ve never dreamed of. Go ahead, start dreaming. Because significance is within your reach, and it starts by finding the freedom to dream.

"Many people measure their success by wealth, recognition, power, and status. There's nothing wrong with those, but if that’s all you’re focused on, you’re missing the boat. Lloyd Reeb shows that if you focus on significance—using your time and talent to serve others—that’s when truly meaningful success can come your way."

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book if you are looking for a tangible process of thinking through "what's next" for you in your life. It does more than just give you a 30,000 foot view, but takes you through the right questions to ask and simple, yet profound, tools to help you find your sweet spot in the second half of your life.

This is a very inspiring book. I was at a cross road in my life and truly needed a book such as this to guide me through. The examples are very helpful too.

There are a few things that I learned from reading this book. I have recently retired (knowing I must continue working) so the book was a timely read. However, the information did not resonant with me. On the other hand, I found Halftime to be inspiring, as well as, informative.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book to read as you enter your late 30's to get prepared to "be significant" in the 2nd half of your career. It presumes that you are unable to quit your job, but suggests various alternatives for becoming significant while maintaining your job/career.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jimmie A. Kepler on December 16, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I read the book for a Bible study I was part of at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas. I had breakfast as part of a group of men with the author Lloyd Reeb.

The book attempts to show how regular people can add significance to the second half of their lives. He atempts to show how persons before achieving financial freedom and without leaving their career can find significance. He strives to show you don't have to be rich to find a life of significance. It in somes ways attempts to answer the question, "Is that all their is?" He attempts to help you tie meaning to your work and/or ministry to you work. I was disappointed in the examples used in the book. They tended to be examples of persons who were upper middle-class, business owners etc., instead of what I view would be ordinary people. The primise of the book is good, but it missed the mark for me.
