Please join us for our next “Coffee with Lloyd” webinar on July 18th at 9:30am ET. We’ll be talking about Three Essential Limits to Finishing Well (when too much can ruin our second half).
During one of my mentoring sessions with Bob Buford, when I was turning 50, he said something like…”Lloyd, in your first half of life you didn’t allow things like an outsized lifestyle or fear to limit you. You took the time to get clear on your calling and move beyond many limiting factors. I applaud you for that. But in this next season of your life you are going to have to learn to live within your limits.”
That’s not often the advice we hear from motivational speakers or find in self-help books. As you can imagine, my mind was whirling wondering what limits did he mean? In what area of my life was I exceeding my limits that I did not realize? He went on to explore at least five areas of my life where I was likely to try to go beyond my limits and it would eventually cost me.
Some had the potential to ruin my impact and even my reputation. Others might damage my health.
In our second half, some new limits emerge that we often don’t anticipate, but they enable us to make new and important contributions if we discipline ourselves to live within those limits.
In this 30-minute webinar Doug Piper and I will explore not only the limits that Bob Buford pointed out to me, but how you can identify the limits that you may need to live within for a healthy and productive second half.
For those who can stay on, we’ll spend another 20-30 minutes on Q&A.
