Change Starts Here: Live Life in Crescendo
Live Life in Crescendo: Your Most Important Work is Ahead of You is the new book by Cynthia Covey Haller. Haller, a teacher, and speaker outside of her writing duties, spoke with Dustin Odham about this inspirational book, guided by the wisdom of her late father and co-author of Live Life in Crescendo, Stephen R. Covey.
Haller calls herself the mother hen of the Covey family; she is the eldest of nine children. Haller’s also a mother of six and a grandmother; with this new book, she adds first-time author to her list of accomplishments. One lesson Haller learned from her parents that she carries with her today is to try harder than anyone she knows and own up to her mistakes.
For Haller, Live Life in Crescendo is a true labor of love. Her father passed away ten years ago, but they began discussing several projects in 2008. “The one that intrigued me the most was this idea, live life in crescendo because that was his personal mission statement for the last ten years of his life,” Haller said. “He said, what if you helped me out, take my ideas, interview me, and then you do the work.” It took a while to complete the book, but following the book’s mantra, Haller got it to the finish line.
The impetus behind the book is the concept that there isn’t an age when one packs it in. People should continue to learn, grow, and never be satisfied where they are; strive for more and don’t diminish. Haller views living life in crescendo as a new way of thinking. “It’s a new paradigm to look at life in every age and stage that you’re in, and it’s looking at a problem thinking, I’m going to make this better and find a way to make it work. I’m going to start with myself.”
