The world has lost a great motivational guru Stephen Covey. I’m sure you’ve read the CNN report that Stephen Covey passed away Monday July 16 at the age of 79.

Steven’s books and presentations paved the way for those of us in the business of improving other people’s lives.I think his books influenced almost everyone in business today.He wrote books like

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  • The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness
  • First Things First
  • Principle-Centered Leadership

Stephen Covey’s books and principles were a huge part of my personal and professional training. The world at large, not just the business world, are better for his contributions. Thanks you Stephen Covey for the shared wisdom and charity over the years.

R.I.P. Mr. Covey!
