Stephen Covey dies as result of bike accident

This morning I read that Stephen Covey died yesterday due to complications from an April bike accident.  

 

Here are some interesting statistics that I read this morning:

 

  •  "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People"  published in 1989 was on bestseller lists for four years.  It sold in excess of 20 million copies in 40 languages.
  • He had a multi-million dollar business empire that markets audiotapes, training seminars and organizing aids aimed at improving personal productivity and professional success.
  • He personally trained corporate executives and politicians.


I know personally that I have been inspired by his books.   There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about "win-win", "sharpen the saw", "be proactive", "begin with the end in mind".

He certainly made an impact on many and left a legacy that will inspire generations to come.

If you have never read "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" I would sincerely recommend it!

I had the pleasure of actually hearing him during a Mastermind conference with Brian Buffini.  So many people have benefited from his guiding principles.

I read that on Google, Kathy. Very sad, he was a brilliant man and I used several of his ideas.

Yes, this made me very sad.  However, I take comfort in that he had an amazing and well balanced life.
