I missed this post, but I'm glad I stopped by Kathy Sheehan place on AR to get the news.  Stephen Covey impacted a lot of lives and created fresh ways of thinking about organization and getting our days done.  I still remember reading The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and going to a company class to learn how to use the Franklin Planner.  Like so many others Covey's ideas are simple but powerful.

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!

Jordan, I did hear that he passed away, but I didn't know it was from complications from a bike accident.  Was it a motorcycle "bike" or a bicycle "bike"?  I'm a bicycle rider and auto traffic is sometimes scary especially with texting teenage drivers not watching the road.  I did read his book.  Have a great day and week.

Jordon, thanks for the re-blog.  After hearing this news I decided to go back and re-read the The 8th Habit.
