Motivational speaker Stephen Covey, “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” author, dead at 79

I forget what year it was. I had the honor to meet Dr. Covey. I was at a program at his institute on Principled Center Leadership. His habit of “begin with the end in mind” has made a profound effect on me.

He will be missed but not forgotten.

Stephen R. Covey, author of “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” as well as three other books that have all sold more than a million copies, has died. He was 79.

In a statement sent to employees of a Utah consulting firm Covey co-founded, his family said the writer and motivational speaker died at a hospital in Idaho Falls, Idaho, early Monday due to complications from a bicycle accident in April.

“In his final hours, he was surrounded by his loving wife and each one of his children and their spouses, just as he always wanted,” the family said.
