Stephen Covey, the author of The Seven Habits of Very Effective People, passed away on July 16th. Apparently his death was caused by an biking accident back in April, in which Covey fell off his bike due to some rough terrain. He was wearing a helmet, but still he suffered a severe head injury.
Covey wrote the Seven Habits book, which sold more than 20 million copies. He authored two other books as well. He will be missed by many around the world. He was well-respected in the business community for his work surrounding these books.
Here is an interview with Stephen Covey from a few years back, discussing a facet of success and Habit #1: Be Proactive.
Personally I have not read the Seven Habits book. I believe I bought it and started on it, but did not finish it. How about you? Have you read any of his books? What did Stephen Covey mean to you?
