Selected quotes from Dr. Stephen Covey


Published on

One of the first business books I ever read was The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Dr. Covey. It shaped a lot of the way I looked at my world, starting when I was a sophomore in college and it shapes much of my thinking today. Now that he has passed, I felt it only fitting that I put together my favorite quotes and share them with you. I hope even one of them is just what you need.

  • THANK YOU for sharing this slideshow... I also LOVED Dr. Covey as well, and was certified to teach a couple of his training classes. What a GREAT loss for the WORLD.
