Stephen R. Covey

I just read the news in Google that Stephen R. Covey, a former Brigham Young University business professor who blended personal self-help and management theory in a massive bestseller, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People," died Monday at a hospital in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He was 79.

I don't know much about him except through his 7 habits book. To be honest, I bought that book many years ago and still have not finished it. I think I stopped reading after the 4th habit or something. Based on my recollection, the book is really a good book that stimulate my thinking to look at things differently, and subsequently do things with new approach. I hope I will have time to pick up that book again to have a quick read just enough to pick up some new ideas to do things. I think I need that again.

Anyway, thanks for his great work, and he will surely be missed! Wish him rest in peace!

Sincerely Wish Stephen RIP.

I bought the 7 habits years ago and intended to read the second time for more stimulation too.
