The Wisdom and Teachings of Stephen R. Covey

Introduction by: Sean Covey / Read by: Jesse Boggs
Stephen R. Covey passed away in July 2012, leaving behind an unmatched legacy with his teachings about leadership, time management, effectiveness, success, and even love and family. A multimillion-copy bestselling author of self-help and business classics, Dr. Covey strove to help readers recognize the key elements that would lead them to personal and professional effectiveness. His seminal work, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, transformed the way people act on their problems with a compelling, logical, and well-defined process. Indeed, many of the habits have been assimilated into everyday thinking and everyday conversation. For example, the expressions “win/win” and “first things first,” to name a few, have been incorporated into almost every business culture around the world.

The Wisdom and Teachings of Stephen R. Covey is a compilation of Dr. Covey’s most insightful, inspiring teachings and sayings. His profound influence spread beyond businesses and individuals and was even integrated into governments, school systems, and many other institutions with great success. This book covers his most impactful topics: time management, success, leadership—including principle-centered leadership— all of the 7 Habits, love, and family. This powerful collection is a lasting tribute to the inspirational luminary that so many will miss.

Selected Wisdom from Stephen R. Covey:

“How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.”

“Live, love, laugh, leave a legacy.”

“But until a person can say deeply and honestly, ‘I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,’ that person cannot say, ‘I choose otherwise.’”

“Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” “To touch the soul of another human being is to walk on holy ground.”
