Stephen R. Covey died today because of complications from injuries sustained in a bicycle accident.
Dr. Covey was selected as one of Time Magazine's 25 Most Influential Americans and he was the author of many books about success and leadership.
He taught that within each of us is the power to change the world. He helped people discover a sense of mission and purpose.
For me, he was more than a "success guru," he was one of my favorite college professors. I took two classes from him, and he didn't just teach the principles of success, he lived them.
We will miss him!
