A teacher at heart, he often taught: "there are three constants in life: change, choice and principles."
From the oval office, the board room, community halls and to the school house and family room, Stephen taught the mindset, skillset and toolset found in the 7 habits of Highly effective people, his seminal work.

Forget Time Management - Manage your Life Jul 2, 2008
I have read and attended many time management programs. Steven Covey really gets you with this 3rd of his 7 Habits of Highly Successful People (another good buy - do that one first). Understand your principles and goals as this is not about your time, but the time in your life. On the audio version he is humourus and entertaining.
For those who like this kind of book... May 3, 2006
If you think you'd find a lot of unrelated platitudes interesting, then you'll enjoy this book.
Covey is the best! Sep 23, 2004
Covey stands tall above the rest in a world rife with self-improvement seminars. His practical wisdom can be applied to the workplace, marriage and parenting and truly enhance your life! Covey's strong Christian faith and commitment to family are evident in his philosophies and can only enrich every aspect of the whole person - which is what his 7 Habits are all about. This book touches on his "Begin with the end in mind" and shows you how. Highly recommend!
Profound and Powerful - This program deserves ten stars! Sep 7, 2004
If you have ever said to yourself:
I have too much to do and not enough time to do it
I can't find the balance between my personal life and work. When I take time from one to the other, it just makes matters worse.
There's simply too little of me to go around
I don't feel in control of my life
Way down inside I have this empty feeling. It's like the song, "Is that all there is?"
First Things First is not just another time management program. Rather, this is a program that connects the investment of time to our deeper priorities in life. The concepts espoused by Dr. Covey are profound, powerful and pragmatic.
Rather than offering you another clock, First Things First provides you with a compass. While other programs teach you harder, faster, and smarter First Things First teaches you direction and priorities because where you are heading is more important than how fast you are going.
Keeping with Dr. Covey's tradition, this program is about effectiveness not just efficiency. But not just effectiveness in your business life, but in your personal life as well.
Great program and highly recommended.
