In Memoriam: Stephen R. Covey

Posted on

One of the great icons of our time, Stephen R. Covey, passed away this week.

This giant of an intellect with the soul of a child cannot be replaced. His insights into the nature of people, his wisdom, his writing, his speaking, his work and service, his example, his integrity, and his just-plain common sense helped millions of people around the globe become better people and better leaders. It is an astonishing legacy.

Covey’s call for “principle-centered leadership” was prescient for what our world so sorely needs today. We are confident that his family, colleagues, and others will carry on the seminal work to which he contributed so much. We certainly plan to try.

We were thrilled when Covey and his son, Stephen M. R. Covey, agreed to write the Foreword to our book, since we are longtime admirers of both of them and their work. They have inspired us and challenged us to be better people. We are humbled and awestruck to realize that his words there are some of the last he ever wrote.

We ask you to pause and thank Stephen R. Covey for his wonderful gifts and service to the world, and to keep his beloved family and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers.

Silent but still speaking.
Departed but still connected.
Gone but not forgotten.
May God bless his soul.

Respectfully,
Bob and Gregg Vanourek


One thought on “In Memoriam: Stephen R. Covey

  1. , Continuous effort not stegrnth or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential. If you think about people of great success, very few have been overnight successes, but have been giving continuous effort and focus to some thing on a daily basis. Just a bit at a time consistently over time. Just like your marathon training will be done from a schedule that has worked for many other marathon finishers.The biggest learning for me was that I needed to know what the goal is his first to be able to develop a plan to work from AND to celebrate the daily effort. It is tempting to only congratulate yourself when to big goal has been completed. The big goal is only accomplished from the daily actions. Keep the euphoria in each days actions and celebrate daily. Clean and Simple!
