Stephen Covey, "7 Habits" Author, Dies At 79 by courage89(m): 6:15pm On Jul 16, 2012
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Stephen R. Covey, author of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" as well as three other books that have all sold more than a million copies, has died. He was 79.

In a statement sent to employees of a Utah consulting firm Covey co-founded, his family said the writer and motivational speaker died at a hospital in Idaho Falls, Idaho, early Monday due to complications from a bicycle accident in April.

"In his final hours, he was surrounded by his loving wife and each one of his children and their spouses, just as he always wanted," the family said.

Covey was hospitalized after being knocked unconscious in the bicycle accident on a steep road in the foothills of Provo, Utah, about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City.

At the time, his publicist, Debra Lund, said doctors had not found any signs of long-term damage to his head.

"He just lost control on his bike and crashed," Lund said. "He was wearing a helmet, which is good news."

Covey is the author of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" and co-founder of Utah-based professional services company FranklinCovey.

Catherine Sagers, Covey's daughter, told The Salt Lake Tribune in April that her father had suffered some bleeding on his brain after the bicycle accident.

A telephone message left for Sagers on Monday wasn't returned

R.I.P Mr. Covey.

Your "seven habits of highly effective people" have a profound impact on me. You're part of the reason why I always try to be proactive, begin with the end in mind and put first thing first.

Your phylosophy, your believes, and your teachings made me a better person today.
When i see the way people behave most times, i just conclude , that they need to read the 7 habits of highly effective people, cos if they do they ll hate some of the things they do today.
Your body may ve died, but ur spirit and teachings lives on forever. Because Heros don't die.
