From Stephen R. Covey—the late, legendary author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People—a set of principles for achieving a happy and fulfilling life of primary greatness. Many of us are hurting. We have chronic problems, dissatisfactions, and disappointments. Although we generally make it through the day, a lot of us feel overwhelmed by burdens we carry. We try to “lift the load of life” each day and sometimes it’s just too much. The idea of living a “great life” seems a distant dream. Stephen R. Covey believed there were only two ways to experience life: primary greatness or secondary greatness. Through his books and speaking, he taught that the intrinsic rewards of primary greatness—integrity, responsibility, and contribution—far outweighed the extrinsic rewards of secondary greatness—money, popularity, and the self-absorbed, pleasure-ridden life that some people consider “success.” In this posthumous work, Covey lays out clearly the 12 levers of success that will lead to a life of primary greatness: Integrity, Contribution, Priority, Sacrifice, Service, Responsibility, Loyalty, Reciprocity, Diversity, Learning, Teaching, and Renewal. For the first time, Covey defines each of these 12 qualities and how they can be leveraged and enacted in your daily life to lead you to success and happiness. Featuring his trademarked wisdom that is beloved and has inspired countless readers and leaders, Primary Greatness once again delivers classic Covey advice in a concise and reader-friendly way.

This commemorative collection captures the essence of Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s most profound teachings on business, success, management, family, and love. 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.”

When a career-ending injury left elite athlete and professional football player Lewis Howes out of work and living on his sister’s couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He started by reaching out to people he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches’ advice from sports to life off the field. Lewis did more than bounce back: He built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host. In The School of Greatness, Howes shares the essential tips and habits he gathered in interviewing “the greats” on his wildly popular podcast of the same name. In discussion with people like Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Pencils of Promise CEO Adam Braun, Howes figured out that greatness is unearthed and cultivated from within. The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented, but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives. A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he culled from his greatness “professors” and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.

Countdown to Greatness (C2G) is designed to ignite and re-ignite an individuals awareness of their potential. The book reminds us that all individuals have greatness within them, and that we all have the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others. By helping others, we help ourselves to become better individuals, and move closer and closer to our own potential and to greatness. When we understand the internal emotional reward of helping others, we begin to see not only our potential as individuals, but also see our potential as members of a family, a team, or a group of individuals working together for a common purpose. C2G provides basic principles of individual development, presented in a condensed and easy-to understand format. Individuals of all ages can take the information and apply it in their daily lives. Readers can continuously look to C2G to remind them of their purpose. The books focus is to inspire; however, C2Gs primary purpose is to help individuals understand their purpose, so they can find the key to their self-inspiration. Once we find our internal fire, we will always know how to rediscover our fire, and re-ignite. I wrote C2G to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I was inspired to write this book as a tribute to all those who have inspired me throughout my career and my life. My hope is that Countdown to Greatness will ignite that same type of inspiration in everyone that reads this book. And if reading this book inspires you, then you have inspired me even more, as inspiration is a continuous cycle. We all have greatness within us. It is up to us to find it and share it with all those around us. Time to Inspire! Time to Be Great!
