Stephen Covey Is Building An Online Community Of Highly Effective People


8 Comments

Stephen Covey wants you! He seeks to build the network of like-minded highly effective people.

Following JD’s coverage on Stephen Covey Speaks at Microsoft I discovered that Stephen Covey is building his social network of most highly effective people

If you sing up (free of charge) you get the chance to be coached by Stephen Covey in very systematic way:

Stephen Covey Is Blogging

I also enjoy the blog.

My favorites so far are (guess why?):

I liked this post most because of its starting quote:

‘The top software developers are more productive than average software developers not by a factor of 10X or 100X or even 1000X but by 10,000X.’ Quality knowledge work is so valuable that unleashing its potential offers organizations an extraordinary opportunity for value creation.” – Nathan Myhrvold, former chief technology officer at Microsoft

Join The Beta

Stephen Covey invites to participate in beta launch of the Covey Community.

Are you in? Are you joining other more than 8,000 highly effective community members? I am in.

    I just noticed that Covey is speaking here in Portland very soon. Tickets are $200. Interesting to see that he is starting up an online community. I’ve got enough going on in life right now, not sure that I want to start something new. But if it’s really good, I’ll do it.

    Do not waste 200$, do not start something new blindly. Read this first (it is cheaper and less time than signing up for Covey Community)

    Main principles are there. If you like it then you will adopt/adapt the principles and then you will find your techniques to implement it (rephrasing Waldo Emerson a bit )

    it is small investment of time to decide whethere to move forward or not. I think it is worth it as Stephen is the world figure in any way ;)

    I am sure he is going to cover some basics, something that you’ve already learned long ago…

    Read it and if you like it, leave JD a comment ;)

    I’m up for an experiment — I joined the Beta! (Covey owes you ;)

    I think it will be interesting to see it from the ground up. I’m also hoping people post interesting challenges.

    @JD – Yeah! I am going to send their billing department the invoice. I am kidding!!!

    I think it is the place to find like-minded and expand the network of personal growth and effectiveness. I am sure to give it a serious try as this site resonates a lot with Practice This Vision

    @Shilpan – Happy to be of help! Careful with idols ;), take a look what Deity handed to Moses among other 10 Commandments:

    “You shall not make for yourself an idol”

    If you would like to implement some of Stephen Covey’s best ideas, you can give a try to this web aplication:

    Gtdagenda.com

    You can use it to manage and prioritize your Goals (in each of your life’s categories), projects and tasks, in an intuitive interface. It has a Checklists section, for the repetitive activities you have to do, important but not urgent (Quadrant II, for example your routines/habits). Also, it features a Schedules section and a Calendar, for scheduling you time, activities and for the weekly review.

    Some ideas from GTD are also present, like Contexts and Next Actions.

    And it’s available on the mobile phone too, so you can access it wherever you are.

    Hope you like it.
