    Taking gospel principles, putting them in hardcover in a commercial secularized product, and making millions in the process. Why do I not feel good about this?

    I don't gush over people, but in this case, this is a no brainer. I was talking to Covey once and a situation came up where he could have deviated from his principles that would have been to the benefit of him and his family. However, he held firm and was true to his teachings. I respect that.

    Regarding Priestcraft message,
    Covey took eternal principles and packaged it in a way that the world would consume it, not slam the door on it. He walked the talk. He lives win/win. He inspires others to higher ground. That's good missionary work. :-) Go Covey

    Priestcraft, while in general I don't care for religion and selling religious concepts, I don't see how Covey has necessarily gone to the lengths you suggest. Granted, I don't know all of his work but the minor things I've been subject to don't necessarily seem to be what you suggest. Being honorable in business dealings and setting goals is and always has been a beneficial practice for businesses and business men. Many non-religious people have taken Covey's courses and done well for themselves and others who use those businesses seem to benefit from it. It seems like a win win for everyone.
