“The power of a keystone habit draws from its ability to change your self-image. Basically anything can become a keystone habit if it has this power to make you see yourself in a different way.”
These are the habits that, once implemented, have a positive impact on many other facets of your life.
Their effect is similar to a domino: all you need to do is perform this one habit and you’ll see the benefits ripple out.
