The Keystone Habit

If you focus on changing or cultivating keystone habits, you can cause widespread shifts.

Some habits have the power to start a chain reaction. Some habits are better than others. These habits are “keystone habits.” A keystone habit starts a process that changes everything. Success does not depend on many small things but instead relies on identifying a few priorities.

For example, if you want to lose weight, a good habit would be writing down everything you eat. This is a great keystone habit, because you will increase your awareness of your food intake. Over time, this will drive many changes in your life. You will not “go on a diet,” but you will change how you eat.

Studies confirm that families that eat dinner together raise children with better homework skills, higher grades, and more confidence. People who play sports regularly smoke and drink alcohol less, eat more healthily, and have a happier life.

Keystone habits are like small wins. Accomplishing them is not a big deal. In fact, it’s quite easy. But this small win will drive bigger wins over time.
