Keystone habits lead to the development of multiple good habits this is why I'm calling them the gateway drug for life-changing habits. They start a chain effect in your life that produces a number of positive outcomes.
For example, say that your keystone habit is to sleep 8 hours every night.
Your initial goal is to get more sleep. But this habit can also lead to positive, unintended outcomes like:
•Become more productive
•Eat more healthy
•Having more time to exercise
At first you wanted more sleep, but this keystone habit generated a number of additional habits.
The development of keystone habits can become a critical part of your self-mastery journey.
