“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure. Thus, the first law I will obey, which precedeth all others is-I will form good habits and become their slave.” -Og Mandino
“Some habits, say researchers, are more important than others because they have the power to start a chain reaction, shifting other patterns as they move through our lives. Keystone habits influence how we work, eat, play, live, spend, and communicate. Keystone habits start a process that, over time, transforms everything.” -Charles Duhigg
There are three basic characteristics that keystone habits all share, and if you look for these characteristics, you can figure out which parts of your life can become leverage points for success. Read about those at “The Right Habits”.
This post was inspired by my friend Cindy Cullen who sent me a blog post, titled “How to Form Good Habits”. A good read, if you have a few moments.

“Bad habits are like chains that are too light to feel until they are too heavy to carry.” -Warren Buffet
