Wisconsinite Peter Schroeder is transforming small habits into daily routines.
A digital marketing specialist at SchoolKeep, Schroeder has used "micro-habits" to master reading, learning a new language and even web development.
"A micro-habit is basically just a really small step on how you can start doing pretty much anything you want to do," Schroeder tells NBC NEWS BETTER.
For example, if you want to become a runner, start by taking a jog around your block once a day instead of attempting a full mile.
"It's overcoming that first step of saying 'Wow, this is a really incredible monumental thing that I need to do. How am I going to get there?' As opposed to just taking one step at a time," Schroeder explains.
