The next critical task is to complete two 45-minute workouts . One of them has to be outside. Some days I just had to walk for my workouts, but that still counts!

The fourth critical task is reading 10 pages of a non-fiction book that will improve your life. Audiobooks don’t count, but you can use e-readers! 

And finally, critical task number five is to take a progress picture . This is the one that most people miss simply because they forget. So set a reminder and do it at the same time every day!

Oh, and if you miss one of these, you have to start over!

Who would I recommend the 75 Hard to?

The 31-year-old dad who is overwhelmed and feels like he’s in a rut, the 48-year-old that wants to be disciplined but hasn’t ever found a way to make it stick, and anybody who’s competitive enough to take on a difficult challenge that will make them mentally tough!
