On September 3rd, 2020 I started Andy Frisella’s 75 Hard
Challenge. It’s 100% free to join and you can read all about it
On that page, Andy describes it as “NOT a fitness program”
although you ARE required to work out twice a day during the 75
He goes on to say that it’s “a transformative mental toughness
Today, Friday, November 13th, marked my 72nd day, and since I
fully embraced the program, I have thus far achieved some
For example, while it’s not positioned as a fitness program, when
I first started the program, I was in fairly poor physical
Due to a chain of events, I found myself on THREE different blood
pressure medications… as a team of doctors tried to figure out
what was going on with my system.
I was also on an acid reflux med, and one for gout.
Although I took daily walks back then, my wife often called me on
my cell phone during my walks BECAUSE several times I had felt so
tired that I had to stop and phone my wife to pick me up.
Today, I’m not taking ANY blood pressure or acid reflux
medication! I keep the gout med in my desk drawer in case I have
a flare-up, but am gradually bringing that problem under control
via dietary changes.
Needless to say, I did a LOT of research on exactly how the human
body works, and how it CAN repair itself if given the proper
tools… as your doctors keep an eye on you!
The mental shifts that I made were to 100% STOP PROCRASTINATING,
and to also start better managing my time… something that I’m
still working on.
A lot of that shift was accomplished by what I fed my mind. I
simply started listening to role models who taught me the
importance of largely ignoring criticism and the very common
tendency to be a people pleaser, to embrace the inevitable
failures as stepping stones to success, and to actually LISTEN to
the experiences others freely share!
Having stopped procrastinating, I committed to doing a number of
things that I had been putting off, although I haven’t locked in
dates for a few… that’s not procrastinating, that’s managing my
At age 61, I don’t want to burnout before I’m 91 🙂
I HAVE forced myself to start getting more sleep, and being more
For your “motivation,” here are a few things are on my short-term
schedule… some firm, some soft.
– Get my PhD (I like the idea of being called Doctor… it may
just be in Underwater Basket Weaving)
– Learn to play the guitar (I have an instructor, but am starting
– Build a second home in the Philippines so that I can split my
time between two of my favorite countries
– Launch a product on tapping into a multi-trillion dollar niche
(launch date, November 16th, 2020)
– Open my Super Affiliate Training Center membership site (launch
date, November 23rd, 2020)
– Launch Version 2 of my Rank And Rent Website Training (launch
date, November 30th)
– Release Volume 2 of my autobiography, Git Off The Porch
(release date, November 30th) I’m debating audio versions of
both volumes but may eventually do those 🙂
– Publish an ebook and physical book on herbal medicine, with a
lot of tie-ins (release date… December???)
– Publish an ebook and physical on a health topic (keeping topic
quiet for now but releasing in December)
– Publishing an ebook on Money (keeping topic quiet for now but
releasing in December)
YES, this can appear slightly ambitious to some but it’s not
really, and in-case you can’t tell, I enjoy writing.
I also know how to tap into others knowledge, skills, talents,
wisdom, willingness to help, etc.
MOST of the above things are also interwoven, and already in
The timing on a few is more critical than most. For example, I
want to release Volume 2 of Git Off The Porch in time to offer
autographed copies of one or both volumes as Christmas presents.
That means that I need to get enough copies from the printers in
time to autograph them and get them in the mail in time to
hopefully arrive before Christmas!
Whoa, it does look like that if I want to get all this done (PLUS
MORE), I may need to spend less time goofing off on social media
Wishing you love, success, and happiness,
