[The 75 Hard Challenge]

Welcome to The Quiet Rich, your weekly guide to a quiet mind and rich life.

Today, you’ll get the viral “75 Hard” Challenge that will make you unrecognizable in 11 weeks (if you stick with it). 🔥 Scroll down for the method.

Btw— big thanks to today’s sponsor, Artlist.

I get a lot of questions about how to grow a brand on social media.

One of the most important tips is to post consistently. (But making good content takes time.) Artlist makes it way easier by giving you access to templates, royalty-free music / video footage, and AI-powered search.

Have you ever heard of 75 Hard?

It’s a brutally effective, 75-day challenge designed by Andy Frisella. And it’s not for the faint of heart; it will test your mental toughness and your physical limits.

So first of all, why do a challenge like this?

Because we rarely leave our comfort zones anymore.

Humans weren’t built to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day, scroll mindlessly on our phones, and watch tv as an empty escape before doing it all over again.

We are capable of so much more than this. When you test your body, you strengthen your mind.

(Side-note: There’s an excellent book on this called The Comfort Crisis.)


Here are the rules of 75 Hard.

Every day (for 75 days in a row) you’ll:

  • Finish two 45-minute workouts (Yes, walking counts)

  • Drink 3-4 liters of water

  • Read 10 pages of a book

  • Take a progress photo (just for you)

  • Have no alcohol or cheat meals

You can track each of these things in the 75 Hard app (and trust me— tapping each of these boxes to cross them out every day is wildly satisfying).

Oh, and if you miss any one of those things? The count resets to 0. And you have 75 days left again.

So… why would anyone start this? 😅


Because after 2.5 months, you will have:

  • Built lasting habits of eating clean and staying hydrated

  • Read 750+ pages (~2 books)

  • Gained muscle and lost fat

  • Spent 56 hours outside

  • Probably slept better with no alcohol

  • Visually seen your progress

And most importantly…?

You increased your mental toughness. This isn’t a physical challenge. It’s a mental one. Someone described this to me as “a triathlon for your brain.”

I managed to complete it last year (with the 75 Hard app), and couldn’t believe how much resilience it gave me. 

If you start the challenge this week, you’ll be unrecognizable by April. You in?

Pro Tip: It’s especially motivating to start this challenge with others (a partner, family member, group of friends). Plan a big moment or vacation as a group to work towards (like a beach holiday in April).

Accountability will get you through the toughest days.

Until next week,


P.S. I got a lot of questions last week about how long ago I started writing on social media. The honest truth? One year. I wrote my first post in January 2023 and have grown from 1k - 400k social media followers in 12 months.

I owe most of that success to —you guessed it— discipline. The self-discipline to post consistently for a year will take you far.
