12: 37 Weenie! Cuz 75 Hard Challenge rules and ADHD don't mix!

If you have ADHD then you'll probably find the 75 Hard challenge rules too restrictive!

"In knowing that we can be consistent for short periods of time and not long periods of time like we set that expectation for, it actually opens the door for us to make this really super fun!" - Katie McManus, Brave Business Coaching

This is a seriously difficult time of year for people like us, who have ADHD. 

We're all about setting those goals right now. And so we're fantasizing all about those rocking hot bodies and hard abs we'll be showing off after we've completed the 75 Hard challenge.

But here's the sad thing.

The 75 Hard challenge rules don't work for us neurodivergent peeps. 

Here's the episode you need to listen to if you want to do an ADHD entrepreneur friendly version of 75 Hard.

Welcome to 37 Weenie! 

Watch a promo video for the episode that's setting you the 37 Weenie Challenge!


Why the 75 Hard challenge rules don't work for ADHD people

In case you've not heard of it, the "75 Hard challenge" is a fitness and personal development program that involves completing specific tasks for 75 consecutive days.

While the challenge can be effective for some people, it may not be the best choice for those with ADHD!

One reason the 75 Hard challenge rules may not work for people with ADHD is that they require a high level of discipline and consistent effort over an extended period of time.

This can be a challenge for anyone, but it can be especially difficult for those with ADHD, who may struggle with impulsivity and difficulty focusing.

Additionally, the 75 Hard challenge involves a strict set of rules and tasks that must be followed, which may not allow for flexibility or customization based on individual needs and preferences.

This can be frustrating for those with ADHD, who may benefit from more structure and support in order to stay on track.

It's important to remember that everyone is different, and what works for one person may not work for another.

You, my darling weenie, need to find what works best for you and your unique needs and challenges.

The benefits of long habit forming challenges

Habit-forming challenges, such as the 75 Hard challenge, can be beneficial for runners and writers who do not have ADHD because they can help establish consistent patterns of behavior that can lead to long-term success.

For runners, a habit-forming challenge can help them build up their endurance and strength over time, allowing them to gradually increase the distance and intensity of their training.

This can help them reach their goals, whether it's running a marathon or simply improving their overall fitness.

For writers, a habit-forming challenge can help them establish a daily writing routine, which can be crucial for producing high-quality work.

Writing every day can help writers develop their skills, generate new ideas, and improve their discipline and focus.

Overall, habit-forming challenges can be a valuable tool for anyone looking to make lasting changes in their lives.

By requiring consistent effort over an extended period of time, these challenges can help individuals build new habits and achieve their goals.

But, once again, we have ADHD.

So we need to go another way.
