Which One Are You Doing?

Are you filling buckets or building pipelines?

That’s the question I want you to ponder for the next minute…

If the goal is to get water somewhere and keep it there, just like the goal is to get results and keep the results coming….

which way is better?

Sure, in the short term it seems quicker to just fill buckets of water and run them to the spot where you want to fill the water.

But every time you have to empty the bucket, fill it again, run back, and dump it out again, probably losing water out of the bucket as you run.

However, what if you built a pipeline of water to the spot that you wanted to the water to go?

In the beginning it may take you longer, and it may seem like you’re way behind because you’re building the pipeline, but in the end, you’ll have a continuous flow of water to the area, always beating out the method of filling buckets.


It’s a proven system, a sustainable system, that with a lot of work up front, yields long-term results that will always be there, and at any point you can turn the pipeline on.

So, what’s your fitness and nutrition pipeline?

Well, lets start with what isn’t.

Filling the bucket is following the shiny objects, the quick fixes.

The over-restrictive diets, the training methods that promise a six pack in six weeeks, you know what I’m talking about.

Sure, you may get results, but you’re going to bounce back and yo yo again, having to put a lot of work in, “running” back and fourth.


You can build a pipeline, a system, a system of sustainable habits.

Mastering good meal shopping and preparing habits…

Mastering portion control and calorie consumption…

Mastering protein, vegetable, and water intake….

Finding a training plan that is appropriate for YOU, not the masses, and something you can repeatedly stick to, a frequency you can stick to, an appropriate intensity, etc.

A system that works for you, habits that will carryover and last a lifetime.

It’s a lot of work in the beginning trying to learn these habits and change behaviors, but it’s building the foundation for life long habits.

Following a meal plan for a month will yield results…

But what happens when you can’t follow the plan?

Instead, master good portion control, change your behaviors on shopping and meal preparing, and understand macronutrients like protein, carbs, and fats…

That will yield long-term habits and life-long results.

Start building your pipeline.

1% Better.
