Are We Living In A Bucket-Carrying World ?
Who are you ? A bucket-carrier ...... or a pipeline builder? Do you get paid only when you how up for work like Bruno the Bucket Carrier ?
Or do you do the work once and get paid over and over again like Pablo the Pipeline Builder ?
If you're like most people, you're working the bucket-carrying plan. It's the time-for-money-trap.
In The Parable of the Pipeline, author Burke Hedges explains how virtually anyone can leverage their time, relationships, and money to become the millionaire next door" by using the time-tested secrets of wealth creation. After you understand this teaching, there are ways this 'pipeline' can be built in real life.
The problem with bucket carrying is that the money stops when the bucket-carrying stops. Which means the concept of a "secure job" or "dream job" is an illusion. The inherent danger of carrying buckets is that the income is temporary instead of ongoing.
If Bruno woke up one morning with a stiff back and couldn't get out of bed, how much money would he earn that day ? ZERO ! No Work-No Money !
The same goes for any bucket-carrying job. Once bucket-carriers stop carry buckets for any reason, they won't continue to get a paycheck.
Small Actions equals Big Results:
While Bruno spent his evenings and weekends peacefully, Pablo had to work hard on his pipeline. He kept on reminding himself that “Tomorrow’s dreams are built on today’s sacrifices”. “Inch by inch it’s a cinch” he kept on saying to himself as he dug every foot in the ground. “Short-term pain equals long-term gains” he repeated to himself as he went to rest in his humble abode after a hard day’s work. “Keep your eyes on the prize” he repeated over and over as he drifted to sleep.
