It’s What You Do Most of the Time, Not Some of the Time, that Shapes You

Today I want to share something that I would like you to keep in mind: No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. Therefore, no one can follow any of my health and fitness programs ‘perfectly.’ Even I miss a workout and meals from time to time, and even my plans sometimes get interrupted by traffic jams, delayed airline flights, meetings that take longer than expected, and even over sleeping. But those things are the exception, not the rule. Most of the time, I eat 6 nutritious protein and carbohydrate balanced meals a day. Most of the time, I exercise intensely. Most of the time I keep a positive mindset and am optimistic. And most of the time, I feel healthy and energetic. Remember, it’s what we do most of the time that shapes us, not what we do some of the time. So don’t worry if you’re not ‘perfect’–focus on simple progress not perfection. ~Bill Phillips


  1. Bank holiday Monday, thanks Bill for you inspirational movitation, I was relaxing today, but BP has just put his foot up my ass, so cheers Bill time to chisel those abdominals

  2. The 80/20 rule definitely applies here. 80% of your results come from the 20% of things you do well on a weekly basis. Likewise going off track 20% of the time will not hurt your progress as long as you are nailing your workouts and eating right 80% of the time.

  3. Had a lot of celebrating over the last 3 days with my daughter graduating from college ! And was feeling like such a failure and this is exactly what I needed to hear!!! That’s why I am a such a huge fan of you ! Thank you
