Our lives are like bushes that should be regularly pruned back to remain healthy


Our lives are like a bush that should be regularly pruned back to remain healthy.

As it grows, it creates more buds than it can sustain.

Pruning them back will lead to a better quality bush in the long term.

In this way, pruning back your goals every so often will leave you with the goals that will provide you with the most value when you achieve them.

Another way to look at it is that you prune back the things that you are saying yes to so that you can focus on your best things with more energy.

Similarly, each thing you say yes to is a choice to say no to something else.
