“Roses that are left unpruned can become a tangled mess of old and new canes, all competing for air and light.” - Elizabeth Roth
As the rose bush grows, it creates more buds that it can maintain. It doesn’t grow like a tree, as it's physical size is limited, but the buds keep on coming. And if we don’t trim the buds down… the whole bush can exhaust itself and die.
Ideas are like rose buds. They constantly need to be “pruned” or trimmed. If we don’t trim our ideas, just like the rose bush, we can overwhelm ourselves.
Growth ideas are natural and it’s completely normal (and a very good thing) for new ones to come on a daily basis. But if we want to reach our full potential, it will require the pruning, trimming, and critical look on what needs to stay… and what needs to go.
