“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 grows buds. It doesn’t grow like a tree, as its physical size is limited, but the buds keep on coming. To the point where if it grows *too many*, the bush can actually 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) to have an ample supply. But if we want to reach our full potential, it will require pruning, trimming, and a critical look at what ideas can stay… and what can go.
