A rose bush has a limited amount of nutrients available to it. When allowed to grow wild, it never reaches its full potential. For that to happen, pruning is necessary.
Our lives are no different. We all have limited capacity. Every time we add something, our capacity takes a hit.
If today finds you marred by mediocrity, may I remind you it is a good time of year to prune.
Eliminate something and watch what happens. You will be well on your way to flourishing as a leader.
Why do you think it is so hard for a leader to prune?
