Simply Quotes: cut rose blooms

“A rose bush produces more blooms than it can handle.” – unknown

RoseI don’t know that this is a quote that is attributable to someone but it is a principle of growing beautiful rose bushes. It is also a principal for better managing your life.

From time to time, it is important to reevaluate where you have been, where you are now, and where you are going. Without this reevaluation more stuff keeps adding on to your life.

A couple of times a year analyze your life to determine all that you are involved in, what you are working on, where are you making progress and where are you not. Are you where you thought you would be? If not where do you need to go and how will you get there?

Throughout the year you will add new things to your life. New things that you probably don’t have time to do. It’s time to prune. Draw a line and determine what will be pruned. Just like a rose bush that needs to be pruned so that it can grow even more. You will need to remove things from your life to make room for the new things you will do. Without pruning you will not grow as much or produce as many blooms. You will need to prune promising buds to make room for even more.

What do you need to add to your life so that you can grow even more?
What do you need to prune from your life now so that you can make room for new buds?
