What habits need pruning?

I neglected to prune the blueberry bushes on our farm for several years. Okay, more than several. Like five years or more.

They grew to monster size. Taller than me!

So I decided to get them under control before all the berries went wild. The pruning took more than my usual clippers. It required my chainsaw.

The bushes looked dead when I finished. My wife didn't really believe me when I said they'd come back.

And yet little by little green sprouts appeared. Just one or two at first. Then more. Leaves began unfolding. And soon more. Some even flowered and tiny blueberries are growing right now.

Just like I did with my blueberry bushes, it's easy to neglect pruning bad habits. Bad habits grow and go rogue, so much so that you hardly recognize yourself due to your wild behavior.

Cutting out bad habits takes drastic measures sometimes. You have to take a chainsaw to certain familiar behaviors and you might feel like a zombie when you do. Some of your bad-habit friends might think you're dead.

Just know that you'll grow back better. The fruit you produce at work and home will be sweeter. More aligned with who you really are--a person designed to make a life worth living. Prune your bad habits and Live Positive.
