In this podcast, Rhonda and Andee discuss the three kinds of pruning described by Dr. Henry Cloud and how that benefits us in life.
Our culture isn’t good at endings.
“Pruning a bush means making hard decisions about proactive endings,” Dr. Cloud says. This is the same process we need to go through in determining where we need to prune in our lives.
We must ask ourselves the question, “What does it mean to say something is good vs. best?”
When we prune away those things that don’t provide results, we can invest our time and energy where we make the biggest difference. THIS is where we can make the biggest Kingdom difference.
Pruning old outdated activities, connections, meetings and email lists can give you space in your inbox, calendar, and mind. Removing these helps you be more productive in the space you’re in today.
We tend to shy away from pruning; it sounds really painful. However, if we’re willing to go through the process, we can produce some beautiful fruit.
