If you want a tree to remain in the shape you find most pleasing, you have to constantly prune it. You have to limit its growth. You have to stunt it.

This is true of everything, not just trees. Your perfect children will keep growing up, your perfectly structured org chart will expand as the people in it change, and the soccer club you started will expand to people you don’t even know.

Put the shears down and enjoy it. You’ll be better prepared to grow with it.
