Pruning Branches

Notice the lower branches of this tree appear to be dead and, therefore, might be safely pruned, thus improving the overall health of the tree. Eddy, too, has aspects of his character that might be safely “pruned” to achieve a beneficial effect. For example, he’s a risk-taker, so should he try curbing this impulse, i.e., he drives too fast (while he’s drunk and stoned), and he has contempt for authority (refuses a direct order from a superior officer)? Perhaps he needs to improve his risk-benefit assessment skills.Image
