"Look at the beautiful bonsai tree. Its growth and shaping did not happen overnight. It has taken many months for this strongly rooted trunk to grow to maturity; it's growth has been aided each day. It has been tied back at times. It has been trimmed, watered, fed, and loved. Now it is strong and robust, ready to impress all that look upon it and splendor in its majesty."
After reading that quote, don't you think you should treat your trunk like that?
