When you prune things you cut them back. You have to prune things back in order to make it flourish. Not anyone can simply begin pruning, one must learn how to prune in order for the plant to flourish.
All of us could confess that things pop up in our lives that take our focus off the main thing. Gal 5:22-23 are all fruits of the Spirit. We should look into the areas where the opposite of the fruits are growing. From a business aspect, they are always looking for ways of making more money, cutting out those things that waste money. Mat 5:16, Gods aim in your life is to make you more fruitful. Just as the fruit gardener is, God is patient. If you're grafted into the true vine then God will prune away all of the things that are unproductive. The fruit we bare is not to give glory to the branch.
How fruitful are you? If you're truly attached to the vine then the vine cares about what type of fruit your growing and sharing.
