I have a sago palm that is overtaking my living room. Is there any way I can prune the good stems to make it shorter?

See this article about trimming sago palms:
https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/sago-palm/prune-sago-palm.htm

Generally, it is advised to only remove dead or damaged fronds, and not to shorten fronds, so the best option might actually be finding the plant a new home. If this is not possible, you may be able to remove a few of the longest fronds, following the advice in the article.
