If we use indulgence as the opposite of maturity, then maturity can be defined as our ability to make wise choices due to our ability to delay gratification.
Immaturity has us make a lot of poor choices because we want instant gratification without any thought to the long-term consequences.
This has us do things like:
  • Buy the thing we cannot afford and then end up paying double or more through credit card interest rather than saving up to buy the desired item.
  • Buy things we don’t need because we want them in the moment.
  • Eat that unhealthy food because it looks yummy.
  • Not exercise because we are not in the mood.
  • Not make those phone calls because we don’t feel like it.
  • And so on . . .

It is easier to act in a more mature fashion when we keep the long-term consequences and our long-term goals in mind.

I’ll make better choices with money when I remember that I have a savings goal that is important to me. I’ll make better choices when I remember that I want to live a long, healthy, and skinny life. I’ll make better choices when I remember my business growth goals.
And with all of these, we also need to remember why they are important.
Much Love,
Jonathan
