 A Mature person organizes their life with two major principles – ridding themselves of wasted time – and maximizing their efficiency while they are working toward a goal.

Maximizing a mature persons efficiency refers to setting up a routine of everyday life that fits an overall plan for the years required to obtain a certain goal.
