This week we attempted to deep dive the topic of MATURITY. WHAT…A….TOPIC. What is it? As we said in the beginning of this episode we hope that just raising the topic gets you to ponder this word/ topic/ concept afresh in your own life. We are a podcast trying to get you all to be more curious! And maybe start by discarding your current definition of maturity and try to rethink it!
Just a few quick links here. If you visit our show notes you’d most likely want links to these things. The first thing we engage with is a random Quora page! We’ve never done this before, but it provided some great material for us to engage with. This probably won’t help you get a better handle on your notion of maturity, but its pretty entertaining.
In our next segment we tried to engage with something from the interwebs that was slightly more substantial and only SLIGHTLY more helpful. We still found it to be fairly strange although we found ourselves agreeing with a few more of the main ideas. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/artificial-maturity/201211/the-marks-maturity
Ultimately we don’t think we got any closer to a firm definition of maturity. It has something to do with emotional intelligence…taking responsibility for things…thinking about others…those are some of the basics, but the ultimate definition seems pretty broad.
This week we closed with a “Reuvenation” (a poem from our dear friend, Reuven). His poem this week was from a collection by Ed Roberson called “When Thy King is a Boy”. We can’t find a copy of the poem to share online, but if you want to know more about the poet here is a brief bio: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/ed-roberson
