In the beginning of the book Tuesdays with Morrie, Mitch was somewhat miserable with himself.  He had set out on one journey and ended up in another direction.  He was dissatisfied with his life.

Every Tuesday Mitch started to visit Maury and talk with him about life.  Maury wanted to know if Mitch had found happiness and satisfaction in life.  Mitch had to admit that he had not and this got him to thinking.

In my opinion Mitch matured and learned to appreciate more things in life after spending time and learning from Maury.  Maury was very humble about his life and the things that he enjoyed in life.  He has learned a lot from Maury.
