Don't fall into the trap of thinking this is the way it will automatically always be and that beer really needs this long to mature. The better you can manage fermentation (temps, oxygen, etc) the less off flavors are produced during fermentation, so the less time it takes to mature. As you get more experienced I suspect you will find that your beers are maturing faster and faster. You could inadvertently end up waiting on a beer that is in fact at it's prime and that would be a sin

That is one of the beauties of beer brewing, you don't have to be meticulous (it helps). If you mess something up, time will often be the cure. If you find your beers consistently take a long time to age, then start to look for potential issues - if you care.
