Can you do things last minute? Does it always work out as well? In this episode I talk about why it is important to work ahead of yourself, dig your well before you are thirsty. Just like in a village, it's too late to start digging a well for water when everybody it already thirsty. You need to do this in advance, otherwise you could face the consequences. It is important to not be panicking later on. 

I share the story of figuring out what to do for my Master's thesis, a 6 month exploration of a topic which could very well lead to a job and somewhat define your future. Although I arranged things many months in advance, some of my classmates waited until a month or only even weeks beforehand to figure out this large logistical problem.

I also talk about the importance of this in travel. It is great to be spontaneous and it really helps you grow as a person but it can be more expensive. Finally there are some things that you just can't be spontaneous with such as ordering a passport and getting visas for countries.
