It is very important to understand exponential when planning for the future.
Why is this crucial? Simple, you may think you have tons of time to prepare but in reality you may not. For example, the last financial crisis how quickly did that move... How about the Cypress bail in...
Finally, many students think that they cand deal with things after they graduate, but can they wait? Should they wait? If you ask me, why wait, start now :). Sure, it can be nice to put things off, but do you want a job right when you graduate or 6 months after you graduate, well you get the picture.
