While it may seem that my answers sometimes contradict themselves...
In one situation I inform you how to be extremely prepared
In another situation I suggest that you fly by the seat of your pants
... they, in fact, do not contradict each other because I'm speaking to different people.
You see, there is no 1 correct way to do something. One person's obstacle may be a walk in the park for someone else. What someone needs to do early in his/her career is very different than someone who has a track record that can be turned into a marketing campaign.
What's important is not focusing on the "contradictions" but instead figuring out which answers apply to you at this point in your career.
