Why is the order in the ON statement different from the order we select columns?
The solution stated is:

SELECT premium_users.user_id,
   plans.description
FROM premium_users
JOIN plans
  ON plans.id = premium_users.membership_plan_id;

So we select premium_users.user_id first and plans.description while in the ON statement we choose plans.id first and premium_users.membership_plan_id second. Does this matter in any way?
