A Few Formulas & Actions Go a Long Way

If you can learn concatenate, vlookup, paste special, and filters…you can go a long ways. Once you get your data in a spreadsheet, you can always manipulate it. It’s just a matter of creativity and finding the right formula.

Spreadsheets Improve Your Whole Life

My wife keeps our meal ideas in a spreadsheet. I keep ideas in a spreadsheet. My backpacking checklist is a spreadsheet. My notes are in a spreadsheet. Once data is in a spreadsheet – you can manipulate it, change it, edit it, implement it, move it to another place all so easily.

Spreadsheets Are Job Security
