Not all skills are created equal

As a parent, I can’t help but think how much there is to know, and how many skills I need to have in order to set my kids up for success. It can be quite overwhelming, until I think about the 3 key areas that are essential no matter what:

  1. Sleep
  2. Diet
  3. Activity

If these are the only things I do well as a parent, at the very least I will have laid the foundation for learning, growth, and all the more advanced and complex areas of my children’s development.

Similarly, Excel has no shortage of topics and skills, yet after 13 years I have found the 3 cornerstones of spreadsheet success to be:

  1. Navigation
  2. Formatting
  3. Formulas

If these are the only skills you focus on, not only will you have a strong foundation that most people are missing, but there is no limit to why you can accomplish, and no unnecessary distractions from all the more advanced Excel topics.
