How to Excel in Using Microsoft Excel

Here are some tips to keep in mind if you are using Microsoft Excel for the first time:

  1. Do not panic!
    If you get afraid and insist that Microsoft Excel is totally a complicated application, your mind will find it difficult to accept that you can succeed in mastering its use.
  2. Treat the software as an ally rather than a foe.
    Microsoft Excel is designed to make life easier. So, step in and welcome it into your life.
  3. Believe you will master the basic uses of the software.
    Get to know your new friend.
  4. Imagine and proceed.
    It is not correct to start a new project without studying it, is it? Plan what you want on paper and proceed on to designing in Microsoft Excel. It is easy and saves time and whining!
  5. Follow instructions and practice.
    It is not enough to read instructions and apply. Try to practice using the software in real life situations. Make a Personal Balance Sheet to control your cash outflows, for example.
  6. Continue learning.
    You just cannot imagine the might of Microsoft Excel, can you? I cannot. That is why I am in a journey to discovering this great software.
