I haven't posted in some time. It's probably a lack of imagination.
Why is it that some people are content to do the same job, the same way over and over. I don't think it's that they're lazy. In most cases what they are doing is labor intensive. They might be very proficient and fast at what they do.
I think it's a lack of imagination. They can't imagine doing it a different way. Not automated, not faster, not different. Just doing it.
I follow a couple of blogs on Excel. The posts are mostly about customizing and automating so one can do things faster, and exactly the way you want them to be instead of relying on what the programmers envisioned. The desire to do things differently requires imagination about the way you want things to be.
Work on your imagination and who knows where it will lead.
