Data entry is not for the faint-hearted. If you have ever been unfortunate enough to have faced any sizable amount of information to be uploaded onto a database you will understand that, after a while, it starts to take its toll. The mind yearns for a new challenge, a breath of fresh air, anything – just no more data entry. The trick, I found, is to take fairly regular breaks but, to do what? Here’s an idea: given that you are probably using Excel already, why not attempt to produce some Excel art? I’m sure it’s easier than it looks – how hard can it be? Tatsuo Horiuchi is 73 years old and he has nailed it!
I have absolutely no idea how this works and the three minutes that I just spent trying to find out cost me dearly (in terms of patience and mental well-being) but if you know your way around Excel any better than I do, why not give it a try?
