When you hear the term spreadsheet, what do you think of? Do you think of them as a tool to use for your business and projects, or a tool that you see your accountant using when you visit their office?
I’ve always used spreadsheets to keep my life organized and running smoothly. From my earliest days of using Excel on the library computers, I always liked the structure and simplicity of logging my data in rows and columns.
Spreadsheets are one of the best ways to log and organize data. Frequently, I use them to organize projects or take notes on something new I’m learning. It’s easy to use a spreadsheet like a blank canvas, and then order the data into a structured format later.
Spreadsheets can handle everything from simple calculations to complex functions that transform your data. Google Sheets is no slouch when it comes to spreadsheet apps that can work magic on your data and help you find meaning in your data thanks to formulas and functions. Fortunately, formulas in Google Sheets aren’t difficult to learn.
