Excelling at our jobs

Monday, April 18, 2011 By

My friend, A.W., and I were talking about an all-day Excel class she took at work. It sounded like torture.

"It was, Stacey. It was," she said. We agree about the necessity of the software and the usefulness of it. But there are few professional tasks that I despise more than devising an Excel formula.

"That's about as exciting as actuarial science," I said. "I'd rather study taxidermy. At least then I'd know what to do with the body when an actuarial scientist dies of boredom."
