Welcome to Pointy Haired Dilbert – Know a Little About YOU

blogging - 7 comments

Hello dear reader, Welcome to Pointy Haired Dilbert.

A cross section of PHD universe

Know a little about yourself. Read this,

You are awesome. You want to learn excel, become better at charting. You like to experiment with excel and see what more you can do with it. You want to be better at your work. Excel plays a major role in that and you are smart enough to know that you should polish your skills. You are not really a dummy. You know how to do most of the basic things using Excel. But you also acknowledge that there is so much more to learn.

You are imaginative and smart. You can pickup clues and construct the right image. Given a tutorial on “finding the second largest number in a list” you already know what to do for “third smallest number”.

You are savvy and sensible. You keep up with technology and changing practices without going nuts. You like to gather your ideas for better dashboards, formulas or charts from more than one place and process all that in your mind to do your job better. You also adopt quickly when you see a better way to do something.

You have fabulous sense of humor. You are too fun to take yourself too seriously.

You connect with others You contribute to others knowledge and help them out. If you know a better formula or charting hack, you gladly share it with all others using a comment or forum post or even an email.

You are one of the 8069 individuals. That is less than 0.00013% of the world. You are really special.
