    Great podcast! Very inspiring. I plan to learn more excel keyboard shortcuts--stop using the mouse so my fingers can fly across the keyboard.

    I will also be helping a coworker by automating a report he does monthly which involves a lot of cutting and pasting into a spreadsheet. It is a perfect task to be automated with VBA.

    I also plan to learn and use Tables in excel more often.
