Microsoft Excel, and other spreadsheet programs, are becoming more and more popular to create pictures. These programs have become more popular primarily due to their being on just about every computer out there. They are readily available, and fairly cheap, all things considering. They also don‘t require much computer knowledge to operate, and even less artistic skill to use. So how exactly are people using this program to create a masterpiece? Simple; it‘s all about choosing the right colors and filling in the boxes. Just print out a color copy of what you want to make, draw a grid on the paper, and fill in the corresponding spreadsheet box with the appropriate color. It‘s kind of like a paint-by-number. Most people aren‘t creating new works, they are re-creating more famous ones.
Most business owners know how they want to run their business. To a large extent this is based on the business owner‘s personal values, ethics and interests. Sometimes the day to day problems pile up at such a rate the owner loses sight of what they wanted to achieve as they get buried under layers of demands on their time. Most people would not consider carrying out a health check on themselves. Instead they consult an external expert who will take an objective look at them and provide impartial advice. In business a similar route should be followed as anyone involved in the day to day running of a business may not notice a significant problem due to familiarity. The old adage about the value of a fresh pair of eyes is true in business as it is elsewhere.
