Keep It Simple: Imports — Fast & Flawless
In a world filled with complexity, it’s interesting that we still find simplicity attractive. Perhaps we’ve realized that simplicity provides a sense of relief and that unnecessary complexity rapidly becomes burdensome. Keeping things simple is generally more effective.
There are lessons to be learned from those who keep it simple, such as Winnie the Pooh, Linus from Peanuts, and Forrest Gump.
Formatting can be an absolute nightmare.
Winnie says, “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words.” It’s true. Communication that is straightforward is a lot easier to receive. Life “being like a box of chocolates” and you not knowing what you’re going to get is all well and good when you don’t have a deadline looming. You may have been given to wondering, like Linus, “How much of human life is lost in waiting?”
You have a ton of spreadsheets you need to import into your CAD platform. The import itself can be tricky, depending on your platform of choice. But the formatting? Well, that can be an absolute nightmare. It’s not just the headers, or only the row heights, or the fonts alone. It’s often the whole darn enchilada. Splooey, splat, sigh. Now what?
As Winnie the Pooh says, “Good judgment comes from experience.” If you’re sick of the formatting issues and the length of time it takes to manually fix each of those issues, then you’ve certainly earned your good judgment from experience.
