Summer Vacation Is Dying, Here’s How to Save It

We’ve all seen idyllic 8mm home movies from summer vacations of bygone eras. A swim-capped child waves at the camera before cannonballing into a lake.

As you depend on the spreadsheet more, you end up spending more time maintaining it than actually using it. You’ve been swallowed into the “spreadsheet hole of despair.” You might be thinking, “Sure, spending time on spreadsheets takes up a lot of time, but it’s worth it.” But is it?
