What’s the magic secret to learning new software as fast as possible? I’ll bet you’re like most people in that you install the software and just start using it, right? The only problem with that approach is that you end up learning the least amount possible to just barely get the job done and then you don’t pursue learning any more. This usually means that you’re not really getting your money’s worth. The best way to learn fast is to still “just do it”, but assume that everything you want to accomplish can be done automatically by the software, and dig through the online help to find out how. Then, most importantly, take the time to learn it well. Although it might seem you are spending lots of effort in the beginning, you’ll save thousands of hours in the long run. Follow this simple advice and you’ll be the office expert in no time.
