I heard recently that the average office worker now spends 28 hours each
week answering e-mail. No wonder times are tough — everybody’s too
tied up with e-mail to get anything done! When computers were invented,
people thought they’d use them for something much more exciting than
e-mail. Oh, well. Welcome to the future — it’s already here and it’s already
booked solid.
Fortunately, everyone gets more done now than in the past, partly because
of tools like Microsoft Outlook. In fact, hundreds of millions of people
worldwide use Outlook to get more done every day. But most of those people
use a fraction of Outlook’s power, so they work harder than necessary
while getting less done. The people I’ve trained find that knowing even a tiny
fraction more about what the program can do for them makes their lives
easier. Let’s hear it for making your life easier!
Outlook and Other Programs
Outlook is a part of Microsoft Office. It’s called an Office suite, which means
it’s a collection of programs that includes everything you need to complete
most office tasks. Ideally, the programs in a suite work together, enabling you
to create documents that you couldn’t create as easily with any of the individual
programs. For example, you can copy a chart from a spreadsheet and paste it
into a sales letter that you’re creating in your word processor.
