I have Sparkpeople to thank for my data entry knowledge!
Wednesday, July 03, 2013
After writing my blog last night, I started thinking about why I only needed 1 hour of clinic training on the new on-line client record system. We were all booked to have 2 half days.
Then it occurred to me that when I first started Sparking 3 and a half years ago I was totally confused at first and it took me ages to move around the system and find out how to track nutrition and fitness. How to access the exercise videos and enter the world of data entry!
I am a firm believer in that life events happen for a reason. My 2 years away in Santiago gave me the opportunity to join Sparkpeople and learn this system and make some wonderful Sparkfriends. Little did I realize that what I learnt along the way with Sparkpeople would be so helpful in my work when I came back to Australia.
Because Sparkpeople is such a huge site with so many options it has made it so much easier for me to "get it" with the system at work.
Who would have known that at high school I made a point of not doing the "Commerce" class as I was not interested in being a typist and office worker! I wanted to be a nurse and nurses don't need to type!
So here it is 40 years down the track and what am I doing? Typing at work!
Just goes to show that one cannot predict the future and one just moves on with the times.
Talking of moving on, I had better move onto bed!
as it is getting late.
Thank you all for your responses, I thought I may have "lost" a few friends due to my lack of support and absence but I was so pleased to read your responses and I will get back to you all over the week. It means a lot to me, thank you.
