Windows shortcut 
CtrlEnter
Mac shortcut

With multiple cells selected, this shortcut will enter the same data in all cells in the selection at once. This is a great way to skip a copy & paste step. Cells do not need to be contiguous; use Control (Win) or Command (Mac) to select non-contiguous cells before using Control + Enter.
