Automation Isn’t Good or Bad

CJ Chilvers on automation.

Automations aren't good or bad. They're a powerful tool that can make your life more livable, or take the life out of life.

I’ve automated parts of my Friday newsletter like collecting all the links I post in the week and putting them in the newsletter. I haven’t automated commenting about my week, I mean I could, but I won’t.

I could type up 10 - 15 generic paragraphs about what’s going on and no one would ever notice.

When it comes to automation, I want to automate the routine things that are done the same way every time without variation. Then I can invest in the things that need my input.
