Have you noticed the call to automate our lives? Promises of more time to do more stuff entices us to get on the fast track of automation. There are articles to help you be massively productive, and digital tools to put your work in motion without a driver.
In fact, if you build it, you can automate it, and you hardly have to participate. Life, work, all of it can be on auto-pilot.
But why do we want to remove ourselves from the equation? When we turn things into an assembly line, we become a commodity. A commodity may be useful, but it’s also comparable, dispensable, and soulless.
Instead of creating an assembly line, streamline …
- Say no to the stuff that doesn’t matter.
- Ask for help.
- Be productive like Paul. (less robotic, more human)
- Enjoy what you do. We can see that joy and it makes us want to hang and work with you.
- Automate the stuff that doesn’t require your heart and soul.
- Think less about strategy and more about people.
If you’ve been turning your life and work over to productivity apps, scheduling tools, and an overbearing calendar, step back, reassess, streamline, and get back to the heart and soul of what matters most.
That usually means doing less, but instead of a sacrifice, it will an enormous blessing.
