I am an avid fan of north shore automation, which is part of a series of projects that I have been working on for the past couple years. The goal of the project is to automate and optimize the work that I do, as well as the work of my team.
We’ve already made some progress by automating our workflows for our projects in general. For instance, our current automation process for our product development team is fairly simple. There are no complex formulas or rules. It’s just a series of simple steps to make sure that we’re on time for whatever we’re working on.
For the moment I just want to take a break. This is a project that we’ve been using for a while. It’s in the production phase, but it’s quite a bit more than just the production stage of it.
I don’t know a ton about automation, but here’s a simple thing to do to make sure that you are on time for whatever you are working on: Take a look at your calendar to see if any events that need to be done in the next 24-hours have been set aside for some time. If they have then you should probably skip them and spend your time focusing on your next task.
The problem with automation is that it’s hard to know what you should be focusing on. That’s why there are so many great products like Wunderlist, Trello, and Kanban Boards out there that are designed for this purpose. As a general rule though, if you are going to automate anything, don’t automate something that you know is going to be a pain in the ass.
Some problems are just hard to fix. The thing you should be automating is something that people use every day and something that makes a lot of sense. For example, the bathroom is a prime example for automating. Most people wash their hands regularly because you can’t go to the bathroom without them. But if you automate the bathroom, you could be doing it without breaking a sweat.
I think people who say “yes, but that’s a pain in the ass” are missing the point. Not every problem can be solved with the same method. But if you can automate something that makes sense, that is, makes a lot of sense, and is a pain in the ass, then you can automate it for sure. You can then automate it until something goes wrong and then you can fix it.
My bathroom is made up of three separate systems. The door to the bathroom is a solid door which automatically opens with a button. The toilet-seat is a separate sub-system which is controlled by a small push button. And the sink is a sub-system which is controlled by a switch which you pull up to turn it on or off. The whole system is controlled by a single small push button. This makes the whole system really easy to maintain.
I love my bathroom. I just love how easily it could have a different system installed. It’s very easy to get to all the systems by just changing the push-button in the bathroom when the water comes up.
This is probably the most useful part of the system. The push-button is great because if you just want to make it go from off to full on, you can do it without ever having to touch anything. If you want to make it go from full on to off, you can do it without ever having to touch anything.
