Tech Leader Pro podcast 2024 week 1, making computers work for you
Tuesday 9th January 2024
A new year, and a new weekly sequence starts!
Today I want to talk about automation, specifically how you use technology to automate your life.
Let's begin with some questions:
When you are offline, do you have online technology working for you independently?
How many of your daily tasks are automated?
In general, do you feel you work for technology, or it works for you?
Computers are automation machines: they should work for you, never the other way around.
Advanced computer usage means having automated processes working for you while you sleep.
Regular users can feel frustrated, even stressed using computers.
They associate them with manual work like writing reports or data entry, not with automation.
Sadly they are usually correct, as they are getting low-value from computing.
The computer is an automation device.
Here are my personal use cases for daily automatons:
