If it’s a simple task or action, there are very few things that create a more efficient use of our brain cells. The reason is simple. When we do something that we know is going to be efficient, our brain doesn’t have to devote the energy to finding a way to do it, and that’s why we do it.
Automating means that you don’t have to tell the machine “Hey, I’m doing this, can you just click my mouse?” Instead, you put some mental pressure on the machine to get the job done. This can be a very effective way to get things done. In his article, “The Simple Way to Automate Success,” Tom Peters says that one of the best ways to automate is to force yourself to focus on a small task that involves only a few moves.
Well that’s true, but not only is this a way to force yourself to focus on a small task, it’s also a way to force yourself to get things done. Sometimes all you have to do is get out of your comfort zone and try something new.
If you have a small list of steps to complete, or even a simple list of a few things to do, then automating them is one of the very easiest ways to get the job done. Think of it this way, if you have to write a letter, you can just write it in the form of a list. If you want to get your house ready for a party, you can simply go to a website, fill in the basic information, and start filling in the rest.
You can make a list, or even a spreadsheet, that automatically does all of the work for you. There are many tools out there for this purpose, and the most popular ones are Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, and Lotus 1-2-3, all of which are free.
The most basic form of automation is the “one-click” job. You type in your information and then hit the “submit” button. This is basically the same as adding and editing a spreadsheet, only the process is far less time-consuming. It’s also a far more reliable way to do things because you don’t have to worry about making changes when the computer is not running that program.
That’s one of the reasons why automation happens so frequently in the real world. You get that one-click job done and you’re on your way. The problem is that most people in the real world are too busy making money to be taking care of such simple tasks. Plus, the automated system can easily be compromised by someone with a bot or botnet and that can be even harder to police.
The idea of a one-click system is an interesting one to think about. A one-click system would be where you just type a command and it will run. One issue with that is that if you type too many commands and they don’t all work, or if you forget how to use a specific tool, you’ll end up with a mess. Also, one-click systems don’t always run the way you’d like them to.
The idea of a one-click system is to avoid this problem by instead using a more complicated system that takes more time to set up, but allows you to save the settings you want to use in your browser. For example, you could set up a service that runs when you log into your computer and then automatically sets up your computer and your email to use an email service that is specifically tailored for your computer.
One of the most common mistakes people make is to use a simple system and to leave the computer you use for other things open to the world. This is a terrible mistake because it leaves you open to security breaches, malware, and viruses. It’s also one of the easiest areas to compromise because a simple machine is easily replaced with a more expensive one.
