Redirecting your energy

I've seen people spend a lot of time crafting notes for their teammates to document the right order of steps to accomplish a repetitive and cumbersome task.

This is great, but you know what's even better? Spending the time on automating the task, so nobody has to learn the proper order of steps, and there are no more mistakes.

Sometimes you need to redirect your energy towards the right solution. Instructions on how not to mess up are great, but it's always better if there's no way to mess up in the first place.

Want to do something cool for your team? Look around, found a process that depends on a set of instructions, and automate the whole thing.
