If for any reason the above Odysee Video doesn’t play smoothly for you, the back up YouTube version is here.
This was a two part question from our MeWe thread. Basically the person asked the following…
Automation for efficiency? Background… how to find better ways to do “what was always done”, think outside the box. Also, how does one that is suddenly surprised with a manager that questions everything you do and all you have as an answer is “That’s what they trained me to do”. Third, how do you determine if you’re spending too much time on something not really productive or important. Thanks.
Well I am not an automation specialist but I will tell you three things that have made my life better is so many ways…

On the other part, how to come up with a better way to do an old thing, and is a thing worth doing in the first place I think I can be of more help.
