Not everything needs to be automated, not everything should be automated.

Did you find your way to work okay today?

Did you take an unexpected turn to get a coffee and satisfy that inner desire for one?

Not everything needs a process, not everything needs to be the same, it just needs to accomplish the goal you have in mind.

Sometimes the grind, the grunt work and the non-automated processes are what lead to our greatest ideas.  Sometimes it’s that last second flip of our decision to try something new that yields the biggest gains in our lives.  And sometimes our best experiences with others come from the manual tasks we have to perform – the deployments that go wrong, the tricky bug fixes or the waiting for a callback?

Automation is great, but we shouldn’t sacrifice our best interactions to for it.
