There are moments in life you realise you are repeating too much. Too many elements of a weekly or monthly routine that are repetitious.
And whatever the repetition is, for most an automated alternative is available.
For me, one of the irritations of being my own boss is the administration part of it. And talk about repetition right there...
Some weeks ago I said: "Enough!" and started lining out which processes of my incoming admin could be automated.
Turns out that with Zapier, I was able to tackle most the repetitive work I usually did by hand and by myself: collect incoming invoices from g suite, rename them with a standardised structure and file them in the correct folders on a shared drive that my accountant has access to.
It takes some time, but after having it functional there is no looking back.
Even better it stimulates the drive to find similar solutions for the other parts of the administration.
It is important to keep looking at what you do from a layman's view and simply ask the question: Should I be doing this or can it be outsourced? And in latter case, the digital automated solutions should come first.
Now, I am saving time and have room for more automated improvement.
