It’s natural for programmers to focus on automation problems. It’s imperative knowledge. That doesn’t mean automation is where the value is. Often what you need isn’t an “easier way” but rather a way that gives you more leverage over things that matter. Totally different POV. Programmers are also good at optimization. Just like automation, we mistake optimization for value. “It’s what you already do, but easier!”
