Doing less Doing less Presentation Transcript

  • Doing Less A treatise on automation, being lazy and spending more time on stuff that matters.
  • We Are Lazy Repetitive work sucks but we keep on doing it because that is the only way we know how or we are too lazy to change our habits. http://www.flickr.com/photos/videolux/2389320345/
  • We need to be really lazy...
  • Every time you repeat a task ask the question. “Can I automate this or make it more efficient?”
  • Some Examples
  • Xero
  • Bank Rules Speeds up reconciliation, less mistakes. It takes a couple of minutes to set up each one but after a month you will have most of them set up.
  • Mail Chimp
  • Mailing Lists Do you send out emails to groups of people on a semi-regular basis? Still sending via Mail.app and bcc’ing the recipients? Start a mail list. Free until the list gets to a size where it is worth paying for.
  • CapsuleCRM
  • CRM Keep organised and focused on your tasks and opportunities. Don’t do ‘busy work’ when you could be focused on closing deals.
  • API’s
  • Capsule API Tie it al together with the API’s. A user signs up for My Tours and it automatically creates a contact and opportunity in Capsule with a follow-up task.
  • Scripts
  • Capistrano Automated deployments of websites. “cap production deploy”
  • What can you automate?
