Technology is incredibly powerful. It can do the work that previously only humans could. Whether we talk about working in large factories, making invoices, or keeping track of work. Technology can do it all, without getting stressed or breaking a sweat.
That makes us wonder, can technology be used to reduce our work, build better processes and help us be more productive?
Of course, it can! But how?
By leveraging automations.
Alex Bass shares how he uses different automations to make his life (& work) a lot easier and have more time on his hands. For example, he has an automation in place to take all support requests and put them directly into his Asana dashboard based on their priority level, so he doesn’t have to track support tickets manually. That would be such a frustration and time sink, just trying to organize the support tickets.
This is just one of the many automations Alex has in place to do less of the menial work and give more time to doing focused work. Technology is a tool, which, if used correctly, can do a lot of your work so we can focus on what’s actually important.
In our conversation, Alex shares his story of how he started his first business with his stepdad as his partner, how he keeps himself productive by using automations, setting internal & external boundaries, getting clients to respect those boundaries, and much more.
