Automating repetitive tasks can save you up to 5 hours per week
(No Coding Knowledge Required!)
My dad HATES tech.
“Brooks, the email deleted. I don’t know how. How do I get it back?”
“Brooks, the email sent before I was done. How do I delete it?”
He is a great guy. This is only to give you an example. Needless to say, he’s not a programmer and neither am I.
Yet he’s able to spend every day in dad paradise: researching our family genealogy online.
How’d he do it?
But it wasn’t easy at first. It was not easy for him or me. It took me years of trial and error to figure this stuff out (stuff like automating text so I don’t have to type out my address/phone number/email 20x per day, creating invoices in 2 seconds, and filtering emails).
It required me to dive into complicated set-up instructions. I’m sure you’ve seen them: random forum posts and articles giving you the 10 “easy” steps to automate XYZ, then you look at it and it’s basically jibberish that you feel like you need a computer science degree to figure out.
It all began when my leadership role was complete. I had to support my team and make them successful. It was crucial to quickly find information about clients and get it to my team. All of this information was on paper. I decided to digitize the data, but then there was the dilemma.
How can I digitize hundreds upon hundreds of documents, without spending weeks doing tedious, mindless work?-The tedious task of scanning, naming and organizing each document is overwhelming.
My wife and I just bought our first house. We were working hard to get our mortgage paid off before we had our children. Let’s just say that I was extremely motivated to do anything that I could be successful in my career.
However, digitizing the documents, naming and organizing them, as well as working with them, took way too much time. I felt that I was spending more time setting up this than I was simply having everything on paper. Have you ever felt that way with a new tool you’ve tried out?
I realized there are many tools that can automate 95% my manual tasks. My computer could be my time-saver, instead of taking it.
Automation was my key to finally letting go of my time.
But it was hard to find.
These tools are amazing, but many of them are much more difficult than the websites suggest. I’m not a programmer, but I’m pretty technical and even for me, I had to spend a lot of time messing around to get the tools to do what I wanted. They’re not user-Friendly for Non-Smokers-programmers like us, and the instructions don’t make sense a lot of the time.
But I persevered and, after many hours, had my perfect automation system in place. I was able set up automated systems which saved me hours of searching through papers. I also became more responsive to my team.
My company was acquired multiple times. This gave me the opportunity to rise through the ranks. I was also able travel to special management programs, such as New York or Boston. Additionally, I presented automation tips at our client conferences.
Now, whenever I run into a challenge, especially a technical challenge, I know there’s a solution — it’s just a matter of figuring out what it is. I gained confidence from this project.
I found that I loved helping people with technology and decided to make a career shift to help other people realize the potential benefits of technology. It led me to quit corporate work and pursue what I loved, rather than what was necessary to pay the bills.
Then I successfully taught automation to my dad, and I knew anyone could do it (again, he’s a smart guy — tech’s just not his thing).
Automation has made my dad and me both pros. It’s changed our lives.
Before I go into all the details and all the scripts that we use, however, I have a question for you:
Is this you?
1. You know the benefits of automation but haven’t set it up yet.
2. You’ve tried automation and even checked out a couple tools like TextExpander or Hazel, but when you tried initial setup, you got overwhelmed.
3. You’ve tried to automate your workflow in the past, but you found that trying to set up the automation program took you longer than it would have just to do it manually. You’d like to automate, but you’ve been afraid to try again.
If any of that sounds like you, then I’m guessing one of these is true:
1. You don’t know where to start with automation, and you don’t want to waste time on automation that takes longer than doing it manually.
2. You don’t know if automation will work for you.
3. You’re not technical (as one of our clients said, “Coding and scripts scare me, I don’t even know what they are.”)
There’s a reason you’re stuck, and it’s not your fault. You’re not alone.
Why You Haven’t Been Able to Automate (It’s Not Your Fault)
You’ve probably blamed yourself for not being able to figure automation out, but the truth is that it’s not easy. There are 3 main reasons people can’t automate:
1. Confusing Instructions
The software tools don’t have great phone or chat support available (if they have support at all), and the instructions you find online are confusing for non-programmers. The people who write articles and forum posts about automation tend to be highly technical and don’t break it down so non-programmers can understand.
They assume a prior level of tech knowledge that you don’t have. One client stated:
“My biggest frustration is that I don’t understand the jargon or technical wording to set up an automation system — I lack the basics. I would love to set up a text automator or Alfred but I just don’t understand the directions. I have tried setting up workflows and can’t quite get them to work because I really lack the basic computer knowledge. I find it difficult to find the time to teach myself the basics.”
Automation seems to take a lot of time because you need multiple programs to automate everything you do.-This is confusing and can be time-consuming.
And because the instructions are confusing, you’re not 100% sure you set it up right, so you end up double checking everything…which ADDS time instead of saving it.
You worry that to really get it right, you’ll have to buy a book or read a manual before you can use a tool. There are many tools. It is hard to find the time to go through all of these manuals. Which brings me to my next point…
2. Mangel of time
Finding out what you need to do with which tool takes too much time to figure out, and you’re afraid of the big learning curve to get started. One client stated:
“My biggest challenge is finding the time to set up and learn the automation techniques. I am SO busy growing my businesses that the automation tasks have a tough time breaking into my priority list.”
And if you’re REALLY busy, the amount of time you spend on repetitive tasks doesn’t leave you time to set up the automation you need!
However, you might wonder if it is worth the effort to research and set up in order to get nowhere.
3. Automation It seems cool, but not helpful
Let’s be real, there are a lot of nerds.-Automation hype can be exaggerated. One of our clients said this:
“I’m not doing a lot of automation, as I don’t see a lot of real time-saving opportunities to automate. I’ve checked IFTTT, Zapier, etc. but the feeling I get is that most applets are cool but not really helpful.”
What if you spend a lot of time getting something to function the way you want it to, and then there isn’t adequate ROI for that type of task?
So you connect two apps with Zapier and that saves you a couple seconds…so what?
Another client wrote to us: “I haven’t found an area where automation can help me. And the apps that are available for automation all seem too complicated and come with little to no instruction.”
Imagine Automation This saves you 5+ hours per week, with zero effort or technical skill
Imagine yourself never having to repeat a task on your phone or computer.
Typing your email address, phone number, or mailing address…
Answering a frequently asked client question…
Entering information into contracts…
Creating expense requests and submitting expenses for reimbursements…
It all happens in less that a second. Effortlessly. It took you no time to set up or code. Everything was taken care of. It works perfectly, so you don’t have to test it.
This will allow you to save at least 5 hours per week and give you 250 hours back in a single year. That’s over 10 days of your life!
What would you do if you had an extra hour each day?
Every day, finish work an extra hour early
Do you have a passion project that you would like to work on every morning?
Do you spend an hour each day reading or praying?
It’s a great way to make a difference in your daily life. Because I’ve done it, I know. So does my dad, who is the least tech-savvy.-Smartest person on earth.
That’s why I’m so excited to show you how to get that: automation that works — effortlessly.
