Every software project has to go through this discussion at least once during its lifespan:
– "Shouldn't we automate this process to avoid problems and increase our velocity?"
– "Nah, we don't have time for that. Let's just fix things manually and hope everything works from there."
If you participate in this topic regularly consider switching to a different project or company. Day spent doing manual work is day wasted.
You don't have to be 'hard at work' or get as much done as possible in given time. These skills do not carry value.
Being creative and able to connect the dots to find the most optimal solution is the shit. It's also totally different than being lazy.
