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.
Hard work and manual labor are acceptable to a point.
The problems arise when we start being proud of the hard work we do instead of inventing solutions to prevent it in the first place.
- being lazy = not getting much done, not caring about the results, someone else will handle this
- thinking lazy = figuring out how could I achieve the same or better results with less work
