Me life has been revolving around an ever evolving reporting system. And office politics to defend the only and most vital resource I have: time.
There is much more than can be done. There is beauty in this world, but all we do is sort data elements on a sheet of paper and stamp it. I am the one who casts this monochromatic process into the digital world, I am a software/web/application developer/engineer/programmer, and they call me IT guy and ask me for reporting applications.
Automating things is an essential part of my ideology. I tell machines how to do things, and I don't want to do things I know how to tell machines how to do. In other words, I don't want to perform tasks that can be defined algorithmic and delegated to a computer.
Because when I do this, I free my time, the only resource I have, to do other things that make me less of a cost center, and more of a creative center, a business engine, an innovator...
