Is there such a thing as too much automation?

The robots are taking over!

I don’t know about you, but I love automation. Anything that I do that I have to do again and again gets automated. Booking time on my calendar is automated, I use templates to create repetitive issues, I even have my home lock the doors at night automatically if I forget. My favorite kinds of automation make my work more efficient and easier. My absolute current favorite? The automated Sprint Planning in ZenHub. I haven’t had to manually plan a Sprint since we started internally testing it earlier this year.

Which tasks in your day are sucking up the most of your time? How have you tried to automate them? Is there such a thing as too much automation?
