Automate the Little Tasks
Let’s talk about tools that automate tasks so you don’t have to work as hard. I didn’t know whether to associate tools like IFTTT and Zapier with National Lazy Day or Work Like a Dog Day. When you automate your tasks, you can stop working like a dog and get a little lazier because work is done for you.
Zapier and IFTTT, which stands for “if this then that,” are two of the tools that will help you automate some of these little tasks so you don’t have to think about them. Just connect your cloud-based services, social media accounts, phones and more, and create little recipes (“Zaps” with Zapier and “Applets” in IFTTT) that trigger under your rules.
