According to Richard Samson
Automate as much of your existing job as you can. Systematize via paper, procedure modification, or conversion to electronic processing–just so you don’t have to do as much work anymore. In effect, tell the robots trying to take over your job: “You’re hired. Now here’s what I want you to do.”

If you behave like a robot, you risk being replaced by one.
Let’s build an army of robots, not be an army of robots.
Aside: A blog is an example of automation. 24 hours a day, everything published here is available to every web-connected person in the world. Because of automated translation tools, the information is potentially of use even to those who can’t read English. It would still be available even if I were sick in bed or dead.
