Here's my experience; Each job different=low efficiency=low profit. Boring and repetitive=high efficiency=higher profit.
Totally agree. If some of you guys don't want your "trained monkey" work, send it to me. I'll take those boring, repetitive big paychecks.

I'm at the point in my life now where I no longer covet those "new and exciting challenges" on every job that comes through the door.

I've done more repetitive work in 2015 so far, than in any year of my career. And I'm on course to have my highest grossing, and most profitable year ever. Even though I don't put in nearly as many hours as I did 20-30 years ago.

The commercial vinyl jobs have slowed down lately, probably won't pick back up until after the holidays. I'm back to doing all those stupid little chairs that absolutely, positively must be done in time for family get-togethers or it will surely spell the end of western civilization.

Spent a day at Henry Ford Museum last month.   Epitome of that in his early concepts of assembly line, time and motion studies, etc.   Seeing some of the footage of his assembly line though, arg, shoulder-to-shoulder work at breakneck pace.
