It can be a weird line here.
At my previous job, we were moving our entire data center from one building to another. As part of it, we wanted to, just in case, get a backup of every database right before the machines were unplugged. I wasn't involved in the setup at all, but I was going to be one of the people doing the work (we did it in shifts over the weekend). I was the 3rd of 6 or 8 shifts. I get in to get briefed by the last person. I'm told:
Here's how it works. We have a script that will back up the databases. You have 20 servers you're responsible for. Open twenty windows in SSMS, start the script on each of the twenty servers through the twenty windows, then copy & paste all the results.
I lost my mind.
Instead of immediately opening a bunch of windows, I sat down and worked on a Powershell script for about the first hour when I was supposed to be running backups. Give it a list of servers and it opened a threaded connection to each and ran the script, waited for all the results and put them all into a single output file. My method ran about 2-3 hours faster than the "open all the windows" approach, and it involved zero copy & paste. I handed the script to the next person, who used it successfully. It was used the rest of the weekend.
Now, is that being a hero, or just helping out where it was pretty obvious that help was needed? I could see arguments on both sides.
