Nice list :) I'd add one more:

Automate repetative tasks.
Anything that you do repeatedly that takes up time is worth considering. There's obviously diminishing returns - theres no point spending 5 hours building an automation tool to do a job that takes 5 seconds, but for example if every day you log in to your server and copy a backup to another location - thats a prime candidate for automation.

In terms of a programming setup, things like your code quality tests - those are good to automate with something like a git hook that won't allow you to commit your work if it doesn't pass the checks.
