When determining process, ask yourself What is the purpose?

I have a major pet peeve.
I find that more and more folks are not working with intent or purpose.
This drives me nuts.
When you develop a process or procedure, it needs to be simple and straightforward to be successful.
The only way to make it simple and straightforward is to understand and know the purpose of said process.
You can't just do things because 1) it's always been this way, 2) it's the 'easy' way 3) it resolves the issue quickly.
Quick resolution may not equal the most appropriate method.
Before you start anything, please write down your intent and make sure your team (family, friends, coworkers, etc) is on the same page.
