Holiday processes sorted

What exactly is a process? Is it only for business? Of course not. A process is nothing more than just a series of steps taken to achieve a goal. From a business standpoint, we take process steps to ensure that an order is successfully dispatched and paid on time, or that a customer request is answered in such a way that the customer stays with your company. Is it any different in private?

As we all know, one of the most important processes of the year is rapidly approaching. Yes! The holiday season! And what exactly is the holiday season all about? We take many steps to get there: happiness, spending quality time with our loved ones, hearing "yummy's" at the table, and, if we're lucky, seeing the snow outside the window while Christmas music plays in the background and presents are being unwrapped for those who celebrate Christmas and planning trips. In this sense, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
