Subject: myway015 - It's All About Purpose..

Purpose

noun - the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

verb - have as one's intention or objective.

We human beings tend to talk about "finding" one's purpose. That is confusing, since much of the time one's purpose is obvious and natural - breathing, eating, walking, sleeping.

I am more concerned about the purpose we human beings chose, what we want to accomplish; the objective of our activity.

Once an objective is determined, the steps (a process] must be developed.

Back in the sixties i worked for Univac. My soon to be boss, Chuck Frederickson was working a management problem in his department. They couldn't produce a good product.

Chuck, a qualified flight instructor, took members of his department for a ride in a small private airplane. Flying an airplane is a process, which also includes a check list, makes a place in one's memory because of it's serious consequences if not followed properly.

To be continued -

I really believe in public discussion; however, Email is the best process for my software in it's present state. Please put a "MYWAY" in your title to get my attention. rest assured, I am working on a better system.
