A flash and a peek
February 12 , 2014

In all parts of the world or organization, efforts are put into the activities of the year right from the beginning of the year up till the end; targets are set, materials are sourced, recruitments are done, processes are initiated, obstacles are encountered and maybe surmounted, helps are rendered to those who need them and at the end of it all as a fiscal, business, financial or athletic year stocks are taken, the recruited are appraised, accomplishments are observed, recognized and noted, failures are castigated and rectified, and above all a roll out is done for the new year.
