Process 1: doing the budget (about 20 line items)
Process 2: building a new Oracle installation
Process 3: running test suite on our authentication system
Process 4: helping new consultant set up his system
Process 5: banging on the RT tickets
Results? Oracle machine down, can't remotely access it after rebooting, consultant frustrated, RT tickets blowing in the wind, budget deadline missed, lunch missed, forced to drink Diet Vanilla Coke.
