Processes help standarize ways of working so problems don’t arise with the same easiness.
Analyzing them at the begininng, when you are doing something new, may give you a new perspective.
If you do always the same things, you might detect what is wrong in your process, and can improve it until you have a better thing.
After some iterations, your processes can be even more consistent and can help you a lot.
But processes are not easy to follow, they need a lot of discipline. And it’s important not to think that they are something solid impossible to move or change.
Do not see them as something distant. They are your tool. Your tool for being consistent and avoiding mistakes.
Train your discipline, it will help mark a difference in your life.
DO you have processes for doing things? I guess SCRUM might count as a process.
