What is a Project for you?

reading through PMBOK (For those Managers who are new to PMI ;) it is the Project Management Body of Knowledge), This definition hit my mind :

"A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or
result."
Well when the PMI defined this they definitely had more to say ... but while I would like to elaborate on this definition leaving aside the technical definitions of the project... It would be good to know what does a Project mean to you?

As per PMI it means that a Task that has some definite begining and some definite end which is derived from the output of the task compels to form a Project... Now lest go beyond these lines and understand what else does a Project contains when it is defined.....

A Project is definitely a task that involves one or more full time and/or part time resources.

WHat more can you think of?
