Winter is not always the most enjoyable season. Cold, rain, snow, ice, bare trees, and shorter days can make you feel as though spring will never arrive. Every year, though, spring shows up. The trees bloom. People head back outside to soak up the sun. At times, life on projects sometimes feels like winter. The never-ending meetings. The schedule overruns. You might feel like the project end date will never come.

Estimating project work is fraught with opportunities for things to go badly. The customer wants new work done on the project - work that isn't currently part of the scope, of course. Or perhaps the project hasn't started yet and you're still putting time and energy into good solid work estimations that will turn into timeframes of effort in your master schedule. The possibilities are endless.
