Scope Creep

As a Project Manager, one of the most important things to avoid is scope creep. This is when you state that a project will contain item A and then it grows to include items B and C. It seems this phenomenon is NOT limited to software projects....

This weekend Jeff cleaned off the mildew that was under the front overhang. This took several hours and the house now looks great.

When Jeff came back in, he said, "We need to replace the front lights".

It seems that after several hours of close contact with the tarnished and paint spotted lights (bottom picture), he could no longer bear it.

Off we went to Lowes. The new lights are installed (top pictures) and looked fantastic.

I think that all black is much more "in" now than the antiqued brass - looks good!
