Use Milestones to Track Overall Progress

The first week of October brought cold winds and rain to Dickens—as well as numerous calls and e-mails for project management advice. I knew the next few months leading up to the end of the year would be busy as my calendar was filling up fast.

It required rescheduling a late meeting with Alex, but I told Jerry I could make it.
