Looking back on initial planning means returning to the board (not the Borg, but the board) . . . our cork board was/remains our war board. Perhaps a bad choice of metaphor, but whatever. It has already gone through many permutations: months have shrunk, been moved, gained new tasks.
We had three principles going in, which have carried us through so far . . .
And though we have not yet reached this goal, it only means the cork board will be revisited (at least) one more time.
