I like the idea of clearly defining a project, but like most everything else, it has a fractal boundary that gets hard to define the closer you stand. The article made me think of gardening/landscaping projects. When I _build_ a new garden, that is a project. However, once it is done and the main plants and rocks in place, there is still regular weeding and mulch replacement and occasional plant replacement or reseeding. That's on-going maintenance and not any sort of building-a-garden project..
Sometimes, I will remodel an existing garden. Replacing a single plant seems like maintenance. Replacing 2 or 3 or 5 plants starts seeming like a project again, requiring more planning before starting and there will be definite end times and goals.
But that is also true when replacing a single shrub.
