A sense of achievement is imminent. The last goalpost is just about in sight, if not around the corner. If it cannot be seen, it is sensed. There is a sense of (nervous?) excitement in knowing (no longer hoping) that a project is nearing its conclusion.

So as the case may be for the kind of business you are handling. It was said on more than one occasion. It requires an insurmountable amount of discipline for a single business operator to conduct his company or freelancing affairs with regularity, always keeping to the schedule and meeting the client’s deadlines. Always performing and producing in accordance with the client’s discerning wishes.

Short of having to close their doors for good, it should be considered to be a great achievement keep staff coming back for another day at the office.
