How do you measure progress?

I saw widget on emergingwriter’s blog, some kind of horizontal thermometer showing the actual word count and percentage of the intended total completed so far. I assume it’s a crude measure, not taking into account rewrites, editing, general catastrophic crises of confidence, you know, the usual things. However it may serve to focus the mind on the goal.

So I’ve done 127,000-ish. I can’t see it going beyond 130,000, and maybe it’ll shrink a bit. That should mean I’m nearly there. Doesn’t feel like that somehow.
