Have you ever noticed cars slow down going up hills or to the top of a bridge? Once the peak has been reached, traffic speeds up and gets back to speed limit drives. This happens because the gas is not applied a bit more to maintain speed going uphill.
Headwinds can be experienced in business in the form of choppy market conditions, new competitors, supply chain disruptions, etc. Businesses that excel step on the gas. They figure out how to move faster. By doing so, they are way out ahead of the competition when the market conditions ease. How are you making sure you step on the gas at the right time?
