September 1st ushered in the new Fiscal Year and with it refreshed targets to strive for. Traditionally, you tend to think of financial perfomance with any use of the word "fiscal", but there are many other considerations when building a strategic plan and budget.

My husband is an avid cyclist and will often comment about the challenges of riding into a strong headwind; there have been times he was uncertain how he could make it home. He's been tempted to call and have me pick him up, but just "gutted" it out.

So, I was very intrigued to read an article in an airline magazine featuring an interview with one of their pilots. My aeronautics pea brain was intrigued by his explanation that a headwind could actually be a "good" thing when taking off and landing...huh?
