How does one measure success? How does a business measure success? We all know the quick answers to these questions but what is truly success. A strong Balance Sheet? Driving the latest popular car? No, I  do not think so.

To quote a favorite writer Ralph Waldo Emerson…

“What is success?

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate the beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch Or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!”

It is my belief that this is how we at MIBAR gauge our successes, both business and personal.

You could not implement a successful ERP solution with out wining the respect of intelligent people, To earn the appreciation of honest critics from inside and outside the organization. We are a family of like-minded people who every day strive to be the best we can be at home and at work.

With this in mind I cannot help to think about the current COVID pandemic and how we all can do more and become even more successful.

I recently took and passed a Johns Hopkins Course on contact tracing as there was a need for people to volunteer their time. This led me to a group called the Medical Reserve Corp (MRC). Mind you, I have no training in the medical field, but do have computer skills that I could put to work.  So  after some additional training on the FEMA site (Passing the Various Emergency management training courses where you learn about unified command and communication which is critically important when operating within a team.

One success I would like to share is the work I have been doing with the Duchess County MRC.
