identiMetrics Newsletter & What Now

April 2021

What a Year! 

For one year I've been growing my beard long. I've been a hermit hiding away in a room and eating endless amounts of potato chips. Seriously, I ate so many potato chips that the leading potato chip companies asked me to stop so I wouldn't create a supply chain issue. 

For many of us, this has been a year of uncertainty. It's been a year that most of us have never seen before. That being said, it's time to ask the the following questions.

I grew up in a Pennsylvania Dutch family and the best saying that my grandparents shared with me was: The hurrier I go, the behinder I get. I didn't understand that when I was younger, but I do now. It means - don't wait until the last minute. Plan ahead. 

Here's how you can make sure that you don't get behinder

  • Schedule yearly maintenance that you might want to perform now. 
  • Complete your order and get the ball rolling for the coming school year. 
  • Figure out the logistics of setting up before your tech people are swamped during the summer and have no time. 
  • Make sure everything is ready before your school year starts.
