New domain, new look: Welcome to Empire.Kred

Empire Kred

Last week we switched over from EmpireAvenue.com to Empire.Kred, today we switch to a new design that evokes our Kred brand but also keeps what made the former Empire Avenue a special place. Without further ado, some quick highlights!

  1. Mobile Friendly. This new design is much more mobile friendly and we’ll continue to enhance that aspect of the design in the future!Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.49.14 AM
  2. Reduces Clutter. By switching to a single column format where possible, we’ve forced a reduction in clutter in the interface which should encourage new members to learn the ropes fasterScreen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.32.29 AM
  3. Kred Scores. We’ve added Kred scores to your profiles. If you have Twitter, we’ve already given you your Kred Score. Connect your Twitter account to get your Kred score included. We will announce more on how Kred scores will be added to the game later.Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.53.13 AM
  4. Visual Missions. We’ve changed the Missions layout to be much more visual.
  5. Mission Images.

Flitting

Make It Your Problem

Do squirrels say “person” and jump from something important to get a better look? Are they easily distracted and drawn to shiny thing? Is something new more appealing that what they are currently doing (climbing, eating, cheerping, smelling, ..)?

Do you have problems focusing on the task at hand? Are you easily distracted from something you are doing by something that appears in your peripheral? I am not being judgmental because it happens to me too. Sometimes what is around the corner is more important than what is in your face. But if you (or others) are concerned that there is a trail of half completed and abandoned work behind you maybe an exercise in focus would be helpful.

Some ‘experts/ would suggest that meditation or yoga could help you become mindful – this seems like a lot of work and a big commitment. I find scheduling my time helpful…

No One Is Safe: $300 Gadget Steals Encryption Keys out of the Air, and It’s Nearly Unstoppable

BGR

Just when you thought you were safe, a new hacking toy comes along and rocks your world. Imagine a tool exists that lets hackers pluck encryption keys from your laptop right out of the air. You can’t stop it by connecting to protected Wi-Fi networks or even disabling Wi-Fi completely. Turning off Bluetooth also won’t help you protect yourself.

Why? Because the tiny device that can easily be hidden in an object or taped to the underside of a table doesn’t use conventional communications to pull off capers. Instead it reads radio waves emitted by your computer’s processor, and there’s really nothing you can do to stop it.

Focus on Your Strengths

Make It Your Problem

Unless you are a tennis ball, you don’t want to be well rounded. Be the best Bob, Jane, Tanya, Diana, Mike, Jon, … you can be. You  have been given passion, learned and mastered skills. There is one thing or many things that you are remarkable at. There  are also things that you stink at. I stink at anything that requires extreme attention to detail – double entry book keeping, baking, jigsaw puzzles.

remarkable slogan

I made the choice to focus on the stuff that energizes me, that inspires me, that I know I am really great at and reduce wherever possible the stinky stuff. I  don’t resent doing it but I know there is someone else who is much better and enjoys it.

Give yourself a break today and do more of the work that you are remarkable at and less of the stuff that someone else is amazing at doing…

Renewal

Make It Your Problem

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are but here in Calgary, the birds are singing praises to the coming spring. Nests are being built, gardens tilled, trees are budding and the hint of rain is in the air. The temperature today will be 18C/68F. We are having a picnic in the park and I am back wearing shorts. I had a great run this morning with only one layer instead of the two I needed earlier this week.

Spring is near. That is the anticipation I feel. Like a child waiting for Christmas morning it is both glorious and painful.

Something else is in the air or the air in my head. As this corner of the planet renews it triggers rebirth and excitement in me and the nest remarkable client, amazing opportunity, spectacular  project, exciting opportunity. I am sure that excitement begets excitement so I…

Eav Daily Tips

Doing and Running Missions on #EAV could be a Win Win Win Situation!

I Talked with my friend Rob about it and asked him to give his insight too, Rob started on the Avenue a couple of month ago. See here his insight!

So… Why Do Empire Avenue Missions anyway?

My purpose for doing missions is to promote my blog. Everything I do is to promote my blog, and to increase SEO to get more people to my blog from search engines and from social media sites.

So I create missions on Empire Avenue to do that. I would like to have comment on my blog posts but I do not expect it from my Empire Avenue Missions. What I am really looking for is to get shares on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, google+, etc.

In Empire Avenue you are not…
