Like most of us, I don’t exactly find thrill in falling into long lines just to pay for something. A feeling of unproductivity creeps up whenever I get stuck in this endeavor. But unfortunately, I had to one day. I needed to pay my credit card bill and found myself in a bank with a spiraled, long queue of people waiting for their turn. Normally, this site would cause to me to balk and consider another time or place. But it was my due date and thought the sacrifice of waiting in line that day would pale in comparison to the sting of paying the late charges.
I’ve been quite busy the past weeks and was not able to finish the additional updates of 100 Floors until now. The update featured yet another building dubbed as the Seasons Tower (ST). It has 15 floors so far with theme and graphics related to the Halloween season. 🙂
Still very challenging and thought-provoking.
Here are some clues for Season Tower Floors 1-10. Enjoy. 🙂
Another great puzzle-solving app – The Curse by Toy Studio Media Corporation. This one’s both available for iOS ($2.99) and Android (Php41.22) devices.
I started playing it a few days ago and upon first glance, I already found it interesting and challenging. Each level is categorized into different types of puzzles such as Tangrams, Riddles, Slide the Blocks, Hamiltonian, etc. The levels are also designated as easy, medium, and hard. Hints are also available through In-app purchasing.
Since you could skip through the levels, I went on to browse through some of the relatively easier levels first. I do intend to complete all the levels though and will share some clues and hints as I figure them out. 🙂
This is the second of six posts related to the article entitled, “60 Tips for ‘Trep” by Jimbo Owen Gulle in the August 2012 issue of Entrepreneur (Philippines) magazine.
This batch focuses on the operation side of doing your business.
10 Tips for Entrepreneurs (Operating Your Business)
1. Keep “failing forward.”
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work…I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others…I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent.” –Thomas Edison, inventor and entreprenuer
2.Sell it straight.
“Eliminate the middlemen. Both you and your customer will benefit.” –Michael Dell, computer magnate
3. Pay attention to details.
“Whether your business is a startup or an established brand, you must be very involved in it. Doing that keeps you abreast with developments and hones you nose for the business.” –Jose E. B. Antonio, president and CEO of Century Properties Group.
4.Treat all customers equally.
“I ultimately made the decision to cater to the public because after all, my reason for putting up the clinic in the first place was to help the most number of people…Our staff is trained to treat all clients equally, whether they’re famous or not. We are a customer-centric organization – everyone’s a star in our clinics.” –Dr. Vicky Belo, founder of Belo Medical Group
5.Start small, but build relationships with the big guys.
“Cinderella turned us down. No one would have us. It was such a gray area then – and it still is – about whether it was legal to spoof known brands. No one wanted to be part of the fallout…Cinderella then relented (after Gift Gate accepted consignments of their shirts) and accepted us in their stores.” –Charlie Robles and Drew Marcelo, founders of Spoofs Limited Inc.
6. Master the weather to meet production demands.
“Production and shipment have to fit a certain window, so we always make sure that we get our products in time for events that are important for our foreign buyers.” –Meshelle Villanueva, marketing director for Shelmed Cottage Treasures
7.The mall isn’t always the answer.
“Rather than looking for in-mall locations, we prefer high-density and high-visibility areas frequented by our target market. We only need 25-60 square meters of space, but always make sure all our outlets are air-conditioned and clean.” –Teodoro Ferrer, president of Generika Drugstore
8. Turn obstacles in you favor.
“When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity…The choice is yours, and yours alone…It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.” –Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics
9.Grow, and keep growing.
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” –Benjamin Franklin, inventor and politician
10.Do what comes easy.
“I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress.” –Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook
