Guest Post: Samoa Donuts So I haven’t ever done a guest post. Never! But I’ve wanted to do one with Jenni from Urban Poser ever since I first came across her blog. Not only are her pictures by far some of the best out there, but her recipes are incredible. I don’t understand how her brain comes up with some of these recipes she makes. Oh and by the way, you’re welcome. Picture this: You’re sitting in your cave, shooting the breeze with your buddies Grok and Brog. Ok, ok….so historically speaking that’s probably not 100% accurate. When Juli asked me to guest post on her blog, I immediately started trying to figure out what I wanted to make for her. Sometimes when I’m creating a recipe, it takes a little while to zero in on the perfect balance of ingredients and complimentary flavors, but in this case, literally millions of people have already stamped their seal of approval on the classic combination that is the Samoa cookie.

Goals, strategy and tactics for change The Goal: Who are you trying to change? What observable actions will let you know you've succeeded? The Strategy: What are the emotions you can amplify, the connections you can make that will cause someone to do something they've hesitated to do in the past (change)? The strategy isn't the point, it's the lever that helps you cause the change you seek. The Tactics: What are the actions you take that cause the strategy to work? What are the events and interactions that, when taken together, comprise your strategy? An example: Our goal is to change good donors to our cause into really generous donors. If you merely ask someone to help you with a tactic in isolation, it's likely you won't get the support you need. And it certainly opens the door to a useful conversation about whether your goal is useful, your strategy is appropriate and your tactic is coherent and likely to cause the change you seek.

Time doesn't exist until we invent it The transcontinental railroads led to the invention of time zones. For the first time, everyone needed to be in sync, regardless of what village one lived in. A few generations later, we're in all in sync, to the second, thanks to the computers in our pockets. Time is borrowed, wasted, spent. We find the time, slow down time, take our time. Its Miller, quitting, clobberin time. Time is so variable, so based on our experience, that the absolute measure of time is almost meaningless. Time on a long bus trip goes so much slower than time spent doing what we love with people we care about. Time doesn't exist, not in a way that matters to most people.
How to Turn a Pallet into a Garden Good news and bad news. I had planned to film a short video showing you how to make a pallet garden, but the weather didn’t cooperate. I was stapling the landscape fabric onto the pallet when it started drizzling and got really windy. So keep reading my pallet loving friends, instructions on how to make your own pallet garden are just a few lines away… Find a Pallet The first thing you need to do is–obviously–find a pallet.

Get Your Pallet into Shape Once you’ve dragged your pallet home, give it a once over. Let the Stapling Begin! Lay the pallet face down. Now for the sides. Now for the Fun Part–Planting!
